Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You said yesterday that science and religion are diametrically opposite. In the West there are many schools teaching scientific mysticism, and the paths of tantra and yoga are also very systematic. Your literature is also deeply and artistically rational. There seems to exist a bridge between the rational science and the irrational religion.
Please comment.
Question 2 from Savita
Won't you speak to us of dreams? I have taken to dreaming I am dreaming, or to living through painful situations of the past or future and dealing with them differently. Sometimes I wake in the dead of night or after a short sleep with such a sense of terror a vulnerability, I feel I am five years old. Your presence is in my dream-consciousness without fail, every dream since I've been here. What are all these new developments? I know you play down our dream-life, but aren't they as much part of the "who am I?" quest?
Question 3
Why does it feel like you are dying when you are in love? Is falling in love a suicidal desire? Or just a self-destructive instinct like the lemmings' march to the sea or a moth's flight into a flame? It's weird.
Question 4 from Vedant Bharti
Why is the relationship between Indian man and Western woman not successful? It always breaks at some point. What is the real problem which comes in, which stops the relationship from growing mature? Please say something.
Question 5
Nothing good, nothing bad. Nothing to gain, nothing to lose. Take it easy. With this as a reference, please explain the difference between an Epicurean hedonist and a Zen Buddhist.
