Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Abha
What exactly is boredom? If I don't do something, even something needless, a panic arises, a huge fear. What is it that causes this frenzy of movement? Why am I so uncomfortable with this feeling?
The frustration of boredom increases when I think that what I would do is equally a meaningless frenzy. I feel caught.
Question 2 from Siddhartha
It seems that though the society is at present rejecting you, by and by it will accept you.
Please comment.
Question 3 from Sohan Bharti
In your last lecture you called Yudhishthira, the Dharmaraj, an irreligious person simply because he lost his wife in gambling. But what about one of your own followers who is mad after wine and women? Not only this but he smokes charas and ganja freely. In what sense is he following a religion superior to that of Yudhishthira? Please explain.
Question 4 from Chintana
"I am life, love, joy. Here I give you life, love, joy." Osho, when I heard you say this two mornings ago, my body trembled with awe and also a deathlike fear of getting lost in you or of missing out completely.
Why am I finding it so hard to receive this life, love, joy, from you?
Question 5
Yesterday you said a major difference between Buddhism and Christianity, Hinduism, etc., was that in the former there were no a priori concepts, and in the latter a predetermined image of God conditioned one's experiencing of that God which in turn reinforces the initial image: a vicious circle. However, in the Buddhist way not-holding a priori images -- holding non-images -- obviously still conditions one to experience God as no-thing, void, which then in turn reinforces the initial non-image -- still a vicious circle. Please comment.
Question 6
I very strongly believe in God. Why do you condemn belief?
