shorttitle TAO108
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Ma Anand Poonam
Can one believe in Tao, not interfering with other people's lives, accepting what is now, and by profession be a psychotherapist? What, or how, is a Tao way of doing therapy?
Question 2
I imagine you can talk about all the 'traps' of growth because you experienced these problems in your life. Would you be willing to talk about your real life experiences rather than just the abstracted, impersonal concepts?
Question 3
Osho, when am I going to become enlightened?
Question 4
You said the other day that duty was a four-letter word, but I have also heard you say many times that you want your sannyasins to be tremendously responsible. Please tell me, are not a sense of duty and a sense of responsibility the same thing? I hope, beloved Osho, that I am not confusing you!
Question 5
Why does one cling to the old? Why is one afraid of the new?
Question 6
Is the childishness of senility anything to do with awareness? Is senility a disease of the West only? What is senility?
Question 7 from Ramananda
The last time I was here I saw myself as a beggar; this time a thief. Please comment.
Question 8
What is rationalisation?
Question 9
Why do sannyasins have to change their names and wear a mala? The spiritual jet-set talks about all these 'enlightened masters': 'Osho is more enlightened than Oscar', 'Oscar is more enlightened....' How can we tell what it means?
Question 10
A few short questions, Osho: Why could you not speak for a year and a half after your birth?
Second. What were you doing when you were a kid?
And the third: What do you say about drinking?
