Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Do you have favourites? Am I one of them?
Question 2
Please explain the difference between rationalisation and 'bullshit'.
Question 3
Why do you make so many mistakes when you quote other people or refer to Biblical events or to scientific discoveries? I have answered this question many times myself in various ways. Now I would like to hear your answer.
Question 4
Why has there never been a single woman enlightened master?
Question 5
Yesterday you said that Zen is the beautiful result of melting Tao and Buddhism, and Sufism the flower that blooms out of Islam and Hinduism. Is your teaching the super-flower, the cross-breeding between Zen and Sufism?
Question 6 from Anand Prem
The danger of your talks on Taoism is that there are a lot of lazy, irresponsible people around who rationalise their bad habits by claiming to be inactive Taoists. Please clarify the difference between a Taoist and a lazy escapist.
Question 7
You speak a lot about the ugliness of jealousy. Yes, it is quite ugly, but any suggestions to us sufferers of the disease who aren't enlightened on how to diminish it?
Question 8
What do you say to someone who, no matter what paths you talk about, always feels that he has one foot on each of them? And don't say that this must be my path! You only mentioned two yesterday, remember? Did I just put my foot in it?
Question 9
You said today 'Ask a buddha why he is happy and he will shrug his shoulders.' Please, Osho, why are you happy?
