shorttitle TAO112
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
The pundit in today's story -- was he not also a beautiful Taoist? Perhaps not reached the ocean, but on the way?
Question 2
I understand what you say about the so-called knowledge, but it still persists.
Question 3
Beloved Osho, this ashram seems to me to be like an oasis in a desert, and in the middle of the oasis is an unfathomable well of pure crystal water, and the well is Osho. But round the edge of the oasis, under the palm trees, some very strange games are being played. I know it is good for children to play games, it can help them to grow up and widen their understanding of this world, but when these games get out of hand, they may easily do more harm than good, and I believe this is dangerous. And, too, thirsty pilgrims coming across the desert in search of water may see these strange games first and depart bewildered with their thirst still unquenched. I tell myself 'judge that ye be not judged' but I am a little troubled! Please comment.
Question 4
Krishnamurti is vehemently against gurus, meditation techniques and 'all the rest of it'. Apparently you are a guru and giving meditation techniques. To me, you and Krishnamurti are both showing the truth, each one in his own way. What is your feeling about Krishnamurti's objections concerning guruhood?
Question 5
Osho, I am sixty-five and yet not decisive about sannyas. What have you to say about it?
Question 6
If some day it happens that there is nobody in the Chuang Tzu auditoriun or the morning talk except Teertha to read the sutra what will you do?
Question 7
Disciples need a guru, does a guru need disciples?
Question 8
I also feel on both paths, but you said that it is not possible to be on both paths.
