shorttitle ART08
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Osho, who are you and what type of play are you playing with us? And how long will you play? Please explain.
Question 2
Dreams are unreal. But I have heard and read that the mother of Mahavira saw nine white elephants in her dreams before Mahavira's birth. Then what does that mean? And what is the use of answering the dreams of questioners?
Question 3
For people who have been so clouded by lies and deceptions in the waking state, can remembering dreams, re-enacting and experiencing them in the waking state, be a useful method -- the first step on the path of higher consciousness and truth? Can this method hasten the thirst for God until the point comes when the dreaming mind is dropped?
Question 4 from Priya
How can I come closer? What should I do?
Question 5
I have heard sannyasins say that they are with you for some benefit to them. They have a motivation of enlightenment or something likewise. But I do not have any thoughts of enlightenment or any benefit which I may get by being with you. I just love to be in your presence without any motivation whatsoever.
Please comment.
Question 6
I do not feel I am a man yet I see a man's face in the mirror.
