- Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
- Question 1 from Savita
- Beloved master, I feel like I know the answers. Why do I still allow the questions to become problems?
- Question 2 from Sudarshan
- Beloved master, you want us to be individuals, but during work in the ashram we have to be very disciplined. Discipline and individualism -- are they not diametrically opposite?
- Question 3 from Dhyana Yogi
- Beloved master, why am I feeling I am missing something? That I should be something else? Please help me let go of this garbage.
- Question 4 from Premartha
- Beloved master, I often read the 'Hymn to love' in the New Testament. It seems to me that this is exactly your message. Also, it is significant that it never actually uses the word 'god'. I can find nothing to contradict your basic message in this lovely poem. On the other hand, it seems to be exactly what you are saying in your discourses. Am I right?
- You have such a beautiful voice that it would be really nice to hear you say some or all of it, especially as I feel you will soon stop talking publicly altogether. Here is a copy of the hymn.
- Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.
- Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
- Love never faileth: But whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come then that which is part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face-to-face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of all these is love.
- Question 5 from Digambara
- Beloved master, only one step?
