Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Sw Prem Peter
Beloved master, I have always thought that the sense of science lies in its utility for human needs; in helping to provide enough food, finding treatments against sickness, creating machines to deliver man from hard and stupid work, etcetera.
Until now iI have always been convinced that there is nothing wrong with science, but rather with the popular attitude towards science: That it can discover the interior laws of life.
Now I hear in your words that science itself is a root of the miseries in the world, because it destroys the mysteries of life and hence leads to an antireligious attitude. Are you against science?
Question 2 from Saroj
Beloved master, why are the frauds worshipped by people, and people like Jesus, Buddha and Socrates condemned, stoned and killed?
Question 3 from Ma Prem Anuradha
Beloved master, I don't know who I am and I never could know who you are. All I know is that this someone-or-other loves you, whoever you are.
Oh, beloved master -- you are such a sweet apple to eat in the dark.
Question 4 from Ma Prem Sohan
Beloved master, "He has tamed his horses...." Yes! But how to do it? What is the way to tame them? I either control, repress and stop myself, or I am led by my senses and driven by my "animal." With both I feel not at ease and I constantly move from one side, repression, to the other -- driven.
How to come out of this trap? Is watching and awareness all there is to do?
Question 5 from Sw Gyaneshwar
Beloved master, I am a very jealous person, particularly as far as my wife is concerned. Even if she looks at anybody, I become enraged. What should I do?
