notes
synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Richard
Beloved master, why can't I take sannyas? I go on thinking and thinking and thinking.
Question 2 from Yogananda
Beloved master, I am more afraid of living than of dying. Is it possible?
Question 3 from Niranjan
Beloved master, do you call this place a pub? A pub! I have been hanging around this pub for two years and I still can't get the right beer!
Question 4 from Sw Deva Louis
Beloved master, does the seeker have to suffer inevitably on the way?
Question 5 from Ma Prem Maitri
Beloved master, is it possible to miss the perfect jewel? Is it possible?
Question 6 from Sujata
Beloved master, did God really make the world, and just in six days?
Question 7 from Sarjano
Beloved master, "Hold your mouth," you said.
Difficult! Almost impossible for an Italian. My approach to the bodhisattvahood in these days is contained in this little story that has been haunting me for months:
There is this little man (anyone) that I meet in a street (anywhere) and he looks very miserable, like all the little men everywhere... And seeing me after a long time, he says, "Hey, you look great!"
"Hmm," I reply, "I would like to say the same thing about you, but you look so sad!"
"Well, you know my life... I feel so miserable. But what about you? How come you look so radiant?"
"Well," I say to him with a smile, "I have found a master."
"Ah!" he looks at me sadly. "And why didn't you tell me?"
So please, you and the other guy, Buddha, don't tell me to hold my mouth. I can't bear this little man knocking even when I am dancing, and asking, "Why didn't you tell me?"
Question 8 from Anurati
Beloved master, why is everything topsy-turvy here?
