shorttitle DIAMON06
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Somendra
Beloved Osho, what is all this stuff about bodhisattvas? I don't believe a word of it. There is no such thing.
Question 2
Beloved Osho, where does care for others become interference?
Question 3 from Sw Yoga Chinmaya
Beloved Osho, why don't you allow nonvegetarian food in the ashram?
Question 4 from Savita
Beloved Osho, what is it to be surrendered to you?
Question 5 from Pramod
Beloved Osho, as I listen to you talk about Buddha and Sariputra Subhuti, Ananda, Mahakashyapa, I feel more and more that you were actually there when Buddha lived and that you understand and revere him not only because you share the same consciousness, but because you experienced him directly when he was in the body. Is this so?
Question 6
What do you think Osho? Have I the slightest idea what you are talking about or would the slightest idea be the wrong thing to have?
Question 7
Osho, Buddha says that all we are is a result of what we have thought. It is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought happiness follows him like a shadow.
How does this relate to no-mind for we can think purely and control our thoughts, we can obtain happiness, yet no-mind seems to appear to be contradictory to controlling thought?
Question 8
A few years ago through yoga and meditation I experienced some peaks of prayer. My whole being felt the bliss of it -- all was divine love, and thankfulness. For some reason I came out of it and now I find myself back in the dark valley. Somewhere things went wrong. It feels guilty and so arduous to stand up again. Please comment.
Question 9
Osho, for two months I lived in the commune AA and for two years in some communes in France. They have all failed -- hate becoming stronger than love.
I felt that I could be more totally myself living in a group with collective decisions and property and free sexuality. What do you think of the way of living in communes?
