Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, why have all the great masters come from the East?
Question 2 from Anand Shaila
Beloved Osho, don't you get bored, bored and fed up, day after day answering the same questions, while we sit there with ears blocked, eyes tight, mouth sealed, never ever getting the message -- that there are no answers? You continually astound me in your dewdrop freshness in the early morning light, and still I am blind, deaf and lame, cut off from sharing in your radiance except for brief moments.
Question 3
Osho, I don't enjoy these Buddha sutras. They are dry, difficult and complicated. Is not truth simple?
Question 4 from Shobha
Beloved Osho, is the only thing that keeps us from coming home the doubt that we are not already home, which is reinforced by everyone around us?
Question 5 from Ma Deva Tulika
Osho, the other day I came through the gates with an Indian sannyasin and he was turned away by the guard with no reason given. When I spoke to Laxmi about it, she more or less told me to mind my own business. Whenever I see people being unjustly treated, my immediate reaction is to go to their assistance. Is it really none of my business what happens to other people?
Question 6
Osho, I have always felt the need for little rewards at the end of the day -- a few beers, cigarettes or drugs. Now none of these things bring any satisfaction, yet the desire for something, some form of gratification, continues. What is this longing and what will satisfy it?
Question 7
People think I am mean, but I feel I am only miserly. What do you say, Osho?
