shorttitle PRINCI10
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Gunakar
There are moments when I feel no hope, without feeling desperate, when there is recognition that the "I" has fought enough and cannot help anymore. Yet under these momentary covers lingers the one and only longing: to become my real nature, to experience truth and to live it in the world. My mind pleases itself to call this longing an authentic, genuine thirst. However, the suspicion is there that it is just a way to hide my plain greed.
Question 2
Why do you talk only to your disciples? Why not to the masses?
Question 3
It all sounds so great, as perfect as can be articulated. But what the hell do you do in the meantime?
Question 4
Osho, are you really crazy?
Question 5 from Yoga Anando
As sin can be defined as "missing the mark," could one define Zen as "hitting the mark"?
Question 6
You confused me very much by saying that the samsara is the nirvana. Now, from where to begin?
Question 7 from Sw Prem Anam
What is maturity? How can I be mature?
Question 8 from Sw Ajit Saraswati
I seem to be more interested in helping others reach enlightenment than reaching it myself; having grasped it intellectually. I lose no opportunity of talking about it. The ease, the joy, the peace, and the energy that I feel make me believe that I am on the right track. But am I? Or should I better be silent till...?
Question 9
Osho, can you give me two very fundamental rules for the seekers?
Question 10
Osho, what is the first principle?
