Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Adolph Smith
Osho, I am a scientist working on the question of how life originated from non-living matter. It seems to me that this study of how non-life is transformed into living matter is vital to understanding the relationship of science to religion. The reason is that the study is a clue to how our emotions and spirituality developed in the first place. What do you think?
Question 2 from Zareen
Osho today you said to be constant is to be stupid. The truth cannot change it remains for ever constant. Now what?
Question 3 from Sambodh
Osho, what is important?
Question 4 from Deva Alla
Osho what to do with the feeling of helplessness at the frustration in finding that nothing is ultimately satisfying -- all is not enough?
Question 5 from Eduard Povel
Osho, during the two months that I have been here, I often feel the threat of a new kind of totalitarianism. It is continually presented as the solution: be total in this and that even in not being total. Being total, without fragmentation any more, is not that a final state, the last stage on the way? So is not this adage creating a new ideal with all its frustrations and neurosis to follow? Anyway, for me, not being a superman, it is very rare that I am able to do, to exist, to feel myself total in anything, and I have no reason to hope that it will ever happen as a continuous state. Since it seems to be the condition for the things that are promised here is there still any hope for me?
Question 6 from Krishna Prem
Osho, the Rajkot newspaper, Jai Hind, recently quoted the prime minister, Morarji Desai, as saying, when he was asked about Westerners coming to this ashram, that they were the rubbish of the West those thrown out from their societies. And when he was asked about the establishment of Rajneesh International University, he said that all such universities wherever they exist, should be closed down. He said he did not want any such university to come into being, and that you only talked of sex throughout the day.
He also expressed his great resentment of such obscene institutions, and said he would like them closed down all over the world and that they were not at all necessary. Do you have any comment?
Question 7 from Girish
Osho, why do you use such direct language against the politicians? Can't you be a little indirect and diplomatic?
