Question 1
You have been quite silent to the outside world for four years -- in words, I mean. Why did you choose now to talk to the sannyasins again, and also to grant interviews like this?
Question 2
But you also speak to the press now.
Question 3
Would you like all the people in the world to be sannyasin, or are they a chosen few?
Question 4
Your teaching is very philosophical for the uneducated mind. So do you think that your teaching is more fit for the best educated, and for the more affluent?
Question 5
So you don't think much of people that try to soften the poverty in the world without remedy.
Question 6
Can you give a few names of those people? Examples?
Question 7
You don't believe in religions, you also do not believe in God. You are called "Bhagwan," the blessed one. Who blessed you then?
Question 8
You have this beautiful and very efficient settlement here in Oregon. Could it be everywhere in the world, or do you like to have it in America?
Question 9
But here in Oregon you have some harassments with the officials in this respect?
Question 10
Do you mind to have these harassments? Or are they just nuisances that you have to...
Question 11
Bhagwan, is it that you play with words, that you like to use words just to make fun of other people? Or is it that you think only with words, instead of only silent communication, your philosophy and your teaching can be transmitted to the people?
Question 12
Do you mind sometimes, when your teaching is misunderstood?
Question 13
If you decide to go into silent communication, or to go away from the sannyasin, would you mind if the movement of the neo-sannyasin would then be dissipated?
Question 14
In case you would leave the movement of the sannyasin out of your own reasons, would you mind if this movement then would dissipate? Or would you like it to grow by itself.
Question 15
I understood that you were against politicians in the world. But if you would compare a socialist state and a capitalist state, in which would you think the sannyasin movement could grow better?
Question 16
Why is that, you think?
Question 17
Can you give the centuries of the lives you have spent there?
Question 18
You were using, in another interview, the word circus. What does it mean for you, circus?
Question 19
Eating manna.
Question 20
What do you think of people who spend a lot of money to buy Picasso and Salvador Dali?
Question 21
Do you like the paintings of those...?
Question 22
You were talking of Mozart before....
Do you listen to Mozart sometimes now?
Question 23
Is the whole world for you a stage? Like a theater and... Or is it that you put a stage on the world?
Question 24
And if your followers are the artists in the circus, would you mind to leave this place in Oregon and go another place with them?
Question 25
Do you think I am afraid?
Question 26
What is Germany for you and your movement?
Question 27
But they take everything serious....
Question 28
I didn't realize that you would be thinking about the cuts we still have to do.
Question 29
I have to repeat the questions again for the camera. You used the word circus for the world. What does it mean?
Question 30
Is the whole world a stage for you...
