Interview. Announcements by Sw Dhyan John : Sushil Mukerji from the Bershire Eagle Newspaper in Massachusetts.
CD-ROM on this chapter: Interview with Sushil Mukerji, Berkshire Eagle Newspaper, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
Question 1
Yesterday you said that you don't know anything about the commune, the people of the commune; but later you said that, "I want this commune to be a place of love, and the best and the finest in human living condition." Then if you are not really in it, why do you want it to be?
Question 2
There is a too much of dependence among the members of the commune on you. They have come here because of you.
Question 3
You seem to be remote from these people, and very cold. To me it appeared to be cold, that you almost don't care. But when you came in, I felt like you were a baul...
Question 4
... I'd like to go and sit with you and chat with you and spend time with you, but I cannot do that because the restrictions. Please tell me why.
Question 5
During the discourse yesterday, you started a tirade against religions. Was it necessary for you to do that? There was a sense of insecurity. You can just say that, "Well, I don't believe in conventional religions." But why try to start a tirade?
Question 6
You were vehement in criticizing people who have a tete-a-tete in a restaurant or have friendship; calling them idiots. But many of the world's great thoughts are from people getting together even in the restaurants. For example, the French artists, impressionism, post-impressionism. I don't think they are idiots.
Question 7
That way I would say that... heretic like you, if I may use the term...
Question 8
But heretic also is an insane person.
Question 9
So Buddha was not insane? He was a heretic.
Question 10
I wouldn't accept that. Excuse me.
Question 11
I also happen to be modern painter. I never heard you qualifying your statement when you criticized the impressionists. I'd like to know what you think about them. Why do you say that these people are just intelligent but they are mad and they have not done anything that is significant and the person who painted a nice beautiful scene has done something that is meditative?
