Question 1
Can you tell us something about the truth?
Question 2
Does everyone have the potential?
Question 3
The poor also?
Question 4
But meditativeness is available to everybody?
Question 5
You are one of the most well-known religious leaders in the world. Do you consider yourself a successful showman?
Question 6
How do you explain the world-wide publicity about you?
Question 7
People all around the world are talking against nuclear war. Do you think you are alone in this crusade?
Question 8
Do you think you and your followers are the only people who have the right answer?
Question 9
But is this not a dictatorial attitude?
Question 10
Every dictator or group has the feeling that they are right or the right answer has got them. Isn't that a danger?
Question 11
You have guided your people on many subjects. Do you give them an idea of what is right and wrong?
Question 12
But you said yesterday that you are not a guru but a friend.
Question 13
But your followers or your friends, they're always looking after you and worshipping you from what we have seen. You're imparting something and they're taking something else. Can you explain that?
Question 14
So you don't feel that you are worshipped?
Question 15
Do you think you were as much a Rajneeshee as the Rajneeshees in the commune?
Question 16
But remember, they're wearing a locket with your face in it. You're not wearing your own or somebody else's.
Question 17
Exactly. Then why do you make people wear it?
Question 18
It's clear that you are their source of inspiration even if you don't call yourself their guru or their leader.
Question 19
How does wearing the mala help these people toward enlightenment?
Question 20
I don't suppose in that fashion.
Question 21
But why should one million people just love one person without that being reciprocated specifically? I'm sure your devotees love each other too, but they don't wear each other's lockets. So you are different.
Question 22
Can you say what you mean by the new man?
