Interview. Ma Deva Shanta : The Rajneesh Times, Germany.
Question 1
In the gachchhamis we are still saying, 'Sangham sharanam gachchhami.' Does the sangha still exist? What do you mean when you use the word commune?
Question 2
The structure in the commune has changed a lot since Sheela left. It seems much more mature now. But at the same time, that spirit of the mystery school is missing, which was alive in each commune of your sannyasins. Do we have to go on our own now?
Question 3
Bhagwan, I know the money source of the communes -- of Cologne and many of the other communes -- two of the big communes, and I know that they were hardly, or we were hardly able to gather the money for going to the festivals. So just from this factual side, I know that this money Sheela has is not coming from the big communes. Just the factual information, I don't know which information you get. But knowing the Cologne business and the money flow it was not possible for her or for anybody to take our money because we were really working hard to get the money together to go to the festival. It's like a commune of three hundred people, we could take about one point four million Deutsche marks to bring everybody over to the festival.
Question 4
Bhagwan, the fact that Sheela could stand between you and us has created lots of mistrust and skepticism amongst sannyasins. When now we get messages from Hasya or Arup for example, the same mistrust arises. How can we avoid anybody between you and us?
Question 5
America was a big experience, Bhagwan. Did we miss? Did America miss? Were the politicians stronger than us?
