shorttitle RAZOR11
Reader of the questions: Sw Anand Vimal.
Question 1 from Prem Jaldhara
Edited excerpt: 12min 47sec, parts of question 1 **
Beloved Osho, why have human beings gone through this struggle since the very beginning? Were there not already highly developed civilizations living on this earth? And yet their consciousness got lost and man had to start all over again. Right now it seems to be a particularly dark period. Is there such a cosmic law that says, "only out of the mud the lotus can grow"? And will this earth ever become a garden of flowers? In deep gratitude and love.
Question 2 from Kranti Satbodha
Beloved Osho, when I was a student at a Japanese Buddhist university I heard the word consciousness. Beloved Osho, what does it mean?
Question 3 from Prem Prasado
Beloved Osho, sometimes while reading a poem by Kabir there is an experience of "aha," even though the mind doesn't always comprehend it. Sitting with you in darshan I was reminded of this poem:
Ignorance shuts the iron gates
But love opens them.
The sound of the gates opening
Wakes the beautiful woman asleep.
Kabir says, "Don't let a chance like this go by."
Question 4 from Ma Prem Patipada
Beloved Osho, I am afraid to ask you this question for I feel your answer could really destroy me. Your sword is so sharp these days that even the sound of the "whoosh" can make me tremble, but I must ask no matter what. Why don't you answer my questions?
Question 5 from Dhyan Aum
Beloved Osho, I have been with you for the last six months and now the moment has come that I am forced to leave. To be honest, this is the only way that I would leave. My whole being is shaking. My heart is broken and my eyes are full of tears, but nothing can take away what I feel in your presence. I am not good at expressing what I feel; it is just a feeling of thankfulness. Thanks, Osho, for everything. Thank you for allowing me to stay in your house, thank you for your beautiful gift, and especially thank you for being so compassionate with me.
