Reader of the questions: Sw Anand Vimal.
Question 1 from Om Prakash
Beloved Osho, in your vision, is charity a part of religiousness? If so, what would constitute charity? Following the Catholic concept, the Indian legislature specifies: 1) relief for the poor, 2) education, and 3) medical relief, as being charity.
What is the concept of charity in the eyes of a buddha?
Question 2 from Sw Devageet
Beloved Osho, in this past year, I have been apart from you for many months, living in the world. I learned how you and your message have become an everyday living experience in me, independent of time and distance. In some strange way, your life has become my life and my life your life.
Being close to you is utterly delicious. When you talk of leaving us, although my tears come, I know you have done your work well. Your vision will live on long after your body has returned to the earth.
I don't have a question, just a gratitude for your tremendous efforts to wake us up.
P.S. Please tell the captain of your ship to cruise around for a little bit longer. He has waited so long that a few more years won't make much difference.
P.P.S. Here's my question: Am I being selfish in wanting you to be here for a while longer?
Question 3 from Yachana
Beloved Osho, for me, after ten years of being with you, you are the most intimate but also the most distant person to me. What is this pain of longing caused by your physical distance which does not get less over the years? Is it really only desire and attachment?
Question 4 from Sw Devageet
Beloved Osho, there is such a sweet and delicious experience in simply being near you. Is it possible that the very presence of you, living in the vibration of your fulfillment, dulls my thirst for my own enlightenment?
