synopsis
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, it seems so impossible: so many countries have said "no" to you in the West. But even if the so-called democracies accepted you, what can be done about Russia and the other communist nations? Unless there is a great awakening there, it looks like the world is doomed.
Question 2
Beloved Osho, you spoke the other morning about how much importance we may attach to where we sit in relation to you during discourse.
We seem to do this kind of thing, whatever the circumstances or the group of people we happen to find ourselves with. The compulsion to judge also seems symptomatic of a need to categorize people, to compare ourselves, and thus come to some definition of who we are.
Would you talk about the difference between this avid and non-ending struggle to have some kind of identity -- howsoever superficial and transitory -- and the search that becomes spiritual, the quest to know "who am I?"
Question 3
Beloved Osho, in a recent article by Stephen Jay Gould, he said, "Certainty is unattainable in science."
Osho, is modern man at last showing signs of coming of age?
