Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, the Vatican has just issued a statement in which the Pope suggests that cults, sects and "new religions" should be seen as a challenge to church and society.
The statement says that deprogramming of cult members is misguided. The Vatican made the statement after consulting Catholic experts in seventy-five countries. Have you any comment?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, I recently read about an American woman who claims to be possessed by a thirty-five-thousand-year-old being from Atlantis called Ramtha.
The woman dispenses mystical messages from Ramtha via satellite TV, in concert halls, and on thousands of audio tapes. People pay up to four hundred dollars a seat to hear the thirty-five-thousand-year-old outpourings which, just by coincidence, seem to be based on a fair amount of modern, self-help therapy.
I know you say to trust existence, but I cannot help but be skeptical. Can you help me?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, when I read the first book I had ever read of yours, Come follow me, and I came to the story of Bodhidharma who was staring at the wall, I collapsed in great laughter for almost an hour. The following night I had an extraordinary dream because I dreamed in words -- which I had never done before. It was a four-second dream:
An old man asked a young man, "Is?"
The young man answered, "Yes."
The old man asked, "What?"
The young man said, "Nothing."
Please comment.
Question 4
Beloved Osho, Shrivatsa Goswami, the so-called spiritual master of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness, the Hare Krishnas, has recently stated that you are "very low class, not to be counted as a religion, an outright scoundrel."
Do you have any words for this saint?
