Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Rami Gilboa
Osho, I am not a sannyasin, and I am visiting the ashram for a short period. I appreciate the work that is done here, but there is one question that I cannot avoid asking. The theory is nice, but from the dozens of sannyasins with whom I have spoken, nobody could say, "I have found the way, I am proceeding, and I am sure one day I will be able to stand on my own feet."
My feeling; is that they develop a tremendous dependency on you and the ashram. As long as they are here they are fine, but when they leave they lose most of the benefits they gained some of them even get worse, because of the frustration. How do you face this reality? Do you prepare them for the day when this ashram won't exist any more? Do you prepare them for the inevitable future? -- the future does exist. Most of them have thirty to forty years yet to live. Will they stay in Poona for the rest of their lives? I don't think so.
I would appreciate your comments.
Question 2 from Devagyan
Osho, I have not got any interest in anything. It all seems to be meaningless. Nothing, excites, provokes or challenges me. There is no juice, no zest. I have felt like this all my life. Why should I do this or that when nothing fulfills me anyway? I am always trying to be joyful -- pretending to feel, to be excited, interested and alive. I am always trying to be courageous, to jump over some of my fears. But for what? I am tired I feel that "I am not" -- and even that I don't really feel.
Osho, where am I?
