shorttitle SANDS105
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You have said that the Sufis are on the path of love. But then why do they teach so many techniques?
Question 2 from Sigrid, Vidya's mother
What can a guru do for you?
Question 3 from Ananda Buddha
Listening to you, drinking you so deeply every day, I am getting ridiculously intoxicated. I feel ready to quit my secure and maddening job and face an unknown future. But I have been drunk before and always woke up with a hangover and the same old shit to deal with. Is it possible I could wake up one day and be left with just a hangover from you?
Question 4 from Reese Guth
Even though I did not understand what was happening, I have had enlightening experiences through the use of hallucinogenic drugs. I know that LSD is false, but what is, if any, the truth about mushrooms?
Question 5 from Kartik
Is to be a sannyasin a moment or a process? Is a guru really needed to be a sannyasin? If a guru lives in somebody's heart all the time, then what is the necessity of wearing orange and the mala all the time? Was Eklavya not a real disciple?
Question 6
As one evolves spiritually, interest in sex may become less strong. So if I'm not so sexy these days am I getting older or closer to enlightenment?
Question 7
You really confused me when you talked about the differences between love and liking. You said love is committed, but I thought commitment was another kind of attachment. There are many people I love but I don't feel committed to. How can I predict if I will love them tomorrow?
