Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Last night you said that with the dawn of enlightenment, the space between the two eyebrows, the third eye, becomes all inclusive. The other day you said that all enlightened ones are centered in their navel, and on still another day you have explained about the silver cord in the middle of the spine. Thus, we know about three basic things as the roots of man. Please explain the relative significance and relative functions of these three things: the navel center, the third eye and the silver cord.
Question 2
Buddha inspired a large number of persons to become sannyasins -- sannyasins who would beg for their meals and live away from society, business and politics. Buddha himself lived an ascetic life. This monastic life seems to be the other extreme of the worldly life. This doesn't seem to be the middle path. Can you explain this?
Question 3
Enlighten us about a few practical points for the opening and development of the heart center.
Question 4
You said that Western psychologists now say it is better not to avoid fighting in a love relationship, and that facing it when it comes makes the love more intense. Then you spoke of Buddha's middle path which excludes both extremes. For those who have not yet transcended into the love that is beyond the two poles, which way is preferable for lovers in your opinion?
