Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You said last night that total despair, frustration and hopelessness is the beginning ground for yoga. This gives yoga a pessimistic look. Is this pessimistic state really necessary to begin the path of yoga? Does an optimist also begin with the path of yoga?
Question 2
It is said that yoga is an atheistic system. Do you agree with this?
Question 3
You talked about the significance of discipleship on the path of yoga, but how can an atheist be a disciple?
Question 4
You said that yoga does not ask for any faith. But if a disciple needs faith, surrender and trust in the master as a basic condition, then how is the first statement valid?
Question 5
Last night you spoke of satsang and the importance of the disciple's proximity to the guru. Does this mean physical proximity? Is the disciple who lives at a great physical distance from the guru at a loss?
Question 6
When you ask us to understand something clearly, whom do you address to understand? Mind has to cease. Therefore, it is no use making the mind understand anything. Who should understand then?
Question 7
You said that yoga is a science, a methodology for inner awakening. But effort to be, to go nearer to no-mind, implies motivation and hope. Even to undergo the process of inner transformation implies motivation. Then how can one move on the path of yoga with hope and motivation? Does not even waiting imply motivation?
