Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Patanjali has stressed the importance of non-attachment, that is, cessation of desires, for being rooted in oneself. But is non-attachment really at the beginning of the journey, or at the very end?
Question 2
How is it that an enlightened one gives of himself to one only, as Lord Buddha did in the case of Mahakashyap? Really, this Buddhist tradition of one disciple receiving the light continued for eight generations. Was it not possible for a group to be its recipient?
Question 3
Practice is a sort of conditioning at physical and mental levels, and it is through conditioning that society makes man its slave. In that case how can Patanjali's practice be an instrument of liberation?
Question 4
You said that the spiritual endeavor may take twenty to thirty years or even lives, and that even then it is early. But the Western mind seems to be result-oriented, impatient and too practical. It wants instantaneous results. Religious techniques come and go like other fads in the West. Then how do you intend to introduce yoga to the Western mind?
