synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Patanjali says, 'Do not cling to life,' and this is easy to understand and follow. But he also says, 'Do not lust for life.' Are we not to enjoy in the present all that nature has to offer us: food, love, beauty, sex etc? And if this is so, is it not lust for life?
Question 2
Many of the existentialist thinkers of the West -- Sartre, Camus etc. -- have come to realize the frustration, hopelessness and meaninglessness of life, but they have not known the ecstasy of a Patanjali. Why? What is missing? What would Patanjali have to say to the West at this point?
Question 3
A buddha lives with the highest sensitivity and so he enjoys all his bodily needs. Is not sex also a bodily need? Then why does it disappear in a buddha?
Question 4
You spoke of the lives of Jung and Freud, and I have heard that Janov has not tried his own methods, and he seems to be a very, very ambitious man. Can you comment on his methods and whether he has healed himself at all?
