Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You said that you are trying to develop the third type of psychology, the psychology of the Buddhas, but where will you get Buddhas for study?
Question 2
What do you mean by the psychology of the Buddhas? There have been thousands of Buddhas in the East. Had they not created a psychology of the enlightened ones? Had not sages like Kapil, Kanad, Badarayan, Patanjali, etc., established the third psychology?
Question 3
As you have said, my life has been a misery -- but since coming to you the misery has gone. Though I know that my life is not yet blissful, a satisfaction has come with everything that happens to me. This has created a lack of desire to do meditation, to seek at all. I am just happy to float along. Am I just lazy?
Question 4
According to laing, the first nine months from conception are not necessarily blissful, and Janov's findings do not confirm Freud's birth trauma theory. Please would you speak a little more about this?
Question 5
Recently the West has devised many techniques to return to the source. These techniques all seem to have one thing in common: they admit that an individual cannot authentically return to these traumatic experiences by himself. The mind is too devious, the ego too complex, so analysis has been invented: primal therapy, Fisher-Hoffman, and the karma-cleaning tools of Arica, to name a few. The basic premise seems to be that the individual will not pursue this journey alone; the other is needed -- the dynamics of a group, or an objective guide. Is it necessary to become so self conscious about the past? Does this not resolve itself as one goes deeper into meditation?
Question 6
Can prati-prasav, the process of going backwards, be that of unlearning instead of reliving?
Question 7
According to Patanjali, if good and bad are dream-like, then how can karmas exist?
