Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
What is your path, the path that you reveal to us?
Question 2
Since coming to you, living a meditative life has become an easier and more natural phenomenon. However, I have practically given up all hope for enlightenment are these tendencies contradictory?
Question 3
Does the universe love me?
Question 4
Is it possible to climb on to higher stages while one is suppressing or excluding parts of his being by outside conditions and illusions?
Question 5
For Zen it is: "Eat when you are hungry and drink when you are thirsty." For Patanjali it is: "Regularity -- niyam." How to reconcile spontaneity and regularity?
Question 6
I want to propagate against you. Would you please bless me?
Question 7 from Ma Anand Prem
You recently said that only an enlightened one can love. At other times you also said that unless one loves one cannot become enlightened. From which door to enter?
Question 8
These days the Poona press is making much propaganda against you, your ashram, and your disciples. This has created much misunderstanding in the minds of the common man. How should a seeker who has to live amongst these people deal with the situation?
Question 9
Your claim not to condemn seems contradicted by your criticisms of Sai Baba, Krishnamurti, and "American gurus."
Question 10
A taoist master has explained some point in terms of the Tao. His listeners asked him how he had come to find the Tao in view of the fact that he had never had a teacher. "I got it," he said, "from books." Is this possible?
Question 11
If satsang, being in the presence of an enlightened being, one who is now liberated, is so important, why do we only spend an hour and a half a day with each other?
Question 12
Yesterday morning you referred to the eight stages of yogic achievement and emphasized that you move from number one to number eight, in that order. Is it not possible, in individual cases, that an individual could reach one or the other states first and then move in his or her own order to achieve all eight of them?
Question 13
How is it that great masters like Chogyam Trungpa get so drunk on occasional festivities that they have to be carried home? Can the use of alcohol for enjoyment disturb a certain awareness of seekers?
