Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Peace of mind can be gained by withdrawal from the world, by stilling the vortices of the mind. But how much inner peace is appropriate in a world that contains Attica, Vietnam, Johannesburg, Biafra, Pakistan and Sub-Sahara Africa?
Question 2
Does healthy self-awareness necessarily involve a religious commitment?
Question 3
Osho, I am a newcomer here, and I was shocked when I heard you using words like 'bastard' etcetera. I cannot believe a saint using such words. Can you say something about it?
Question 4
Beloved Osho: came to Poona a while ago, got into Rajneesh, took sannyas, turned orange, did a few groups, started working in the ashram, dropped some old games -- dope and all that stuff -- fell in love, getting higher every day...
But what about the work? Yes, the real thing! You know? Every master says it: find your path, and work on the self. Some also call it 'initiation'. So far, haven't got a clue what that means.
Question 5
What exactly is the most fundamental disease of humankind according to Zen?
Question 6
Osho, what are you doing here exactly?
