notes
synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Ronald Conway
Osho, can you throw some light on the feeling of nostalgia? Freud called it regressive and a seeking of the womb. This does not satisfy me.
Sometimes the perfume of a flower, sounds, a place or an incident from childhood, can evoke a few seconds of feeling and yearning that are so sad and so sweet, it can choke me with its intensity.
My childhood was not so happy, nor is the womb so appealing that mere sentimentality for 'the old days' can explain it.
Could you help with some indications?
Question 2 from Almasto
Osho, allow me to ask a few more esoteric questions. Please don't laugh at them. It is a question of life and death to me!
The first question: How many Scotsmen does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Second: How many Englishmen does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Third: How many Germans does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Fourth: How many Frenchmen does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Fifth: How many nuns does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Sixth: How many astronauts does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Seventh: How many Russians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Eighth: How many drunks does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Ninth: How many Morarji Desais does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Tenth: How many people does it take to screw in an Indian light bulb?
Eleventh: How many Gautam Buddhas does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Twelfth: How many niggers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Thirteenth: How many Oshos does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Question 3 from Neeraj
Osho, why are the Indians going absolutely mad against you?
