Fifty percent of India – that means four hundred million people – are not getting two times food, only one time at the most.
I agree with you, but you said also the other night that you were destroying Rajneeshism as a religion…
…Because you didn’t want a system of beliefs, but you also wanted no leaders or no high priestesses telling sannyasins what a religion was after you were gone.
If the commune does not reproduce it’ll be like the Shaker societies of New England that had no children and vanished in fifty years.
There is no harm. If the commune disappears, there is no harm. Shakers disappearing in England has done no harm.
Any harm that has been done is by those who have not disappeared! If the pope and six-hundred-million Catholics have also disappeared, it would have been a tremendous relief.
You have said that you wanted to return the town of Antelope to its original residents…
…If they would buy back the property. They told me that they favor a disincorporation because they fear that even if the town changes its name back to Antelope the sannyasins will outnumber them and will still control the town government.
First think of one thing: if they are incapable of purchasing the properties, then certainly the sannyasins will outnumber them. And it is a democracy.
