Now, today I will corrupt this Chinaman. Remove your Chinacap and be corrupt!
(The Chinaman removes his cap and reveals a human being.)
Right! There is no need to be unnecessarily discriminated.
Princess Turiya will be going in a few days to Germany. I would like her to go to this magazine’s office, Bunte, and tell the publisher or the owner that “When you send people to Pune, at least send intelligent people – because that is a totally different world, absolutely corrupted, and if you send old goats, they will be corrupted very soon. They don’t even bother to see whether this is too old a goat, so leave it. Young or old, they don’t make any distinction. Send very intelligent people.”
It is not that intelligent journalists from all over the world have not come here. But when – also from Germany – another experienced journalist came here, he got corrupted. He was too intelligent, he could see the point. He became a sannyasin. He is here somewhere…and when he went back, his magazine simply refused – that’s why I had warned them yesterday – because he wrote a beautiful article saying that “Something new is happening. People of all religions and races are meeting in one place, working out how to be silent, making every effort to reach to their own innermost being. There is no fight, no crime. The whole commune can absolutely be called a love commune.”
He wrote a beautiful article, and the magazine told him, “You have been hypnotized.” He said, “I am your most experienced journalist, and you think I can be hypnotized? Then I am ready – you can come with me and I will show you.” But nobody was ready to come because then he will be hypnotized too! They refused to publish his article. They said, “Unless you make a few amendments…and the amendments will be suggested by us.” The name of the sannyasin is Satyananda.
He said, “You have not even been there, and you will suggest to me? You will make suggestions to be included in the article? I have been there, and you will tell me a few things should be removed…Then it is better that you write the article, because you are not hypnotized; naturally your article will be right.”
They fired him, and they wrote something fictitious on their own. When Satyananda came back, I told him, “It was bound to happen. You should have inserted something negative against me; nothing hurts me. You should have told some fictitious stories, allegations, because I don’t care about what other people think. And they would have published your article, they would have praised it and they would have thought that you were really great that you came out of that commune without being hypnotized. But you did not listen to me.”
