I never plan for the future, but I have so many friends in Holland that I cannot avoid visiting it for long.
Remember our interview, August last year, Osho? This interview had very high ratings, only shown when disaster films are seen on television. Are you a kind of a disaster?
I am! I am a disaster to all the traditions, to all the religions, to all the political ideologies, to all the national boundaries, to everything that belongs to the past. I want man to be discontinuous with the past. The past has been insane.
So I am a disaster for all those who have vested interests in the past.
Your last words in our TV interview in August, were, “The fruit is ripe.” Since then you were arrested, Sheela left, Rajneeshpuram closed down, all the Rolls Royces were sold, and you traveled the world without finding peace. What kind of fruit were you talking about?
Whenever a fruit is ripe, it falls down!
Shouldn’t you pick the fruit from the trees, instead of picking it up from the ground?
I have taken those fruits and I have been going round the world distributing them. I am not going around the world in search of peace. Peace I have got. I’m going around the world to give to those who need it.
What are your future plans?
You don’t have future plans?
