Well, isn’t there something about truth that’s universal and timeless?
There is something which is universal. There is something which is similar, but the more emphatic thing is its uniqueness.
Now, let me say it in this way: the uniqueness of truth is universal so whenever one realizes it, it is unique, his own – yet universal because it is always unique and always fresh.
So you don’t see anything valid in spiritual lineages, then, of people studying with master-disciple relationships?
There is nothing which can be given.
But there can be something that can be emulated.
No. All that can be given, transpired, emanated, will be only very superficial and psychological. It will not be spiritual.
Well then what about your students, if they became enlightened? Wouldn’t that have some connection with you?
Some gratitude, not any relationship. Gratitude is not a relationship.
But wouldn’t you have had something to do with that as an instigator or a creator of situation?
I have nothing to do with it.
Well then why do you have Rajneeshpuram?
I enjoy it. To make the effort to create the situations in which people can become afire.
