So the first thing: you should not be angry because anger is not understanding. You should be very understanding – whatever has happened, has happened. You should be a scientific, impartial, objective observer, so that you can know why it happened, and find ways that it is not repeated again.
And the second part of your question continues,…and a man of your light, height and far deeper understanding in every way is permitted only to breathe this stinking, polluted air, which does not at all contribute to your physical health. This too is part of the whole programming of the mind of the past.
For almost two years the Indian government has been denying that they are preventing sannyasins to reach to me. But just the other day in San Francisco, the Indian consul in a press interview said clearly: “Osho is a criminal and not only a personal criminal, but a corporate criminal, and he should not be allowed anywhere. In India we have to accept him, but we are making every effort that people from all over the world who are interested in him and love him, should not reach to him.”
This is the first time that they have at least accepted that they have been preventing sannyasins from coming to India. They have sent many sannyasins back from Indian airports to their homes. Sannyasins had to learn to tell lies that they are not sannyasins, “Who is Osho? Have we to go to him? We have come to see the Himalayas, the Taj Mahal…We have never heard…!”
And I knew this was going to happen. That’s why I told you to drop the outer symbols of sannyas completely. Still, they interrogate for hours, even when a person is saying, “I have not come for Osho. I don’t know him and why should I go to Pune? What is there?” But politicians are suspicious people. They were interrogating in such a way that somehow they could get the idea that the man was going to Pune.
Being unsuccessful in this they started asking, “Have you come to India to learn meditation?” Now meditation has become synonymous with me. Innocent sannyasins were not aware that “meditation” – and they are finished! They have to go back from the airport – they cannot enter the country.
We have reported this to the government, and the government denied it saying, “We are not doing anything. Why should we prevent people?”
And this man from San Francisco…I remember him, because he came to see me. After twelve days, when the trial was over and I was released from the jail he asked me, “Rajiv is very much concerned about your health and well-being. In what way can we be of help to you?”
I said, “You have come a little late – and perhaps consideredly. I am out of jail, now what can you do? You can force me into jail again – that is the only help that is left.”
He said, “We have been watching.”
