Talk #1 of the Series, Communism and Zen Fire, Zen Wind


"There is a group of Soviet comrades present here today. They have a few very beautiful and simple questions. First I am going to answer them.

You have dedicated a book to Gorbachev. Since you are against politicians, is this a contradiction?

"Not at all, because Gorbachev is not a politician. His every act proves that he is a man in politics but not a politician. My dedication to Gorbachev and the academic scientist Sakharov was for this simple reason, that he is not a politician and is immensely interested in having peace in the world. He is for friendship in the world, not for war.

"The politician's mind is always concerned with war. Adolf Hitler in his autobiography, My Struggle, says that if a politician wants to remain in politics he has to continue creating enemies."

Osho continues:
"If there are no real enemies, create fictions that somebody is going to attack you, that you are surrounded by enemies. Only that will keep you in power – not peace.

"And it is a factual thing to know; your whole history is filled with heroes who were nothing but warmongers, people who massacred millions of people. Your history does not consist of a single name who was a peacemaker.

"I have dedicated my book with deep love to Gorbachev and Sakharov because they are both working for world peace. That is not the way of the politician, that is the way of a humanitarian. That is the way of one who loves humanity, who loves this beautiful planet and wants to save it at any cost. And all his actions prove what I am saying.

"Their second question is:
As a religious leader, you are above human hurts, but do you criticize America and Christianity so much because you feel hurt?
"In the first place I am not a religious leader. I am a religious man. A leader is fundamentally a politician. Whether or not his politics is hidden behind religion does not matter; the very word leader comes from politics.

"I don't have any followers here; these are all my friends. So please don't call me a religious leader – I am just religious.

"Secondly, I am not criticizing America and Christianity because they have tried to destroy my body. That does not matter to me. It does not hurt me, because I know something which is indestructible; no poison, no bombs, no nuclear weapons can destroy it. My being, my spirituality is beyond any destruction. It is eternal and immortal. So it is not a question of hurting me.

"My criticism of America and Christianity has nothing to do with my personal attitude. I am against all religions, not only Christianity. I am against God because I am against all fictions. I am against hell and against heaven because I don't want to create a schizophrenia in humanity. I don't want human beings to live in fear of hell and greed for heaven.

"And I don't want people to have any kind of belief system."
