A Totally New Kind of Man

Talk #26 of the Series, The Last Testament, Vol.1

This is a fascinating recording of an interview with Osho, while at the commune in the USA, answering questions for the first time from the world’s press.

In this interview: Steve Davis, KGO TV, San Francisco, California, United States

I was here once before for several days, less than a year ago.
May I urge you please, wherever possible, to recall that television is a remorseless medium as far as cutting things short is concerned. So when a thought can be done in a brief manner, it's I think to all of our benefit. And if it can't, it can't. I have several questions that I have written down in advance and haven't the foggiest notion if we will ever get to any of them except the first one. It may well be that the tangent will be more interesting than any I have laid out in advance. But I have those and I may check them from time to time.

Osho continues:

What would you have a reporter learn here?

"One thing and only one thing: that this is the alternative to your world. Your world is on the verge of death. The politicians have brought nuclear weapons to create the funeral of the whole of humanity. And the religious leaders, insisting on celibacy, have brought humanity to the ultimate disease – AIDS. The politicians and the priests both are bent upon destroying the world.

"We are creating a totally new kind of man, with new values. And these communes are around the world now – one million sannyasins – and we provide the alternative to your mad world."

Is that the thrust of the work here?


How is that to be accomplished?

"First, the sannyasin's only requirement is to be a meditator. And meditation means going into yourself, to the deepest core of your being, where absolute silence, serenity, peace, bliss are experienced. And once a person experiences those values, then all ambitions about becoming a president of a country, or the prime minister, or becoming famous, a celebrity – all ambitions disappear. And if we can create millions of people who have no ambitions, that is the only way to prevent war. War is the culmination of ambition.

"And the peaceful man, the silent man, who has touched his own source of being, is no longer Christian, no longer Hindu, no longer Mohammedan, no longer Buddhist, no longer American, no longer Russian, no longer German, no longer Italian. He is simply a human being, and the whole earth is his home. If we can destroy those ugly lines on the map which divide humanity and if we can destroy all those ugly religions which have divided humanity, there is no reason for war: one thing.

"Second: if we can create such serenity and joy in people's lives, all their perversions – homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, group sexuality – which have all culminated finally into AIDS, will disappear, because we are creating a man who is so contented that he needs no one to fulfill him. Alone, he is enough."
