"One friend has asked, 'If Ronald Reagan and Mother Teresa both fall from a one hundred story building, who will reach to the earth first?'

"In the first place, who cares?

"In the second place, just by the way, it is good news; the sooner it happens, the better."

Osho continues:
"The Republican Party of India and the Dalit organization – both are organizations of the neo-Buddhists – have made a similar resolution to the government of India, that action should be taken against me because I have been comparing myself with Buddha.

"In the first place, I have never compared myself with Buddha. I have always said definitively that he is life-negative, and I am absolutely life-affirmative. There is no possibility of any comparison.

"He is a bullock cart, and you want it to be compared with my Rolls Royce? Of course, the basic principle of a bullock cart is the same – the four wheels – but still you cannot compare it with a Rolls Royce.

"These organizations have told the government that their religious feelings are very much hurt.

"In the first place, if you understand religionit is in the transcendence of thoughts and feelings. There are no religious feelings at all! Only idiots have religious feelings.

"I have loved Buddha, just as I would have loved the inventor of a bullock cart; it was a great revolution. Buddha is the beginning of a great revolution, but only the beginning, not the end. Looking backwards, I can see he managed a little bit to go against the tradition, but not wholeheartedly.

"I am absolutely against the past.

"Although Buddha tried in every waybut he was at the beginning point; you could not expect him to create the whole science of transcendence. He has my respect, my love – but I cannot tolerate to be compared with Gautam Buddha!

"In fact, the government has to take action against these two organizations.

"Gautam Buddha is an escapist, and it is Gautam Buddha who is responsible for the poverty of this country. If so many thousands of people renounce the world, they become parasites on the society.

"I don't want you to renounce the world. My whole teaching is: Rejoice in the world. What comparison can there be between me and Gautam Buddha?

"Gautam Buddha is twenty-five centuries behind me. And as far as the allegation is concerned, that I have compared myself, it is an absolute lie!

"These organizations should understand that if even a little bit of Buddha's experience had been their experience, then this revengeful resolution asking the government to take action against me does not show compassion, does not show meditation.

"I want the government not to take any action against these two organizations. I, with all my friends, forgive them. The blind need forgiveness, the ignorant need compassion.

"One thing should be understood definitively: I am a buddha in my own self – and the word buddha is not the monopoly of anybody. It simply means the awakened one. It was not Gautam Buddha's name; his name was Gautama Siddhartha. When he became awakened, those who understood his enlightenment started calling him Gautam Buddha.

"But the word buddha, according to Gautam Buddha too, is simply inherent in every human being, and not only in every human being, but every living being."
