... uncorrupt society? To ask a person to be moral in this immoral situation is to ask something absurd. An individual cannot be moral in an immoral society. If he tries to be moral, his morality will only make him egoistic and ego is as immoral and corrupt as anything else. This situation is a human creation. We have created a society with a mad rush for wealth, power, politics; we go on supporting it, and...

...: N.A. Length: N.A. DOES GOD EXIST? HOW CAN THERE BE SO MUCH EVIL AND CORRUPTION IN THE WORLD IF GOD EXISTS? God is a mythical word, a mumbo-jumbo word that is the invention of the priesthood. Actually, to ask whether God exists is absurd. For those who know, God is existence, or existence is God. Things exist, not God. A chair exists because a chair can go into nonexistence. To say that the chair exists is...

... defined morality is needed; otherwise you will not be able to live. But these moralities, these conceptions of good and bad, are human expediencies. When you ask how there can be corruption if God exists, remember: God is not involved at all. There are reasons for corruption, but God is not responsible, the total is not responsible. If responsibility is to be put anywhere, it is to be put on us. We have...

... created a society in which corruption has become necessary because its very base is corrupt. Unless you change the very foundation of society there is bound to be corruption; there has always been corruption. Forms have changed, but the corruption has remained because we have not yet created a society in which corruption is impossible. This situation is our creation; God is not involved in it at all. It...

.... God has never been asked about it, he is not a party to it. In the same way you can ask why there is corruption, but you cannot make any reference to God. To ask why there is corruption is a pertinent question. But to talk about God in reference to corruption is impertinent. Our society has been made by us - we are the architects of it. And because the foundation of it is wrong, because the base...

... upon which we have built all of society's structures is not scientific, it is bound to be corrupt. It is a human problem. We can change it or we can prolong it - it depends on us. For example, our whole education is ambition-oriented. Our whole society is ambitious and an ambitious society can never be anything but corrupt. If you create ambition in everyone, not everyone will be able to fulfill it...

.... You may say that anyone can be president, but only one person can be president at any one time. When you teach that everyone can be president, ambition is created: if everyone can be president then why shouldn't you be? But since only one person can be president, a mad rush begins. Every means will be used - even evil means will be used. Ambition corrupts, the ambitious mind is bound to be corrupt...

.... Ambition is the seed of insanity. Yet our whole education is ambition-oriented. Your father says, "Become someone!" and the fever is created - you become diseased. Only one person can be president, and thousands of people who will be unsuccessful are aflame with the same ambition. Then you cannot be sane - you become insane. Because so much tension is created you become corrupt: you will use...

... any means to achieve your goal. It is infectious. If you see that someone else is using corrupt means you know that if you don't use them you will be left behind. So you have to use equally corrupt means. Then someone else sees you being unscrupulous, so he has to be unscrupulous. It becomes a question of survival. Nothing else is possible within this framework, this structure. If you look to the...

... very roots of society you will see that corruption is a natural outgrowth of our conditioning, our education, our cultivation. The complexity of our social structure is such that those who succeed can hide their corruption. Corruption is seen only when someone fails. If you succeed no one will know that you have been corrupt; success will hide everything. You have only to succeed and you will become...

... sees that there is no qualitative difference between the two, that it is only a quantitative difference. No one will call Alexander the Great a great thief because the measure of your goodness is success: the more successful you are, the more good. Means are only questioned if you are a failure; then you will be called both corrupt and a fool. If this is the attitude, how is it possible to create an...

... then we ask why there is corruption. Where there is ambition, corruption will be the logical consequence. You cannot check corruption unless the whole basic structure that encourages ambition is destroyed. Ambition even becomes manifest around a so-called saint. He will incite you to ambition in terms of comparison; he will say, "Become better than others. Be good so that you will go to heaven...

... flowering of real goodness only comes when there is no comparison. Comparison is the barrier because comparison creates ego, it creates violence. The moment you say, "I am more humble than you," you have become violent. You have used a subtle, cunning method that thrusts a knife into the other; you have killed him. The weapon is lethal - and much more subtle than political or capitalist weapons...

.... If you say, "I am better than others, I am more saintly than others," then the object may be different, but you will be on the same ambitious track. Criminals and sinners are not the only ones who are corrupt; the so-called good people, the "saints," are also corrupt - in a more subtle way. Our whole society is corrupt. It creates sinners with ambition and saints with ambition...
... Available: N.A. Video Available: N.A. Length: N.A. Question 1: BELOVED OSHO, PRIME MINISTER RAJIV GANDHI IS GOING TO HOLD A NATIONAL DEBATE ON THE NEED FOR SEPARATING POLITICS FROM RELIGION. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR VISION ON THIS QUESTION. Anand Maitreya, politics is mundane -- the politicians are the servants of the people. Religion is sacred -- it is the guide for people's spiritual growth. Certainly...

..., politics is the lowest as far as values are concerned, and religion the highest as far as values are concerned. They are separate. Rajiv Gandhi wants religion not to interfere with politics; I want politics not to interfere with religion. The higher has every right to interfere, but the lower has no right. Religion has been raising human consciousness for centuries. Whatever man is now, whatever little...

... consciousness he has, the whole credit goes to religion. Politics has been a curse, a calamity; and whatever is ugly in humanity, politics is responsible for. But the problem is that politics has power; religion has only love, peace and the experience of the divine. Politics can easily interfere with religion; and it has been interfering all along, to such an extent that it has destroyed many religious values...

... which are absolutely necessary for the survival of humanity and life on this earth. Religion has no mundane power like nuclear weapons and atom bombs and guns; its dimension is totally different. Religion is not a will to power; religion is a search for truth, for God. And the very search makes the religious man humble, simple, innocent. Politics has all the destructive weapons -- religion is...

... absolutely vulnerable. Politics has no heart -- religion is pure heart. It is just like a beautiful roseflower: its beauty, its poetry, its dance makes life worth living, gives life meaning and significance. Politics is like a stone, dead, but the stone can destroy the flower and the flower has no defense. Politics is aggressive. Rajiv Gandhi is putting things upside down. He wants religion not to...

... interfere with politics. Politics should have the whole monopoly to enslave humanity, to reduce men to slaves, to destroy their freedom, to destroy their consciousness; to convert them into robots so that the politicians can enjoy the power and the domination. Religion is the only problem for the politicians. It is beyond their reach and beyond their understanding. Religion is the only area where politics...

... should not interfere at all, because religion is the only hope. Only fools choose to be somebody Politics, for centuries, has been just killing, destroying people -- the whole history of politics is the history of criminals, murderers. In three thousand years, politicians have created five thousand wars. It seems that inside the politician, the barbarous instinct is very powerful; its only joy is to...

... destroy, to dominate. Religion creates a problem for it, because religion has given the world its highest peaks of consciousness -- a Gautam Buddha, a Jesus, a Chuang Tzu, a Nanak, a Kabir. These are the very salt of the earth. What has politics given to the world? Genghis Khan? Tamerlane? Nadir Shah? Alexander? Napoleon? Ivan the Terrible? Josef Stalin? Adolf Hitler? Benito Mussolini? Mao Tse-tung...

... seven times, or to destroy seven earths. A man dies only once; there is no need to accumulate so much destructive power. The whole of politics depends on lies. Just the other day -- I could not believe that any man who is sane can make such a statement -- Ronald Reagan made a statement. He was denying before the Senate, continually, that any weapons were being given to a few countries. And now...

... of blissfulness, of godliness? Still, they want religion not to be allowed to interfere with politics. What about them? They should be allowed to interfere with religion? Is the lower going to dominate the higher? Is the mundane going to dominate the sacred? That will be the ultimate misfortune for humanity. As far as I can see, all politicians should be meditators, should know something of the...

.... Religion has to interfere with the politicians. Without religion interfering with the politicians... the politicians are blind, they don't have eyes, they are deaf; they don't have a silent mind to listen to the truth. But why is Rajiv Gandhi concerned that religion and politics should be separated? Politics is a small thing. Religion is man's whole evolution. Politics should be only a minor part of the...

... is an ugly game. It is one of the duties of religious people to keep themselves above politics and lead the people towards creative values, towards more humanity. In fact, if religions understand one thing -- that the whole of humanity is one, and there is no need for any nations -- all these pygmy politicians will disappear. But the strangest thing is that politicians go on saying that religion...

... and politics should be separate. Why? Why should truth be separate from politics? And why should love be separate from politics? Why should meditative consciousness be separate from politics? Why should a prayerful heart be separate from politics? Yes, I understand that it should be separate in the sense that it is higher. And the politician is in need of psychological treatment and spiritual...

... transform you. Politics is functional; it is utilitarian. But it has no way of transforming man into higher consciousness. And, particularly in reference to India, it has been such an ugly situation. It hurts. Mahatma Gandhi used to say, before freedom, that the first president of India would be a woman -- and not only a woman, but she would be a sudra, from the lowest untouchables. But as freedom came...

... Hindus because everybody else is in a minority. Nobody looks at gandhi's politics: he was using even religion for ugly ends. Only fools choose to be somebody Doctor Ambedkar wanted a separate vote for the untouchables, and I am in absolute agreement with him for the simple reason that for five thousand years these people have been oppressed, exploited; their whole dignity as human beings had been...

... break his fast. This is using religion in the service of politics. No religious man can do that. Only fools choose to be somebody The idea of India remaining whole and one was also nothing but politics being used in the service of Hindus, so that Mohammedans or Christians or Jainas or Sikhs will never be able to be in power. Hindus will remain in power -- they are in the majority. Jinnah, the man who...

... created Pakistan, was not a religious man at all; but he also used religion. He created the movement for Mohammedans to have a separate country; otherwise they could not be in power, ever. Suddenly he became a great Mohammedan, a great religious man. And in the name of religion, it was all politics: neither Mahatma Gandhi was religious nor Muhammadali Jinnah was religious. But both wanted power. Since...

... trivial matters of politics. So I agree with this point: religion and politics should remain separate. The distance is big. Religion is a star in the sky and the politicians are creatures crawling on the earth. They are separate; there is no question but that they should be separate. But politicians should remember that they are functioning in mundane matters. And that is not the true goal of humanity...

.... Religious people are making every effort to raise humanity -- its consciousness, its love, its compassion -- to a point where wars become impossible, where politicians cannot deceive people, where their lies and their promises can be exposed. This is not interfering with politics Only fools choose to be somebody -- this is simply protecting the people from the exploitation of politicians. The separation...

... is already there. Who has given Rajiv Gandhi the idea that religion and politics are not separate? Politics is something that belongs to the gutters. Religion belongs to the open, clean sky -- just like a bird on the wing, flying across the sun to reach to the very center of existence. Certainly religious people cannot be participants in politics; but politicians should learn to be humble -- their...

... power should not make them blind. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely; and all politicians are corrupted by their power. And what power do they have? They can kill you -- their power is the power of a butcher; nothing glorious, respectable. The religious man has a totally different quality of power. It is in his presence; it is in his great love and reverence for life; it is in his...

... gratitude to existence. We should not forget that the lower should remain within its own limits. And the wise people of the country should be asked to address the parliament as often as possible on problems which politicians cannot solve -- don't have even the brains to solve. But Rajiv Gandhi's intentions are totally different. He wants politics to be the only power dominating everybody, religion...

... a serious place. It is for the gamblers, for the drunkards, for all kinds of good people who can relax and who can laugh and who can dance, and who don't care what the world thinks about them. At the most they will think you are mad -- so what? Madness is better than politics. You are not going to harm anybody. And mad people are always joyous, not worrying about anything in the world. A man with a poodle...

...: N.A. Short Title: N.A. Audio Available: N.A. Video Available: N.A. Length: N.A. Question 1: OSHO, WOULD YOU LIKE TO THROW SOME LIGHT ON POLITICS, ACCORDING TO THE THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS? THE world of politics is basically of the instinctive level. It belongs to the law of the jungle: Might is right. And the people who get interested in politics are the most mediocre. Politics needs no...

... other qualifications except one - that is, a deep feeling of inferiority. Politics can be reduced almost into a mathematical maxim: Politics means will-to-power. Friedrich Nietzsche has even written a book, WILL TO POWER. It is very significant because will- to-power expresses itself in many ways. So you have to understand by politics not only the politics that is known by the name: wherever somebody...

... is trying a power number, it is politics. It does not matter whether it relates to the state, the government, and matters like that.... To me, the word politics is much more comprehensive than is generally understood. Man has been trying throughout history a political strategy over women - that she is lower than him. And he has convinced the woman herself. And there were reasons that the woman was...

... strong materials - he pops off anytime. But why has it been insisted continually that the woman is inferior? It is politics. It is a power game. If you cannot become the president of a country - it is not easy because there is so much competition. You cannot become a messiah because it is not so easy; the moment you think of becoming a messiah, crucifixion comes to the eye. Just the other day I saw an...

.... The husband trying to be superior to the wife - it is politics. The wife trying to be superior to the husband... because the wife simply cannot accept the idea.... Even though for millions of years she has been conditioned, she finds ways to sabotage it. That's the whole reason why the wife goes on nagging, throws tantrums, starts crying over any small matter, makes a fuss over anything - things...

... that you could not even have imagined would create a fuss. Why does all this happen? This is her feminine way to sabotage your political strategy: "You think you are superior? Go on thinking you are superior, and I will show you who is superior." And every husband knows who is superior; still he goes on trying to be superior. At least outside the house he straightens up, makes his I tie...

... happening. The father goes out almost like a lion, and when he comes home he is just a mouse. Every husband is henpecked. There is no other category of husbands. But why? Why has this ugly situation arisen? There is a male form of politics, there is a female form of politics - but both are trying to be on top of each other. In every other area, for example in university... the lecturer wants to be the...

.... And this is happening all around, everywhere. So to me politics means an effort to prove yourself superior. But why? - because you feel, deep down, inferior. And the man of instinct is bound to feel inferior - he is inferior. It is not an inferiority complex; it is a fact, a reality - he is inferior. To live the life of instinct is to live at the lowest possible level of life. If you understand the...

... to discuss things with me. I told him many times, "You should discuss with people who are capable of understanding politics. I don't know politics." He said, "That's why I discuss with you - because I cannot say these things to anybody else. I can only say them to you because you will not tell them to anybody - in fact, you won't be able to figure out what the problem is. But just...

... is continuously trying in every possible way to be somebody higher, special, superior - but this is all politics. And according to me only the mediocre people are interested. The intelligent people have something more important to do. Intelligence cannot waste itself in struggling with third class, ugly politics, dirty politics. Only the third class people become presidents, prime ministers. An...

... intelligent person is not going to be distracted by such a desert which leads nowhere, not even to an oasis. So on the instinctive level politics is just, Might is right - the law of the jungle. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mussolini, Bonaparte, Alexander, Tamerlane - all these people are more like wild wolves than human beings. If we want a real humanity in the world we should cross out these people...

... the story; you go and kill somebody and all the newspapers are full of it. And what is your history about except these people who have been a nuisance, who have left wounds on human consciousness? This you call history?" I said, "If this is history then it is not for me, because I have a different dimension of history. What you are teaching is really the history of politics. You should...

... change the name of your subject. This is not history, it is political history. And what I am talking to you about is the history of human intelligence and ultimately the history of human enlightenment." He was simply in shock. He just told the class, "Now I am not in a position to say anything. First I have to see the principal about this boy." I said, "There is no need to see the...

... first thing they said was, "The greatest crime that you have been committing is that you are corrupting the minds of the youth." Socrates said, "That's true, but it is not a crime. And what you call corruption I call creation. You have corrupted those peoples' minds; now I have to destroy that corruption. And if you are right then why don't you open a school, an academy, just as I have...

... corrupted by me.... And what do you mean by corruption?" They said, "You teach that there is no God or gods." He said, "Yes - because there is no God, no gods. What can I do about it? It is not my responsibility. If God does not exist, are you corrupting the mind of youth or am I corrupting the mind of youth? I am simply telling the truth. Do you think truth can corrupt the minds of...

...." The question is: anybody can prove right; howsoever powerful you are does not matter. The question has to be decided by logic, by reason - in the lab, with experiments and experience. So on the second level of consciousness politics is a totally different matter. India has been for two thousand years in slavery - for many reasons, but one of the reasons and the most fundamental reason is that...

... all India's intelligent people turned their back on politics of the lowest, the third class, the instinctive level. All intelligent people were, simply not interested in politics or power. Their whole interest was to decide what is true, what is the meaning of life. Why are we here? At the time of Gautam Buddha, perhaps around the whole world, the second level of consciousness came to its highest...

..., Mandan Mishra immediately stood up, touched the feet of Shankara and asked to be initiated. There is no question of fight. It is a human, far superior world of intelligence. But still somewhere in the name of truth a little politics is lurking behind. Otherwise, what is the need even to challenge this man? If you know the truth, enjoy it! What is the point of going around the whole country defeating...

... people? If you know the truth, people will come to you. There is some very subtle politics in it. You can call it philosophical - religious politics but it is still politics - very refined. Only on the third level, when intuition starts functioning, is there no fight at all. Buddha never went to anybody to conquer them, Mahavira never went to anybody to conquer them, Lao Tzu never went to anybody to...

...;Two years' complete silence and then you can ask any question." And two years' silence is enough, more than enough. After two years they have even forgotten their own names, they have forgotten all challenge, all idea of victory. They have tasted the man. They have tasted his truth. So on the intuitive level there is no politics at all. In a better world the people of intuition will be the...

... guide lights for those who can at least understand them intellectually. And the intellectual politicians - professors of politics, the intelligentsia, theoreticians - they will be the guide for the instinctive politicians. Only this way can the world be at ease, live at ease. The light should come from the highest level. It will have to be passed through the second category because only then may the...

... dimensions without any bridge. In the middle, the intellectual can be of immense help. The universities, the colleges, the schools should not only teach political science - it is such a stupid idea to teach political science! Teach political science but also teach political art, because science is of no use; you have to teach practical politics. And those professors in the universities should prepare...

... politicians, give them certain qualities. Then the people who are ruling now all over the world will be nowhere at all. Then you will find rulers well-trained, cultured, knowing the art and the science of politics, and always ready to go to the professors, to the scholars. And slowly it may be possible that they can approach the highest level of meritocracy; the intuitive people. If this is possible then we...
.... Millions of opportunities are there to make your body alive again. And only you can do it. Society has done its work of corruption, you will have to undo it. And once you start hearing, seeing, touching, smelling, then you smell the reality. The second layer is of conditioning: social, political, religious, ideological - belief systems. Belief systems make you non-communicative. If you are a Hindu and...

... in one way: he cannot cry. And the woman is corrupted in another way: she starts crying and uses crying as a strategy to dominate. Crying becomes political - and when your tears are political they lose beauty, they are ugly. This second conditioning is one of the most difficult things to get rid of, it is very complex. You have a certain political ideology, a certain religious ideology and...

... EXCEPTIONS. BUT IF THERE WERE ENOUGH EXCEPTIONS TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO THE WORLD, WE WOULD NOT BY NOW HAVE ANY MULLA FIROZES LEFT.' MAN'S being is very simple, but his personality is not. The personality is very complex. The personality is like an onion - there are many layers of conditioning, corruption, poisoning. Hidden behind many layers - what Sufis call filters - is man's simple being. But that...

... simple being is behind so many filters that you cannot see it. And hidden behind these many filters, you cannot see the world either - because whatsoever reaches you is corrupted by the filters before it reaches you. Nothing ever reaches you as it is; you go on missing it. There are many interpreters in between. You see something. First your eyes and your senses falsify. Then your ideology, your...

... BAKA, individuality, you don't meet God, you are still there. Very little is left of you, but there is still just a thin line - even that has to disappear in FANA. Then you enter God. Start from the other end. Start peeling the onion. The first layer is made of corrupted physical senses. Never for a single moment think that your physical senses are as they should be - they are not. They have been...

... smell so deeply as a dog or as a horse? The horse can smell for miles. The dog has an immense memory of smells. Man has no memory. Something is blocking the nose. Those who have been working deep into these layers say that it is because of the repression of sex that smell is lost. Physically man is as sensitive as any other animal, but psychologically his nose has been corrupted. Smell is one of the...

... wind - and the deer is alert. You would not have noticed it at all. And great music surrounds life, subtle music surrounds life, but we are absolutely unaware of it. There is great rhythm - but to feel it you will need more alert ears, more alert eyes, a more alert touch. So the first layer is of corrupted physical senses. We see only what we want to see. Our whole body mechanism is poisoned. Our...

... they are dying. One of the reasons is repression, but only one. They are losing the social consciousness; they are losing the conditioning. This first layer of corrupted senses is disappearing; death is moving in. And they are becoming small children again. Small children play with their genital organs; they have not yet been corrupted. They enjoy their bodies, they love their bodies. They are...

... playful about it, it is fun. Now the man is no longer old; he is becoming younger again. Death is taking the layer away - that is one thing. Another thing is that when a man dies, for a single moment all his senses become totally alive as they would have been if they had not been corrupted. It is like a flame before a lamp goes out - the flame burns brightly, with intensity, for a single second. Exactly...

... corrupted. We have not been allowed to be natural - -hence man has lost dignity, innocence, grace, elegance. This is the first layer. And because of all these repressions the body has become non-orgasmic. There is no joy - it has happened both to man and woman, in almost the same way, but man has gone deeper into corruption than woman - because man is perfectionistic, neurotically perfectionistic. Once he...

... gets an idea, he tries to go to the very extreme of it. Women are more practical, less perfectionistic, less neurotic, more earthly, more balanced, less intellectual, more intuitive. They have not gone to the very end. It is good that women have not become as neurotic as men - that's why they still retain some dignity, some grace, some roundness of being, some poetry. But both have been corrupted by...

... body alive, sensitive, young again, to give your senses their maximum functioning. Then one functions with no taboos around; then lucidity, grace, beauty flow. Warmth arises again, openness - and growth happens. One is constantly new, young, and one is always on an adventure. The body becomes orgasmic. Joy surrounds you. Through joy the first corruption disappears. Hence my insistence to be joyous...

... animals. It is communication; life is communication. Dialogue disappears when you are burdened with belief systems. How can you really be in a dialogue! You are already too full of your ideas and you think they are absolutely true. When you are listening to the other, you are just being polite, otherwise you don't listen. You know what is right, you are simply waiting until this man finishes and then...

... cannot cry and cannot weep; it is-unmanly. And women have been taught to cry and weep. It is perfectly womanly, so they go on crying and weeping even where it is not needed - it is just a belief system. They use it as a strategy to manipulate. The woman knows that through argument she will not be able to win over the husband, but she can cry - that works. So that becomes her argument. Man is corrupted...

... is corrupted, poisoned instincts, repression, disfiguration. Gurdjieff used to say that all your centres are overlapping each other, are misplaced, are interfering with each other, are trespassing, and you don't know what is what. Each centre in its own functioning is beautiful, but when it starts interfering into somebody else's functioning, then there is great difficulty; then the whole system...

.... And Gabriel is no longer Gabriel - he is Gabby-darling. Hollywood has corrupted Saint Theresa. Your so-called saints are only avoiding the world; they are repressed beings. If opportunities are made available to them, they will fall far lower than you. They are just somehow holding themselves back because of the fear of hell and the greed for heaven. But whatsoever you have repressed because of fear...

... the sex centre function as sex. Let everything function in its own way. Don't allow mechanisms to mix into each other, otherwise you will have corrupted instincts. When instinct is natural, untabooed, spontaneous, without any inhibition, there is a clarity in your body, a harmony in your body. There is a humming sound in your organism. The fifth layer is also male expertise. The sixth layer is...

... corrupted intuition. There is a phenomenon called intuition of which we have become almost unaware. We don't know that anything like intuition exists - because intuition is the sixth layer. Those five layers are so thick that one never comes to feel the sixth. Intuition is a totally different kind of phenomenon from reason. Reason argues; reason uses a process to reach a conclusion. Intuition jumps - it...

... his eyes he was in samadhi. But first the reason had to be exhausted. Intuition functions only when reason is exhausted. Intuition has no process; it simply jumps from the problem to the conclusion. It is a shortcut. It is a flash. We have corrupted intuition. Man's intuition is almost absolutely corrupted. Woman's intuition is not corrupted as much - that's why women have something called a 'hunch...

... aeroplane was hijacked, or it crashed and all the passengers died. Now the woman cannot say how she knows. There is no way. It is just a hunch, just a feeling in the guts. But that too is very corrupted, that's why it is just a flash. When all the five other layers have disappeared and you have dropped fixed ideas - because you have been taught that reason is the only door to reach to any conclusion...

... you don't know who you are, you don't know what your thing is. Notions of the ego go on corrupting you. Then you cannot listen to the truth. And this becomes a problem every day. Just the other day I was talking about Hannah. Rather than understanding what I said, rather than understanding, rather than feeling my compassion - because why else should I say it? - she immediately went to the office and...

... seems to be very, very reasonable - 'What is the point of angering him, annoying him twice? Will it not be better to explain to him why in the first place you said things to annoy him? Would it not be better to explain?' AJNABI SAID, 'IT IS POSSIBLE TO DO THIS, BUT IT WILL HAVE NO EFFECT.' A Master is not interested in being polite, in following the rules of etiquette, manners, etcetera. A master is...

...'s why I have chosen it. Remember those seven layers of the onion. Unless you drop them you cannot see things as they are, you cannot see that which is. And from your very childhood you have been corrupted. Your whole life up to now has been a life of poisoning, and only you can drop it. I can show you the way but I cannot take it away from you. If I start taking it away you will snatch it and escape...

No, the Tammany tiger has not changed its stripes. Then, perhaps, this change is due to public sentiment? Not at all. The explanation is to be found along other lines.

Tammany Hall was one of the strongest political organizations ever seen in the United States, potent not only in municipal and state politics, but often exercising a decisive influence on national affairs. It was, without...

... exaggeration, powerful. If there is one quality that attracts Jews, it is power. Wherever the seat of power may be, thither they swarm obsequiously. As Tammany was power and the gate of power, it was natural that the Jews of the biggest Jewish city in the world should court it. Doubtless, they were also affected by the incongruity of the fact that in the biggest Jewish city, the most solid political power...

But his predilection for the Republican party does not move the Jew to make the mistake of being exclusively the partisan of one group. It is better, as he knows, to control both groups. As a matter of political fact, strong as is the Jewish element in Tammany, it is...

It is a long time since Ferdinand Levy bore the distinction of being the first Jew in New York to hold a political job.

And Levy was solidly backed by the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith...

To arrange this is part of the thoroughness of Jewish control. And, of course, the American people have been sufficiently trained to roar against the public official immediately the first Jewish political hound emits its warning...

What Mr. Hylan, the present mayor of New York has done to merit chastisement, is scarcely clear to a non-partisan investigator. But the fact that the Jews have set out to "get" him for something is...

But he paid the penalty. He was impeached. The Jews who supported him testified against him and their checks were used to assist his dismissal. The story of young Brandt hangs heavily over the heads of some of the...

Playing on both sides of the political fence, and always retaining a string on the men they elect to office, are two Jewish characteristics which should not fail to be reckoned with.

It was perhaps fortunate for his candidacy that he was. The point...

Tammany would do favors for its friends, at the police court or elsewhere; Tammany had its occasional political upheavals; Tammany believed that they who profited by political spoils should divide with the Wigwam's treasury; but with such traffic as seduction and barter in women, Tammany had never been compromised until the...

One Boston ward, where once none but Irish lived, now contains only...

Question 1: BELOVED MASTER, JUDAS SOLD JESUS FOR THIRTY SILVER COINS, AND AFTER TWO THOUSAND YEARS WE SANNYASINS ARE STILL BEHAVING THE SAME WAY WITH YOU.

Jesus has...

... FROM HAPPENING AGAIN? IS A HORIZONTAL HIERARCHY REALLY POSSIBLE? ALLELUIA FOR THIS NEW DAY. That sentence is not mine. I have quoted Lord Acton, so a few things have to be clarified. I agree with him to a certain extent, but basically I disagree with him. His quotation is, "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." This is a factual experience of the whole history of man...

In music, in poetry, in literature. Just one problem with them: they don't have a sense of humor. I have heard that if you tell a joke to an Englishman he laughs two times: first, just to be polite to you - it is expected, you are...

... has been happening always. So, factually, Lord Acton is right, that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. But Lord Acton himself was a politician. He cannot go very deep into the psychology of the matter. Power does not corrupt; it simply gives you an opportunity to bring all your unconscious into the conscious. You always wanted to do these things, but there was no opportunity. So...

... you had repressed all those desires, because they were making you miserable. But any desire repressed remains alive and, whenever there is an opportunity, the desire rises to the conscious mind. Power does not corrupt you; you are already corrupted. Power gives you an opportunity to realize whatever your desires are. In fact, the people who have been in power are themselves amazed. They had never...

... start affecting your actions. So it is not power that corrupts; it is that power simply reveals your reality. You are asking me, what can be done to prevent it? The only way to prevent it is that you should enter as a witness, first of your conscious mind, thoughts, imaginations, etcetera - just be a witness to them without any judgment. And you will be surprised. As your witnessing becomes more and...

But if he remains just a witness, those repressions will surface to the conscious and disappear. That is the miracle of witnessing. When the whole unconscious is empty, then ordinary power cannot corrupt you. The third step has to be taken now: to enter into the collective unconscious. And you...

... with witnessing, disappears. And if you can clean, give a spring-cleaning to your whole consciousness, to the very bottom, then no power can corrupt you - not even absolute power can corrupt you. In fact, on the contrary, power will make you more humble, more creative. Absolute power will make you a great servant of humanity, a great blessing to existence. This is the only way. You cannot prevent...
... surface. Corruption was there as a seed; now it has sprouted. The power has proved only the right season for it to sprout. Power is only the spring for the poisonous flowers of corruption and injustice in their being. Power is not the cause of corruption, but only the opportunity for its expression. Hence I say: basically, fundamentally, Lord Acton is wrong. Who becomes interested in politics? Yes, with...

.... So has been the case with political action. Each revolution turns into antirevolution. It is time we should understand how this happens, why this happens at all - that each revolution, each struggle against injustice, finally turns into injustice itself, becomes antirevolutionary. In this century it has happened again and again - I am not talking about a faraway past. It happened in Russia, it...

It is true only in a sense, and in another sense it is absolutely untrue. It is true if you look at the surface of things: power certainly corrupts, whosoever becomes powerful becomes corrupted. Factually it is true, but if you dive deep into the phenomenon then it is not true...

.... Power does not corrupt: it is the corrupted people who become attracted towards power. It is the people who would like to do things which they cannot do while they are not in power. The moment they are in power, their whole repressed mind asserts itself. Now there is nothing to bar them, nothing to prevent them; they have the power. Power does not corrupt them, it only brings their corruption to the...

Mahatma Gandhi himself escaped because he became aware that if he took power in his hands he would no longer be the mahatma, the sage. And the followers who came into power were all proved as corrupted as...

Go first deep into meditation, so you can cleanse your unconscious of all poisonous seeds, so there is nothing to be corrupted and there is nothing inside you which power can bring forth. And then do whatsoever you feel like doing. If you want to become a painter, become a painter. Your painting will have a difference; it won't be like Picasso...

I am teaching people to sit silently, watch their thoughts, get out of their minds. The stupid revolutionary will think that I am against political action, that I am a reactionary. Just the reverse is the case. Out of...

So India is ready to accept the non-political people on their...

Their approach towards problems should remain human, not political. They should promise only that which they can deliver. The politician makes great promises just to gather votes, and once he is in power he forgets all his...

The signs are good. Rajiv is absolutely non-political. He never wanted to come into politics; it is just circumstances that have brought him into politics. That is a good sign that the inner being is not hankering for...
