Question 1
Maneesha has asked a question:
BELOVED ZORBA THE BUDDHA,
YOU REFERRED TO THE MAHABODHI SABHA BUDDHISTS AS BIGOTED AND PREJUDICED. THEY HAVE ALSO, IN ESSENCE, DICTATED TO GAUTAMA AND TO YOU HOW YOU BOTH SHOULD BEHAVE. ARE BIGOTRY, PREJUDICE AND DICTATORIAL ATTITUDES ALL PART OF THE SAME SYNDROME?

Yes, Maneesha.
It is very unfortunate but it has been the whole history of man that the crowd, the mob, the ignorant, has been dictating the behavior even of those who have come to be enlightened.
It reminds me of the times of Gautam Buddha. The masses were demanding, "When Mahavira is standing naked under the sun, that is true renunciation. Why are you carrying three pieces of clothing? Just these three pieces of clothing destroy your claim that you are the awakened one."
The masses were asking Gautam Buddha, "Mahavira knows past, future and present. Do you know? If you don't, then you cannot claim to be of the same status as Mahavira."
Nobody ever inquired what Mahavira knows about the future. Perhaps he knows something about the past -- he cannot know everything about the past; the past is four million years. Perhaps he knows something about his past lives, that is conceivable; but he cannot know anything about the future.
Do you think Mahavira knew that we would be meeting this evening in Gautama the Buddha Auditorium? Then he must have gone mad! Too much to remember -- the whole past, the whole future, the whole present....
Neither Mahavira knew anything about the future nor Buddha knew anything about the future. But to concede... because the problem is, the masses are asking you; otherwise they will not give you the respect.
He conceded, "Yes, when I want to look into the future, I can look. Whenever I want to look at the past, I can. But I cannot say that I know without looking in the past, in the future."
The masses thought, "Obviously he has not attained that great height which Mahavira has attained."
And it is not that they asked only Gautam Buddha; they have been asking everybody, and even your so-called great geniuses have been conceding to their demands, considering the ignorant masses. Otherwise, they lose all respectability.
Perhaps I am the first man in the history of mankind who does not care a bit about respectability. What respectability? -- from ignorant people? I don't have to make considerations for anyone. I just depend on my spontaneity and my consciousness. Other than that, I don't care about anybody.
In the commune in America, my friends from all over the world had given me ninety-three Rolls Royces. The whole of America was jealous. Perhaps for the first time they had come across such a man, who owns nothing and yet makes the richest people of the world jealous.
Even Rockefeller was against me, wanted me to be somehow destroyed. Because even the richest could not afford ninety-three Rolls Royces, and I was allowing my friends, if they wanted, to bring Rolls Royces. I had no use for them, I had never gone to look in the garage. Even the Rolls Royce company's president had come to see the garage, because I was a historic customer: never before or after is anybody going to have ninety-three Rolls Royces. And seven more were on the way before they arrested me.
I created so much jealousy. They could not understand, they could not see, they were absolutely blind. They could not see that no man can use even two Rolls Royces together, so there must be something else behind this whole scene.
There was. I was attacking the very egoistic idea of America that they are the richest people in the world -- and I proved it. And I still challenge them: if anybody has the guts, just produce ninety-three Rolls Royces.
One bishop was continuously, every Sunday, talking against my Rolls Royces. Such is the blindness! Perhaps he was dreaming only about Rolls Royces; seven days per week he was thinking about it; otherwise how could this become his only sermon? He forgot all about Jesus and the Bible.
And you will be surprised -- before I was arrested, there was a rumor for two months continuously that any day I would be arrested. But even the government agencies refused to arrest me, for the simple reason that "You don't have any evidence against that man. If he has ninety-three Rolls Royces, you are free to have more. It is a free country."
The FBI refused; the National Guard refused. The chief of the National Guard simply laughed. He said, "You are just being stupid. Your real reason is jealousy because the commune is living in such beauty and comfort and love and joy. You want to destroy the commune, but I don't see any reason to order his arrest."
They approached the Army -- to arrest a single human being who has not even a paper knife. And the chief of the Army said, "You are asking an absolutely nonsense question. Never in the history of man has the Army been ordered to arrest a single human being who has no weapons."
This bishop, seeing that soon I will be arrested because the government and the fundamentalist Christians were determined to destroy the commune, wrote me a letter, saying, "Now that you will be going -- it is almost certain -- can you give one Rolls Royce to my church in charity?" And this same man, for years, had been condemning them!
I informed him, "I can give you all the Rolls Royces. Do you have space in your church?"
He wrote back to say, "No, I don't want ninety-three, because that will destroy me! Just one..."
I said, "I am not that miserly. Either ninety-three or none." He became silent.
That shows the psychology of man. What he says may not be what is in his mind; his intention may be totally different. What he acts is not necessarily what he wants to do. The unconscious mind looks all around and follows the crowd.
I love George Gurdjieff -- only one man in this whole century -- because he said, "Don't consider others." That was his fundamental. Naturally he could not get many followers -- not more than twenty lived with him, and perhaps there were two hundred who used to come and go.
Why did he say, "Don't consider others"? Because if you consider others you are considering unconsciousnesses, and if you negotiate with them you are falling down from your own consciousness. Or perhaps you are also an unconscious being, desiring to be respected by the idiots.
I don't consider anybody. It is enough for me to look into myself.
Spontaneity, to me, is the only virtue, awareness the only religion. And only weaklings, cowards, consider others.

Maneesha, it is the same syndrome: bigotry, prejudice, and a dictatorial attitude.
But nobody can dictate anything to me. If this mad society wants to kill me, they can kill me -- but they cannot dictate to me.

It is time for Sardar Gurudayal Singh.

When a husband comes home unexpectedly, a French wife says, "Pierre, move over; my husband is home!"
A German wife says, "Fritz, you are two minutes early!"
An English wife says, "Hullo, darling. May I introduce Gilbert?"
A Greek wife says, "Hi, Spyro! The back door is still open!"
An Italian wife says, "Mamma mia, Luigi. If you are going to shoot-a us all, shoot-a yourself first!"
And a Jewish wife says, "Hymie, is that you? Then who is this with me?"

Kowalski decides to take his family on vacation to Miami Beach. He piles everybody into his old Ford and heads on down the Florida highway.
Three days later, he is back.
"What happened?" asks Jablonski, the next door neighbor. "Did you not like Miami Beach?"
"I never got the chance to find out," explains Kowalski. "I was driving down the highway when I came to a big sign that said: `MIAMI BEACH -- LEFT.' So I turned around and came back home!"

What is the difference between a misfortune and a disaster?
A great difference. For example: a goat is walking across a bridge, loses its footing and falls into the river. That is a misfortune, not a disaster.
But if an airplane carrying Ronald Reagan and his entire Cabinet crashes, and everybody is killed, that is a disaster -- but not a misfortune.

Nivedano...

(Drumbeat)

(Gibberish)

Nivedano...

(Drumbeat)

Be silent. Close your eyes. Feel your body to be completely frozen.
This is the right moment to look inwards with your total consciousness, and with an urgency as if this is going to be your last moment.
The urgency makes the job absolutely easy. Your consciousness rushes like a spear into the center of your being... and there is tremendous silence, a great peace, and an experience of your own buddhahood.
The only quality of the buddha
is just to be a witness.
Watch everything.
Your body is not you, your mind is not you. You are only your witness.
This witness is eternal; it has been always here and will always remain here, whether in some body or spread all over the universe.
That's what happens to the enlightened man. When he dies he is not born again; he simply disappears into the vast cosmos, becomes one with it.

To make the witnessing more clear,

Nivedano...

(Drumbeat)

Relax, but remember only one thing: witnessing. This single word witnessing is the master key to all the mysteries and miracles of life.

The evening was immensely beautiful in itself, but the presence of ten thousand buddhas has made it a splendor, a majesty, a beauty not ordinarily known on this planet. I can see the Buddha Auditorium has turned into a lake of consciousness without any ripples.
You are the most fortunate ones at this moment on the earth.
Gather as much silence as you can, as many flowers, that are showering on you -- of silence, of love, of joy...
Gather all the songs that are arising in you, all the dances, and persuade the buddha to come along with you.
It has been a long time he has been hiding at the center of your being. Bring him to the circumference of your life. That is the only real test:
when your actions become graceful,
when your eyes radiate love, silence, infinity,
when your silence is a song,
when you are just sitting, still one can feel
a dance within you
of immense beauty and splendor.
Persuade the buddha. It is your own being. Slowly slowly, every day, the difference between the circumference and the center is becoming less and less and less.
The moment the difference disappears you are enlightened.
You don't have any need to be initiated; you don't have any need for any recognition from any authority. You are the authority! You are the buddha!
Just take your life in your own hands.
That is the only dignity of individuality.

Nivedano...

(Drumbeat)

Come back -- not the way you have gone in,
but as a new man, as a buddha
with peace, silence and grace,
with beauty.

Just sit in silence for a few moments to remember, to recollect the golden path you have traveled just now. And remember all that you experience at the center of your being -- you have to bring it to the circumference.
You have to remember day and night -- without any tension, in a relaxed and playful way -- that every act of yours shows compassion and love, that every word of yours shows grace and beauty, that your whole life slowly becomes a song, a poetry... a haiku.

 

Okay, Maneesha?
Yes, Zorba The Buddha.
