" My commune was a revolt.
It survived five years -- it was a miracle, because the whole fascist and
imperialist government of America tried everything to destroy it. ...Finally
the government decided that legally it was impossible to destroy us, and then
they started doing illegal things. And when a world power -- the world's
greatest power -- starts being criminal and illegal, what can...people do? We
were ready to fight legally, rationally, logically, in every possible way. But
illegally it was impossible to fight. " OshO: Beyond Enlightenment, Ch.29
" I have done no harm to America, and yet the whole American government
became so troubled by my presence, so terrified that they wanted in some way or
other -- because they had no legal way -- to throw me out of America.
They had no legal way to destroy the commune in America; they did everything
illegal, everything criminal, everything against their own constitution, and
destroyed a beautiful commune -- an oasis in the desert which could have proved
a model for the future humanity. But perhaps deep down they became aware that
what was going on there went against their politics, their war efforts, their
nuclear weapons." OshO: Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries, Ch.19
" Prem Niren, what happened with me in America and with my people has to
become a historical fact, exposing both the religions and the politicians, and
all their bogus talk and great words. " OshO: Satyam, Shivam, Sundram, Ch.14, Q.1
" And my chief attorney Niren is here -- he is my sannyasin.
He has been going through all the jails where they mistreated me in every
possible way. And they are lying.... I can understand Niren's difficulty, but
you have to gather courage and you have to encounter these people. ...Because
if a blind man cannot see the sun, that does not mean the sun is not there, or
if a man who is interested in climbing ladders cannot see the roses, it is not
the fault of the roses.
To see the sublime, to see the divine you have to be unprejudiced, you have to
be open and receptive. " OshO: Om Mani Padme Hum, Ch.12
" Niren...was my chief attorney, because he was my sannyasin and all the
other attorneys were chosen by him; he was the coordinator.
The others were paid, only he was working for love. " OshO: Satyam, Shivam, Sundram, Ch.14, Q.1
" This is the world that we have created -- where in the name of justice
all kinds of injustices will be done, where in the name of truth all kinds of
fictions will be invented, imposed, conditioned. And you are carrying the whole
past, so whenever you really touch an original space in your being, your whole
past will try to distract you. You have to be very alert and very conscious not
to be corrupted by your own past, not to be corrupted by your own scriptures,
not to be corrupted by your own history.
Unless this awareness is there, you may come around the right point many times
and again you will go astray, far away. " OshO: Om Mani Padme Hum, Ch.15
