Many have heard in the media about the Shoah Project, initiated by Steven Spielberg after working on the film “Schindler’s List.” He became aware of how few survivors of the holocaust were still alive and who could tell others about their story. So he started to interview all those still living to give their testimony in front of the camera. For those, interested in this part of history, it is vital to have these records.
On the other hand, nobody seems to be aware that other important eyewitnesses are also around, witnesses of an events which rarely happens more than once in a century or even in a millennium: the presence of one of the most important Buddhas of all times.
It is absurd that those who have opened the door to
Hitler’s car are being interviewed and their tale broadcast on various
stations, whilst nobody is interested in hearing the story of those who have
been together with a living Buddha.
Researchers would have loved to be able to listen to a live interview with Mahakashyapa, Ananda, St. Peter or Judas. But this is possible today. Many of those who had personal contact with Osho are still alive to tell their tale. They have really something important to say.
It is my plan to interview these eyewitnesses and ask them to tell their story with Osho in front of the camera.
This is an invitation to participate in, and support the project in any way you wish!
Osho about the future:
I do not ordinarily make prophecies, but
about this I am absolutely prophetic: the coming hundred years are going to
be more and more irrational, and more and more mystical.
I am a discontinuity with the past.
The past cannot
understand me; only the future will understand. The past can only condemn
After a hundred years
they will understand.
But right now it is
the crowd, the mob, that decides everything.
And there are people, millions of people, but they are all divided into different kinds of mobs. In a Christian country it is the Christian mob which wants to burn me.
But the mob is afraid of individuals. The very assertion of individuality is a danger to the mobocracy; and it doesn't matter whether the mob is Christian or the mob is Hindu or the mob is Mohammedan. The question is not of the adjective; the question is that the mob is always against the individual.
And the truth is
The people who are to
come after a hundred years will be perfectly able to understand what my
You have also asked
how it feels to me to be persecuted.
Osho, The Osho Upanishad #16
