Acharya Rajneesh was a great man who moved with the times. His interpretation of guilt in the human mind is much appreciated now.

Acharya Rajneesh and Guilt

I have been wondering about the hidden desires of man. All of us have desires and for most they die a natural death. The ancient Hindu scriptures dealt with these desires in tantra. Most of these desires hover around sex. I suppose this is inevitable and beautifully explained by Freud. He was a psychoanalyst who interpreted everyday events and humans actions including dreams as having a sexual connotation.


I have also been prey to such desires, but like most men kept them under wraps. It was my meeting with Rajneesh that relieved me from my guilt complex. This guilt complex is normal and is the main driving force in most humans. Desire for another woman is thought of as bad and most religions do not condone it. This is where Rajneesh comes in. He brought a breath of fresh air in a staid and drab life by doing away with the guilt complex. He accepted desire as a normal human feeling and not some thing anathema.
More than two decades back a friend took me to the ashram of Rajneesh. As I bowed at the feet of the man an American girl also entered. This girl sat at the feet of the master, but as she sat I was enveloped by a strange desire to love that girl. I thought it was strange desire, perhaps morally wrong. But now I know it was something absolutely normal. There was a clash in my mind, because of the guilt complex.
Rajneesh had an uncanny power of divination, or maybe he was a good face reader. All he said to me was “go and mate with her" and he just smiled as the girl left. That is the essence of Acharya Rajneesh, the fact he did away with the guilt complex in a simple relationship. This was the most enlightening moment of my life as I followed what Rajneesh told me. It’s a pity that after this Rajneesh left for the USA and on his return died, as he had been poisoned by the FBI. I think his going to the USA was a blunder as the church took him as a threat and conspired to eliminate him.

Rajneesh was targeted in America, and a great smear campaign did him in. Thanks for shedding light on this Madan.

So much of the ways of the world we are not aware or believe as truth. Many will remain a mystery like what you said in the beginning - die a natural death. Thanks Madan - siva
