Continuation of the previous post His grave is in Kashmir, Osho, The Most Dangerous Man Since Jesus Christ
In fact, everything that is pleasant has been destroyed by Christianity. It is said that you
cannot be rejoicing and enjoying life when other people are suffering. What do you mean? -- if other people have cancer, you should have cancer also? If other people are suffering, that does not mean that you should suffer also. You should help the suffering to cut the roots of their suffering. That you don't allow: God has made
them to suffer; they are suffering because it is the will of God, so don't change their suffering but change your joyousness, your cheerfulness, your laughter, your blissfulness. While other people are suffering you are laughing? you are dancing? you are singing?
Christians have made the whole world miserable. The churches are the most sad places; even graveyards are more joyous, with flowers and beautiful trees. Churches ...? I have been into churches. As you enter a church it feels as though you are entering hell -- just the fire is missing, so it is all cold. Perhaps the fuel is finished in hell! -- there is an end to everything. Now be careful: when you go to hell, take woolen clothes with you, because there is no more hell fire, just an eternal winter which goes on getting colder and colder.
What kind of nonsense is this? If other people are sick, do you have to drop your healthiness? If other people are stupid, idiotic, retarded, do you have to drop your intelligence? This is a strange theology of destroying people's happiness. If people are suffering, share your happiness with them, make them also laugh. Cut the roots of their suffering. That seems to be human. This teaching is absolutely inhuman! A few are suffering because God wants them to suffer -- and you have to suffer because Christianity wants you to suffer. Don't laugh, don't smile, don't enjoy anything, don't rejoice .... Then why not commit suicide? For what are you living? Just to watch the suffering of others, and your own? Christianity leaves no other alternative than suicide. It is not an accident that the Western philosophers have come to the point of existentialism, which preaches that suicide is the only way out. It is Christianity deep down which has made the whole world so miserable that there seems almost to be no need to wake up tomorrow morning. For what? just to continue this misery?
And it is strange: on the one hand they say, "Know thy place. God makes everyone as they are ...." Do you see the contradiction? If God has made you a laughing, enjoying, rejoicing person, then this principle does not apply. It only applies to the sufferers: "Don't change your place, suffer. God makes everyone as they are." If it is true, then God has made many people loving, laughing, rejoicing, dancing. Who are you to prevent them? But no, it is not applicable as far as joy is concerned, only suffering. What can be the reason behind it? The reason is clear. Only the people who are miserable will seek the advice of the priests and the popes. Only the people who are miserable can be enslaved, can be told that "You are sheep and we are the shepherds." Only miserable people need salvation. A happy person, a blissful person does not need any salvation. I don't need any salvation! I have solved all my problems. I have found myself. I have found the door to the divine. I don't need any shepherd, and I don't want to be called a sheep. If I had been present I would have slapped Jesus Christ. Christianity has turned lions into sheep. I want you to roar in laughter and joy like lions. Cut the roots of misery, suffering, slavery, all kinds of exploitation. We need a classless society, and ultimately we need a world without any government.
As I entered America, the first question they asked me was, "Are you are a communist?Are you an anarchist?"I said, "Both, and something more."They said, "Something more?"I said, "Yes. Communism is only a step. The Soviet Union has missed, it is just clinging to that step ...."Karl Marx's idea was that as communism settles down, the government will disappear;otherwise, the bureaucrats become the new bourgeois. That is what happened in Russia,that is happening in China. That is going to happen in every communist country. The Communist Party takes the place of the capitalists -- no change. The poor remain the poor. Of course, they are equally poor. The only equality that communist countries know is equality of poverty.I want equality of richness, a rich world -- which is possible, because if we use science and technology not to exploit people but to create more and more wealth, more and more nourishment for people, scientists say we can support through science and technology a seven times bigger population than exists today.But they are being prevented by the churches, by all the religions, by the capitalists.
The fear is that if there is nobody poor, who is going to go to the church? If there is nobody poor, who is going to pray to God? If there is nobody who is suffering, the priest is not needed. A rich world, an equal world, a world without government, without crime, a world of meditators, a religious world, will not need three hundred religions as they exist today. And Christianity is the biggest religion, of course, and the biggest crime against humankind.

In fact, in the oldest monastery of Mount Athos ... It is near Greece, a sovereign country, it has its own government. It is a thousand-year-old monastery. Once a man becomes a monk in this monastery of Mount Athos, he cannot leave the monastery alive, only his corpse will come out. This they call loyalty. I call it slavery. I call it absolute destruction of freedom of choice -- because tomorrow I may not feel like being in Mount Athos, but I have no choice. They have not only taken my present, they have taken my future also. It is the ugliest place in the world, because no woman has ever entered, has ever been allowed to enter, Mount Athos. You will be surprised: what kind of people are living there? Even a six-month-old baby girl cannot be allowed in Mount Athos. Are these monks or monsters?
But that is not the end of the story.
THE MONASTERY AT MOUNT ATHOS, AN INDEPENDENT CHURCH STATE IN
GREECE, STRICTLY FORBIDS THE ENTRY OF FEMALES OF ANY KIND ....
Have you known females of any kind? I was surprised, I have known only one kind. When I first heard it, I could not believe that there are other kinds of female also. But then I understood there are. ... EVEN BABIES, PET DOGS, CATS OR PARROTS WHICH ARE FEMALE. This can give you a clear-cut indication what kind of people are living there. They are not only homosexuals; the fear is that if even animals enter there which ae female, these monks are not going to leave those animals alone. They will commit sodomy. Sodomy means making love to animals.
And this you call religion? This you call transformation of human beings?
One journalist who has just visited there found that "THERE ARE SOME MEN WHO
WERE TAKEN THERE IMMEDIATELY AFTER BIRTH, HAVE NEVER SEEN A
WOMAN IN THEIR LIVES" -- not even their mothers. As they were getting out of the
womb, they were immediately transferred to Mount Athos. They have never seen that any
kind of woman exists in the world.
One monk stated to the journalist, "IT TOOK ONLY ONE WOMAN TO UNDO THE
GARDEN OF EDEN. IT WOULD TAKE THE SAME NUMBER TO DAMN MOUNT
ATHOS." Just one woman, he is saying, destroyed the Garden of Eden; one woman will
destroy Mount Athos. And these are great monks, holy people, loyal to God, constantly
But nothing seems to have changed in their biology, nothing seems to have changed in
their minds, in their dreams, in their imagination. But they are forced, they cannot go out
-- that's why Mount Athos has its own government, its own police, its own guards
continuously guarding the monastery. Nobody can escape out of the monastery. Do
whatever you want to do, but do it in the monastery.
I have heard a few days ago about another monastery where there are one thousand
monks who were divided with a wall, because fifty percent want homosexuality to be
accepted by the church, and fifty percent are against it. Not that they are not
homosexuals, they just don't want to make it public. Keep it quiet.
Christianity and other religions have helped all kinds of sexual perversions in the world --
and they think they have been very beneficial? they have been a blessing to the world?
They are absolutely a curse, categorically a curse, and unless they disappear, man cannot
live in peace.
