INTERVIEW WITH STERN MAGAZINE, WEST GERMANY
QUESTION:* BHAGWAN, YOU HAVE READ SHEELA'S INTERVIEW WITH STERN
MAGAZINE, AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS ALSO THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO
CLARIFY SOME OF THE POINTS.
Q:* SHE CLAIMED THAT A DRUG NAMED ECSTASY WAS USED HERE IN THE
COMMUNE. DID YOU EVER USE IT OR KNOW THAT IT WAS USED HERE?
A:* She is simply lying. I have never used. I am constantly in ecstasy without any
drug. What need I can have of Ecstasy? The drug can only create a hallucination and I
have got the real thing.
Q:* SO DO YOU HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE THAT THIS DRUG WAS USED IN
A:* No, because in this commune drugs are completely prohibited. And if anybody
could bring them it was only Sheela and her group, because they were in charge of the
commune. I was in silence and isolation, never leaving out my room. I had no idea
what is going on outside.
If she knew that they... drugs are being used in the commune, why she did not inform
me about it? Why she did not inform the government about it? And I have been
consistently insisting that no drugs should enter Rajneeshpuram because every drug is
against meditation. It gives an illusion which is dangerous. One can get addicted to it.
So if she is right, then she is responsible for it.
