Please, let us not judge people for who they are or what they've done, at the end of the day we do not know for ourselves the truth about others because we were never there to experience it first hand. I posted the article for everyone to enjoy, to learn from, to see the relation with Buddhism thought. Instead, people focused on the negative aspects thinking it means anything, thinking there is value, but I must state there is no value in negativity, because negativity can be found anywhere, no one is perfect, we all have faults, therefore to judge someone and focus on their negative aspects is easy, does not require skill and does not help anyone, it is very unskillful. In fact negativity destroys things, it takes things that are beautiful and magnifies their defects and taints them so no one else can enjoy the beauty, this is greedy, you have taken pleasure away from others. It doesn't matter how many Buddhist teachers you know or have, you can call yourself Buddhist, or whatever you want, but as long as you are unskillful in your ways, the reality is you are no different than every other person on this planet who makes no effort.
I find the article speaks to me, I find a lot of what Osho says speaks to me, just like what the Buddha says speaks to me, I don't care about Osho's past, I don't care about what he has done, we are all guilty of things. To know this is to know compassion.
