Osho, why does everyone here understand you in his own way?
It is just natural -
Tathata. How can it be otherwise? Everybody has to understand me in
his own way, because everybody has a mind - and right now the
understanding is happening through the mind. When mind disappears

need for me to say anything - I will be sitting in silence, you will
be sitting in silence, and we will enjoy silence; there will be
communion, a heart-to-heart communion.
But right now you have minds and there is no other way for me to
communicate with you. And one has to accept this: that when you are
communicating with minds you have to accept that they will
understand differently, they will understand in their own way.
It is natural that people should understand differently - people
have different minds.
