“The first commune was destroyed because of women’s jealousies.
They were fighting continuously.
The second commune was destroyed because of women’s jealousies .
And this is the third commune – and the last, because I am getting tired. Once in a while I think perhaps Buddha was right not to allow any women in his commune for twenty years. I am not in favor of him: I am the first who has allowed men and women the same, equal opportunity for enlightenment.
But I have burnt my fingers twice, and it has always been the jealousy of the women.”
– discourse from Osho in Pune two.
