This question was asked to OSHO about 40 years ago at the beginning of the AIDS era!
You are asking the wrong question, answered Osho. The correct question would be how to avoid fear of death caused by an epidemic?
It's very easy to avoid the virus, but it's very difficult to avoid the fear of yourself and the world around you.
People die from fear much more than from an epidemic.
There is no virus in the world that is more dangerous than fear.
Knowing that fear you become a DEAD BODY before your BODY DIES.
It has nothing to do with the virus.
The atmosphere of fear you feel in these moments is collective madness...
This has happened thousands of times and will continue to happen.
And it will continue until you understand the psychology of crowds and fear.
You usually keep your fear under control, but in a moment of collective madness, your consciousness can be completely gone.
You won't even know when you lost control of your fear.
Then fear can make you do anything.
In such a situation, you can also take your own life or others.
So much will happen soon. Many kill themselves and many kill others.
Don't watch the news that cause fear.
Stop talking about the epidemic! Repeating the same thing over and over again is like self-hypnosis.
Fear is actually self hypnosis.
This causes chemical changes in the body.
If you repeat the same thought again and again, a chemical change will trigger, which can sometimes be so toxic that it can physically kill.
During an epidemic, energy around the world becomes irrational.
This is how you can fall into a black hole at any moment.
Meditation becomes a protective aura that no negative energy penetrates.
