Everybody is welcome. Who you are is not relevant-you are welcome. At the gate of an enlightened master, and the gate of Joshu or Buddha, everybody is welcome. The door is, in a sense, open: Come in and have a cup of tea... If you go to the other so-called masters, so-called monks and sannyasins you will become more tense; you cannot relax. Go to a sannyasin. You become more tense, you become more afraid. And he creates guilt. He will look at you with condemnatory eyes, and the very way he will look at you, will say you are a sinner. And he will start condemning-this is wrong, that is wrong; leave this, leave that. This is not the way of a really enlightened person. He will make you feel relaxed.
