OSHO Dynamic Meditation

This meditation is a fast, intense and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the body-mind that keep one imprisoned in the past, and to experience the freedom, the witnessing, silence and peace that are hidden behind these prison walls.

The meditation is meant to be done in the early morning, when as Osho explains it, “the whole of nature becomes alive, the night has gone, the sun is coming up and everything becomes conscious and alert.”

osho-dynamic-meditation-1st-stageFirst Stage: 10 minutes

Breathe chaotically through the nose, concentrating always on exhalation. The body will take care of the inhalation. The breath should move deeply into the lungs. Be as fast as you can in your breathing, making sure the breathing stays deep. Do this as fast and as hard as you possibly can – and then a little harder, until you literally become the breathing. Use your natural body movements to help you to build up your energy. Feel it building up, but don’t let go during the first stage. The key for Dynamic Meditation is “irregular” breathing.

Explode! Express everything that needs to be thrown out. Go totally mad. Scream, shout, cry, jump, shake, dance, sing, laugh; throw yourself around. Hold nothing back; keep your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Never allow your mind to interfere with what is happening. Be total, be whole hearted.

osho-dynamic-meditation-3rd-stageThird Stage: 10 minutes

With raised arms, jump up and down shouting the mantra, “Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!” as deeply as possible. Each time you land, on the flats of your feet, let the sound hammer deep into the sex center. Give all you have; exhaust yourself totally.

 

osho-dynamic-meditation-4th-stageFourth Stage: 15 minutes

Stop! Freeze wherever you are, in whatever position you find yourself. Don’t arrange the body in any way. A cough, a movement – anything will dissipate the energy flow and the effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.

 

osho-dynamic-meditation-5th-stageFifth Stage: 15 minutes

Celebrate through dance, expressing your gratitude towards the whole. Carry your happiness with you throughout the day. 

 

 

Osho says:

This is a meditation in which you have to be continuously alert, conscious, aware, whatsoever you do. Remain a witness. Don’t get lost. While you are breathing you can forget. You can become one with the breathing so much that you can forget the witness. But then you miss the point.

Breathe as fast as possible, as deep as possible; bring your total energy to it but still remain a witness. Observe what is happening as if you are just a spectator, as if the whole thing is happening to somebody else, as if the whole thing is happening in the body and the consciousness is just centered and looking.

This witnessing has to be carried in all the three steps. And when everything stops, and in the fourth step you have become completely inactive, frozen, then this alertness will come to its peak.

Dynamic Meditation is best done with the music that was created specifically for it. You can buy it in either CD or MP3 format from Amazon.

This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.

First Stage: 15 minutes

Be loose and let your whole body shake, feeling the energy moving up from your feet. Let go everywhere and become the shaking. Your eyes may be open or closed.

 

osho-kundalini-meditation-2nd-stageSecond Stage: 15 minutes

Dance … any way you feel, and let the whole body move as it wishes.

 

 

osho-kundalini-meditation-3rd-stage

Third Stage: 15 minutes

Close your eyes and be still, sitting or standing, witnessing whatever is happening inside and out.

 

osho-kundalini-meditation-4th-stage

Fourth Stage: 15 minutes

Keeping your eyes closed, lie down, let go totally and be still.

 

 

Osho says:

Do my meditations, but not willfully. Don’t force them, rather let them happen. Float in them, abandon yourself in them, be absorbed, but not willfully. Don’t manipulate because when you manipulate you are divided, you become two: the manipulator and the manipulated. Once you are two, heaven and hell are created immediately. Then there is a vast distance between you and the truth. Don’t manipulate. Allow things to happen.

If you are doing the Kundalini Meditation, then allow the shaking, don’t do it. Stand silently, feel it coming and when your body starts a little trembling, help it but don’t do it. Enjoy it, feel blissful about it, allow it, receive it, welcome it, but don’t will it. If you force, it will become an exercise, a bodily physical exercise. Then the shaking will be there but just on the surface, it will not penetrate you. You will remain solid, stone-like, rock-like within; you will remain the manipulator, the doer, and the body will just be following. The body is not the question – you are the question.

When I say shake I mean your solidity, your rock-like being should shake to the very foundations so that it becomes liquid, fluid, melts, flows. And when the rock-like being becomes liquid, your body will follow. Then there is no shaker, only shaking. Then nobody is doing it, it is simply happening. Then the doer is not.

Kundalini is not really meditation. It is just preparation. You are preparing your instrument. When it is ready, then you stand in silence, then meditation starts. Then you are utterly there. You have woken yourself up by shaking and dancing – these are devices to make you a little more alert than you ordinarily are. Once you are alert, then the waiting.

Waiting is meditation; waiting with full awareness. And then it comes, it descends on you, it surrounds you, it plays around you, it dances around you, it cleanses you, it purifies you, it transforms you.

OSHO Nadabrahma Meditation

Nadabrahma Meditation is a one hour technique in three stages. It has been adapted from an ancient Tibetan method. It can be done any time of the day or night, alone or with others. It is good to do this technique with an empty stomach.

osho-nadabrahma-meditation-1st-stageFirst Stage: 30 minutes

Sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed and lips together. Start humming, loudly enough to be heard by others and crate a vibration throughout your body. You can visualize a hollow tube or an empty vessel, filled only with the vibrations of the humming. A point will come when the humming continues by itself and you become the listener. There is no special breathing and you can alter your pitch or move your body smoothly and slowly if you feel to.

Second Stage: 15 minutes (7 1/2+7 1/2)

osho-nadabrahma-meditation-2nd-stageThe second stage is divided into two 7 ½ minute sections. For the first half, move the hands, palms up, in an outward circular motion. Starting at the navel, both hands move forwards and then divide to make two large circles mirroring each other, left and right. The movement should be so slow that at times there will appear to be no movement at all. Feel that you are giving energy to the universe.

osho-nadabrahma-meditation-3-rd-stage

After 7 ½ minutes turn the hands, palm down, and start moving them in the opposite direction. Now the hands will come together towards the navel and divide outwards to the sides of the body. Feel that you are taking energy in. As in the first stage, don’t inhibit any soft, slow movement of the rest of your body.

 

 

osho-kundalini-meditation-4th-stageThird Stage: 15 minutes

Sitting or lying down remain absolutely quiet and still.

 

 

Osho says:

So in Nadabrahma, remember this: let the body and mind be totally together, but remember that you have to become a witness. Get out of them, easily, slowly, from the back door, with no fight, with no struggle.
