Osho Sakshi and the Science of Awakening: A Course in Witnessing

Osho spent his whole life working to awaken as many individuals as possible through the practice of meditation. In addition to teaching the 112 ancient meditation techniques of the Vigyan Bhairava Tantra, Osho also devised new “active” meditation techniques designed specifically to overcome the complexities and busyness of the modern mind. But Osho has also said that the very core of meditation is witnessing.

In this module we will explore Osho Sakshi and the Science of Awakening through twenty programs. This module is part of A Course in Witnessing.

“This word sakshi is very beautiful and very valuable. The whole philosophy, genius and wisdom of the East is implied in this small word. The East has contributed no other more important word than sakshi, the witness, to the world.

What does sakshi mean? Sakshi means the seer, the witness. Who is this who is experiencing that “I am not the body”? Who is this experiencing that “I am not the mind”? Who is this who goes on denying that “I am not this, I am not this”? There is an element of seeing, of watching, of the watcher within us which sees, which observes everything.

This seer is the sakshi, the witness.”

-Osho
