Program #1: What is Zen?

In this module we will explore Osho Zen and experiment with Osho’s Witnessing meditation.

Here you will find audio programs which are approximately 2 hours in length. They are divided into two parts so that you can take a short break in between if you wish. The first part is a listening meditation and the second is either a satsang meditation or one of Osho’s No-Mind meditations. You can begin the program with Amido giving the invocation.

The Listening Meditation is simply an invitation to remain here and now, to Be present, to be in silence. And the way to enter this silence is through right listening, samyak shravan.

Here is what Osho has said about samyak shravan.  

The Satsang Meditation is comprised of alternating periods of silence, music and Osho’s spoken word. The satsangs always begin with silence and end with three bells.

The Satsang Meditation is an opportunity to sink ever more deeply into stillness, into silence. The satsangs give us an opportunity to explore witnessing. From this place of silence, with closed eyes, we watch, we witness whatever appears within our consciousness. It may be sensations in the body, it may be thoughts in the mind and it may be feelings in the heart, all or any of these are allowed to reveal themselves without us judging and without analyzing. Our job is to discover the witness.
