Meditation – Osho’s view
Meditation is adventure, the greatest adventure the human mind can undertake. Meditation is just to be, not doing anything – no action, no thought, no emotion. You just are. And it is a sheer delight.
From where does this delight come when you are not doing anything? It comes from nowhere, or, it comes from everywhere. It is uncaused, because the existence is made of the stuff called joy.
Meditation is nothing especially oriental and it is far from being just a technique. You can’t learn meditation, it is personal growth. When you live totally, existence will unfold inside of you. Meditation is not a perception you can add to your personality.
You have to go through deep metamorphosis and transformation. Growth is always holistic, it’s never an addition. Love is not a wing you can paste onto your personality. Love arises from the wholeness of your being. It’s all about growing until you have reached a meditative dimension.
(Osho: Technique of meditation)
Meditation – Dhyan Manish’s view
Meditation is a technique which allows us to get in contact with our inner being via our ethereal body.
Meditation means to be present and conscious in the here-and-now.
Meditation is like being in one’s house and looking outside through the windows.
The meditative being is connected with existence and the universal truth. It is the observer of its mind and its ego which allows him or her to in conscious harmony with his or her life and to live in a more serene, simpler and more spiritual way.
A simple and quick method for meditating:
- Close your eyes.
- Become aware of all the parts of your body that are in contact with the ground.
- Let go of all tensions in your body.
- Relax your jaws and open your mouth slightly.
- Observe and listen to your respiration without changing its rhythm.
If you follow these steps you are already on your way to meditation.
