From The Tantric Tradition An Evening of Relaxation:
Osho Active Meditations have been devised by the modern mystic Osho especially for the modern man, introduces us to the most fundamental steps of meditating. He begins with guidance related to diet, exercise and sleep and then helps us understand how the body, thoughts and emotions can be purified to help us move into meditation. Osho Meditations are especially designed for people who want to bring a new quality of ease to their busy, pressured lives,You can go into the meditative state much quicker and much deeper.
For men and women who not only care about their bodies and their health, but who also like to feel at ease inside. For people
who want to become more calm and flexible.
An ancient meditation from the tantric tradition; a very gentle yet powerful technique which will connect us to higher vibrations allowing the heart center to open up and receive the flow of cosmic energy. Gourishankar meditation is a perfect technique for a night time. “The first two stages are preparation for the spontaneous Latihan of the third stage. If the breathing is done correctly in the first stage, the carbon dioxide formed in the bloodstream will make you feel as high as Gourishankar (Mt. Everest)”
This technique is a simple way to experience glimpses of mindless and it will help to calm the nerve system and will make a night sleep deep and peaceful.
Osho Gourishankar Meditation
The meditation lasts one hour and has four stages of 15 minutes each.
Osho says that if the breathing is done correctly in the first stage of this meditation the carbon dioxide formed in the bloodstream will make you feel as high as Gourishankar (Mt. Everest). This “high” is carried into the subsequent stages of soft gazing, soft and spontaneous movement, and silent stillness.
First Stage: 15 minutes
Sit with closed eyes. Inhale deeply through the nose, filling the lungs. Hold the breath for as long as possible; then exhale gently through the mouth, and keep the lungs empty for as long as possible. Continue this breathing cycle throughout this stage.
Second Stage: 15 minutes
Return to normal breathing and with a gentle gaze look at a candle flame or a flashing blue light. Keep your body still.
Note: Those with a neurological disorder such as epilepsy should never use a strobe or flashing light for this meditation. Instead they can do the second stage with a blindfold.
Third Stage: 15 minutes
With closed eyes, stand up and let your body be loose and receptive. The subtle energies will be felt to move the body outside your normal control. Allow this “Latihan” to happen. Don’t you do the moving: let moving happen, gently and gracefully.Fourth Stage: 15 minutes
Lie down with closed eyes.
Benefits Of Meditation
The benefits of meditation are endless and certainly deserve your contemplation and consideration. Many successful business people, celebrities and sports professionals practice and enjoy the benefits of meditation. Numerous businesses promote and provide help and assistance to their staff with the benefits of meditation courses and because of this they gain an advantage over their competitors and create more profit.
Research has scientifically proven that meditation is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and its countless values have been known and practiced for thousands of years. More and more doctors promote the benefits of meditation to cure many stress related illnesses. Everyday most of us experience stress in many different ways and I believe many people are simply not aware of the benefits of meditation or of how much stress we actually hold on to. Normally life threatening situations trigger off the stress response which enables us to act without contemplation and deliberation and survive intense situations using fast reflexes. When our bodies are exposed to a sudden threat we respond with the characteristic fight or flight reaction which is known as an adrenaline rush. When adrenaline and other hormones are released from the adrenal glands the pulse races, blood pressure increases, our breathing becomes faster and the blood flow to the muscles increases. If we are in extreme danger these reactions are of great assistance and gain to us. We have inherited this survival response from our ancestors who faced many life threatening situations every day. The same response is now triggered in our daily lives when we are in a traffic hold up or someone irritates us at work or we simply break a cup. If we do not confront the situation (and many are beyond our control) we end up being in a permanent state of stress.
One of the most important benefits of meditation is how it releases stress from our bodies. Meditation practiced regularly will lead you to a deeper level of relaxation and contemplation. If you want to be free of constant worry, pressure and stress the benefits of meditation can give you a life that is calm, peaceful, happy and relaxed.
Even ten minutes of meditation a day will help alleviate stress.
Some of the benefits of meditation are:
Reduces anxiety attacks as it lowers the levels of blood lactate.
Builds self confidence.
Increases serotonin which influences moods and behavior. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, headaches and insomnia.
Enhances energy, strength and vigor.
Helps keep blood pressure normal
Reduces stress and tension
Creates a state of deep relaxation and general feeling of well being
Increases concentration and strengthens the mind
Helps reduce heart disease
Helps with weight loss
If you practice regularly, the benefits of meditation will promote a sense of calm and control, you’ll feel far more relaxed and happy. Your ability to concentrate will be greater. You won’t become stressed about things and you’ll feel more peaceful and relaxed about everything. One of the greatest benefits of meditation is learning to go with the flow and things that used to irritate you before simply become insignificant.
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
Methods are needed only until the state of meditation – of relaxed awareness, of consciousness and centering – has become not just a passing experience but as intrinsic to one as, say, breathing.
