Osho meditation was first popular in the 1970s. The reason is not difficult to understand; its practitioners dance and play music and look very happy and sexually liberated; this is very different from other forms of meditation, which often involve less exercise more privacy. 

If the idea of ​​dynamic meditation forms fascinates you, then it’s time to take a look at Osho’s meditation techniques and the unique methods they provide. This book offers tips and tricks to help you get started and a bold and unique way of meditation unlike any other. 


Meditation is developed to understand better and get closer to the true self and absolute happiness. 

What is Osho practice? There are different schools of meditation, but Osho meditation is mainly about consciousness. The goal is to reach a level of understanding that promotes relaxation, positivity, and happiness. Whether walking, running, or lying down to listen to the sounds of nature, Osho sees all of these as conscious meditations. 

A key phrase often used by authors is: Be an observer, observer of knowledge. They observe everything and remain calm. When there is sorrow, there is happiness, but they don’t focus on these things. You stay awake and relaxed. As you can imagine, this is not an instant change but a slow four-step process.  

The first step in realizing and becoming an observer is to observe your body. Pay attention to every action. Prepare for the connection between your mind and body. 

Life begins where fear ends.

The second step is to understand your thoughts better. Everything is more complicated. Thoughts are fleeting, but they can also be cunning. If you can write down every idea that came up in a short period and then read all these thoughts in ten minutes, you might ask, “Who is this person?!” However, with awareness, you will find your distracting thoughts. It will gradually disappear. 

The third step is to understand your emotions and emotions better. It may be the most challenging step. Feelings and emotions can take us away, but remember that the observer remains calm. If you can be aware of these three: your body, mind, and emotions, you will see how they are connected. You will be able to see the bridge between your mind and body, and you will find that there can be a more profound peace. 

When these three elements are in harmony, the fourth step can be achieved: awakening. It is the experience of the Buddha; this is luck. It is the ultimate goal of the enlightener and the observer.


To start your meditation journey, find the right place and leave your worries behind. 

The next question is how to meditate? There are many techniques to help you meditate, but this is not meditation. Doing is not meditation. Meditation is just doing nothing there. -Relaxed, unintentionally. 

So, when you start to meditate, you will undoubtedly work hard. You will try to do something, but as time and consciousness grow, you will eventually find yourself in this inactive space. You will understand that you have not done anything, just existed. It is how you meditate. 

First, spend an hour meditating. It may sound like a lot, but is one request too much in 24 hours? 

Then find a place to meditate. Ideally, you will find a place in nature away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. If you can find a tree to sit on, it would be perfect. As Osho said, trees are constantly meditating. 

Of course, for some of us, this is impossible. If you can’t find a quiet place in nature, find a quiet place in the room where you can concentrate on meditation. This area is best used only for contemplation; residual energy from other activities will linger in some places, and this energy will eventually become a hindrance. 

Your meditation area should be treated as a sacred place, so take off your shoes before entering, which is a step in itself. When you take off your shoes, you will remove all fasteners, your wishes, and activities. Put on your shoes and forget about the remaining 23 hours. 

It may not be easy to sit with a clear head and calmly. Therefore, Osho’s meditation techniques often start with action or catharsis. You can be angry, sad, or worried. So, why not start screaming, dancing, or letting go of anger?


Osho Dynamic Meditation uses actions and mantras to encourage catharsis. 

Meditation, awareness, observation-everything is related to passivity, but when your mind is overwhelmed by thoughts, emotions, anger, and desires, how can you be passive? You can not. You cannot close them because you must eliminate these barriers. Once this happens, meditation becomes easy, and the world of Taoism can be revealed. 

The first one is called Dynamic Osho Meditation. It lasts one hour and is divided into five stages. The first three stages last for 10 minutes, and the last two stages last for 15 minutes. 

The first stage is chaotic breathing. Chaotic breathing and exercise are valuable tools for boosting energy and improving body awareness. Breathe quickly and quickly through your nose. touching! Phew! … “This is a relief. It should make you completely tired and ready for the next step. 

At the beginning of the fourth stage, you fix your position entirely. But don’t move, don’t blink, don’t cough. If you feel itchy, please don’t scratch yourself. Observe. Pay attention to your body and mind. Let all the energy generated in the first two steps move upwards. Don’t move, only 15 minutes of silent witness. 

The end of the scene is a celebration. Dance, turn on the music, express your joy and gratitude, and maintain this positive attitude for the rest of the day.


There are several catharsis techniques in Osho’s active meditation. 

The following is Osho Kundalini meditation, considered the sister meditation of the previous blink dynamics. This meditation consists of four stages. Each stage is 15 minutes. 

In Kundalini meditation, the first stage is shaking and letting go. Shake every part of your body and let your energy rise from your feet. The second stage is Dance. Dance freely and move around according to your body’s needs. Don’t let your thoughts interfere—the third layer: silence. Sit or stand, but stay still, close your eyes, and observe what is happening inside and outside your body. Close your eyes and lie down. 

Many people find that dancing and free body movement are great ways to activate energy and release tensions and emotions that may hinder meditation and consciousness. In fact, in Osho Nataraj, Dance becomes a kind of meditation. Meditation. 

This technique lasts one hour, and the first stage includes a 40-minute dance. You close your eyes and Dance with excitement. There are no controlled movements, only smooth and exciting dances. You don’t need to be aware here. It would help if you stayed in the present. 

The second stage takes 20 minutes. Close your eyes and lie down. Keep quiet and calm. Next is a five-minute party and express your joy. 

At last, the Osho Nadabrahma’s meditation. Traditionally this is done in the early morning, but you can practice meditation at any time. However, fasting is recommended. 

The first round is 30 minutes. You start in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and then make a buzzing sound loud enough for others to hear. Let this hum create a vibration that vibrates and bounces in your body as if you are hollow. Let the buzzing be a listener effortlessly. 

The second stage consists of two parts. Each quarter is seven and a half minutes. In the first part, you place your palms on your belly button and move them in a circular motion. Pass your energy to the world. For the second part, place the palm down and turn the circle to meet the belly button. Feel the power of the universe being absorbed. 

Then stay quiet for 15 minutes.


You can bring meditation into any part of your waking life. 

You can meditate on anything. If you are not performing these activities on autopilot, running and swimming may be a powerful meditation. If you do it automatically, it’s not meditation. You must be careful with every movement. 

The author even helps men quit smoking, turning the process of tobacco into meditation. Every action is stretched. Take out a cigarette from the bag, tap the cigarette butt, light it, and inhale the smoke. Meditation is non-automatic. After three months, this habit was abandoned. 

It is a secret. By raising awareness and automatically stopping doing or thinking, we can eliminate the bad habits accumulated over the years. 

If you have heard of meditation, you may have heard of paying attention to breathing. Breathing can be a bridge to the benefits of meditation. There is a technique called Vipassana, which is probably the most helpful meditation because, as the author puts it, it is “pure essence.” 

Vipassana handles consciousness. Pay attention to how you move your body, how you put food in your mouth when you eat. How are you? When emotions, feelings, and emotions appear, could you pay attention to them? Don’t judge. Don’t interfere, be careful. 

Then pay attention to your breathing. When you inhale and exhale, do you move your chest or abdomen? In most Western cultures, men breathe through the chest cavity. The width of the chest is good, and the protruding belly is terrible, but this is not the case in Japan. Looking at the Big Buddha in Japan, I will never get tired of it with a small chest and a big stomach. No matter who you are, when you are relaxed and about to fall asleep, you breathe from your belly, not your chest. And be careful. Do you feel more natural and comfortable? 

Another technique you can use at any time is awareness and relaxation at the same time. You are systematically examining every part of your body, from your face to your feet. Tighten the muscles for a few minutes at each step. Orgasm in a few seconds, then relax the muscles. We can endure the stress of a whole day without even realizing it. This simple exercise will help you break this habit.


Meditating in extreme light and darkness, as well as simply listening, can help you become a watcher.

We live in a world of polarities – happiness and sadness, darkness and light. There’s no avoiding it. Meditation raises the awareness of these extremities and their temporal nature and direct relationship to one another. You can’t have darkness without light or happiness without sadness. But, happiness and sadness don’t last. None of these things are eternal. Only watching is endless. Only being is infinite.

Both light and darkness can teach us a great deal. Try this: Lie down under a bright, cloudless sky. Stare up at the vast blueness. Don’t blink. If you can, just let your eyes water, but don’t blink. And don’t think about the sky, be aware. Feel the barrier dissolve. Be the sky.

You can do this with darkness as well. Ideally, do this in absolute darkness, far away from city lights. Do it in the kind of darkness you’d find on a mountain on a starless night. Stare into the darkness. It is easier than it sounds. It can feel disorienting and strange to have your eyes open with nothing to focus on. But keep staring into the darkness. Let your eyes water and feel uncomfortable. You’ll begin to feel the separation dissolve. You’ll become one with the night.

It is good. We think of light as positive and darkness as unfavorable, but darkness is a time of rejuvenation in the universe. Time in the morning is full of effort. When darkness falls, we can regain our strength.

Even the simple acts of sitting and listening can change the way we live. These acts are fundamental Zen practices. There’s no benefit to this if you sit for an hour today. But if you keep doing it, day after day, for a few months, you’ll be on your way to godliness, since sitting without doing anything is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

But try it. This exercise can work no matter where you’re sitting, but the best thing to do would be to sit without any visual distractions. For simplicity’s sake, you can sit facing a plain white wall that’s only an arm’s length away. Do this for 30 minutes, and remain alert and aware while never focusing on anything in particular.


Think about the obstacles to meditation. 

Osho’s meditation technique is not complex, but it may be a problem for some people. The mind wants difficult things. You want to focus on a problem to find a solution. They don’t believe in simple answers. In front of the wall? , Dance? , How does this help? 

The mind is beautiful, but it can also interfere with enlightenment. The mind controls the ego. Self tells us to be productive, earn money, gain status, not learn how to do it. Don’t do anything. Doing nothing violates society’s teachings, so self and small talk are the two biggest obstacles to meditation. 

Meditation is full of contradictions because there is a paradox in every truth. Meditation is passive, but it also gains control. Your mind is now under control. Your ego is in control: your ambition, your obsession. , Your mood, thoughts, and feelings-they control your life create tension disturb the peace, relaxation, and happiness. 

It doesn’t make sense to say that one can gain control by being passive as an observer, but this is how meditation works. Through conscious observation, you will learn not to give in to anger and temporary emotions. You will be the master of your life. 

Even when you realize the importance of breaking your ego and starting to practice meditation, you may not know how to deal with a chattering mind. Every time you try to sit down and concentrate on your mind, constant thoughts, emotions, and thoughts, emotions and frustrations will attack you. It is natural, and you can relax, knowing that it will take time for most people. Many meditators sit for months or even years before believing that they have learned to listen. 

It can help you meditate while thinking about love. There is no word of love. If you fell in love with someone, how would you describe it? Meditation is simply because the observer has no language. The observer does not judge or define things; the observer is easy. Once the words start to work, you stop watching. You get in the way. So think about love. You can even imagine having no mind, receiving with an open heart and a lot of light-this is where meditation is.
