Večerní setkání s Osho
FOR ENGLISH SCROLL DOWN
The evening meeting is the time when everyone comes together to dance and celebrate and then to sit silently.
First part: 20 minutes:
The meditation starts with 20 minutes of high energy celebration where everybody is invited to participate and dance with totality.
It reaches its climax with three shouts „Osho, Osho, Osho“. In this context „Osho“ is used as a sound, which helps to raise the energy even higher. He says of the word Osho, „It is not my name, it is a healing sound derived from William James‘ ‚oceanic.'“
Second part: 10 minutes:
This is followed by 10 minutes of sitting silently with closed eyes. With Soft Indian music and silence. The more totality is brought to the celebration, the deeper the silence will go.
During this time music alternates with silence, which is ended by three loud drumbeats.
Third part: 40 – 50 minutes:
The silent sitting then continues with Osho discourse.
The essential function of the Osho talks is to provide an easily accessible way of learning this art of listening. An opportunity to experience, „silence with no effort,“ the key to bringing sharpened awareness to your daily life. Whether you want to listen quietly at home, or while commuting to work, or sitting in the park, never has meditation been more simple, or more widely available to anyone anywhere. Once you have selected an Osho talk, make yourself comfortable, relax and, in your own time, allow your eyes to close.
Forth part: 15 – 20 minutes: Gibberish and Let-Go
First Stage: Gibberish
While sitting, close your eyes and begin to say nonsense sounds – any sounds or words, so long as they make no sense. Just speak any language that you don’t know! Allow yourself to express whatever needs to be expressed within you. Throw everything out. The mind thinks, always, in terms of words. Gibberish helps to break up this pattern of continual verbalization. Without suppressing your thoughts, you can throw them out. Let your body likewise be expressive.
Second Stage: Moving In
After some minutes of Gibberish, there is a drumbeat, at which point the Gibberish stops. Osho’s voice then guides the listener into a space of deep silence, stillness and relaxation, saying, for example, “Be silent, close your eyes…no movement of the body – feel frozen. Go inwards, deeper and deeper, just like an arrow. Penetrate all the layers and hit the center of your existence.”
Third Stage: Let-Go
Another drumbeat and, without arranging yourself, just allow yourself to fall down „like a bag of rice,“ so you are lying, utterly still and relaxed, on your back as you are guided even more deeply into a silent stillness.
Fourth Stage: Coming Back
At the final drumbeat, Osho’s voice guides you back to a sitting position, with the reminder to carry the glimpse of silent awareness one may have had into everyday activities.
Fifth part: 5 – 30 minutes: Celebration with dance
