OSHO BUDDHA HALL IN PUNE COMMUNE
The Self-Sufficient Meditator
"In Buddha's time, dynamic methods of meditation were not needed. People were more simple, more authentic. They lived a more real life. Now, people are living a very repressed life, a very unreal life. When they don't want to smile, they smile. When they want to be angry, they show compassion. People are false, the whole life pattern is false. People are just acting, not living. Many incomplete experiences go on being collected, piled up inside their minds."Just sitting directly in silence won't help. The moment you will sit silently, you will see all sorts of things moving inside you; you will feel it almost impossible to be silent. First throw those things out so you come to a natural state of rest. Real meditation starts only when you are at rest."Osho, The Discipline of Transcendence, Vol. 2, Chapter 5If you have questions about your meditation, and don't find an answer in the "Frequently Asked Questions," you can send an inquiry by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or better search the complete archive yourself.
