OSHO Gourishankar Meditation

This is a soft centering technique which works on the third eye. The meditation consists of four stages of 15 minutes each. 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)


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 very gently through the mouth, and keep the lungs empty for as long as possible. Continue this breathing throughout the first stage.

Second Stage: 15 Minutes

Return to normal breathing, keep your body still and relaxed in a sitting position and with your eyes open gaze softly at a candle flame or a flashing (strobe) blue light.
If you use the strobe blue light, the frequency of the flashes should be synchronized with the drumbeats of the music for this stage.from the CD (7 times the average heart beat).

Third Stage: 15 Minutes

With closed eyes, slowly get back on your feet with your body loose and receptive. Now move very gently and subtly in whichever way you want, the subtle energies within this “latihan” will move you from within, as if you are a puppet hanging from invisible strings and being pulled in different directions slowly and gracefully.

Fourth Stage: 15 Minutes

Close your eyes, lie down, doing nothing, be 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.
