Devavani means “divine voice,” the energy of existence which moves through the meditator, who becomes an empty channel of expression.
Devavani meditation lasts for one hour. There are four stages of 15 minutes each. Keep your eyes closed throughout. If done in the evening, it deeply relaxes the mind and creates a profound sleep and inner peace.
“When the unconscious speaks, the unconscious knows no language. It is a very, very old method. It comes from the Old Testament. It was called in those days glossolalia, and a few churches in America still use it. They call it “speaking in tongues.” And it is a wonderful method, one of the most deep and penetrating into the unconscious. You start with “la, la, la” and then you can go on with anything that comes. Just for the first day you will feel it a little difficult. Once it comes, you know the knack of it. Then for fifteen minutes, use the language that is coming to you, and use it as a language; in fact you are talking in it. These fifteen minutes will relax the conscious mind so deeply, and then you just simply lie down and go to sleep. Your sleep will become deeper. Within weeks you will feel a depth in your sleep, and in the morning you will feel completely fresh.” - An excerpt from OSHO: Yoga: The Mystery Beyond Mind #6
