This hour-long track is specifically designed to support the OSHO Gourishankar meditation. The music supports the energy and activity described in each stage of the meditation, and also signals the timing of each stage.
A silent stage is part of most Osho Active Meditations, and when the meditation ends with silence it will be concluded with a bell or gong.
This technique, for the nighttime, consists of four stages of fifteen 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 (Mount Everest).
How to Practice Osho Gourishankar Active Meditation
Osho Active Meditations combine certain activities like shaking, dancing, jumping, humming and others to lead into silence and meditation. Music is used as a background for all these meditations. A final stage of 15 minutes of silence completes the meditation and a gong signals the end. A complete CD download includes also the silent stage with one of the tracks being mostly silence with a signal at the end – this is part of the experience.
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 gently through the mouth, and keep the lungs empty for as long as possible. Continue this breathing cycle throughout this stage.
