This hour-long track is specifically designed to support the OSHO Mandala 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 is another powerful technique that creates a circle of energy, resulting in a natural centering. There are four stages of 15 minutes each.
The most comprehensive guide available to all the Osho Active Meditations, plus a variety of other techniques offered at the Osho Meditation Resort in India, and at Osho meditation events around the world. “The first upgrade to meditation since Buddha’s time.” Published in the USA by St. Martin’s Press the book has been re-issued in a more compact and portable format. In addition to dozens of meditation techniques, the book is an invaluable resource for meditators with Osho responses to questions people have encountered along the way.
“The mind is a mandala, a circle. If you watch, you become aware of the vicious circle of the mind. Again and again it brings the same emotions – the same anger, the same hatred, the same greed, the same ego. And you are just a victim. Becoming aware of the mind, you break the circle, you are no more identified with the mind.” ~Osho
How to practice Osho Mandala Meditation:
First Stage – 15 minutes – With open eyes run on the spot, starting slowly and gradually. Bring your knees up as high as possible. Breathing deeply and evenly will move the energy within. Forget the mind and forget the body. Keep going.
Second Stage – 15 minutes – Sit with your eyes closed and mouth open and loose. Gently rotate your body from the waist, like a reed blowing in the wind. Feel the wind blowing you from side to side, back and forth, around and around. This will bring your awakened energies to the navel center.
Third Stage – 15 minutes – Lie on your back, open your eyes and, with the head still, rotate your eyes in a clockwise direction. Sweep them fully around in the sockets as if you are following the second hand of a vast clock, but as fast as possible. It is important that the mouth remains open and the jaw relaxed, with the breath soft and even. This will bring your centered energies to the third eye.
Fourth Stage – 15 minutes – Close your eyes and be still.
