This hour-long track is specifically designed to support the OSHO Nadabrahma 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.
Nadabrahma meditation lasts for one hour and has three stages. It is a sitting method, in which humming and hand movements create an inner balance, a harmony between mind and body. Suitable for any time of the day, have an empty stomach and remain inactive for at least fifteen minutes afterwards.
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.
“So in Nadabrahma, remember this: let the body and mind be totally together, but remember that you have to become a witness. Get out of them, easily, slowly, from the back door, with no fight, with no struggle. They are drinking – you get out, and watch from the outside…” ~Osho
How to Practice Osho Nadabrahma Active Meditation:
First Stage – 30 minutes – Sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed and lips together. Start humming, loud enough so that if you are doing it with others, you can be heard by them. You can visualize a hollow tube or vessel filled only with the vibrations of the humming. A point will come when the humming continues by itself and you become the listener. There is no special breathing, and you can alter the pitch, and move your body smoothly and slowly if you feel to.
Second Stage – 15 minutes – The second stage is divided into two segments, of seven and a half minutes each. For the first part, move the hands, palms upward, in an outward circular motion. Starting at the navel, both hands move forward and then separate to make two large circles mirroring each other left and right. The movement should be so slow that at times there will appear to be no movement at all. Feel that you are giving energy outward to the universe. After seven and a half minutes, the music will change and you turn your hands, palms downward, and start moving them in circles in the opposite direction. Now the hands will come together toward the navel and move apart outward, toward the side of the body. Feel that you are taking energy in. As in the first stage, don’t inhibit any soft, slow movements of the rest of your body.
Third Stage – 15 minutes – Sit or lie absolutely quiet and still.
