OSHO Chakra Sounds Meditation®
Music by Karunesh
This hour-long album is specifically designed to support the OSHO Chakra Sounds 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 meditation uses vocal sounds made during meditation along with music to open and harmonize the chakras while bringing awareness to them. The meditation can bring you into deep, peaceful, inner silence either through making your own vocal sounds or by just listening to and feeling the sounds within you. This meditation can be done at any time.
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.
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.

First Stage – 45 minutes – Stand, sit comfortably, or lie down if you prefer. Keep your back straight and your body loose. Breathe into your belly rather than your chest. The sounds should be made with your mouth open and your jaw loose, keeping your mouth open the whole time.
Close your eyes and listen to the music. If you wish start making sounds in the first chakra. You can make a single tone or vary the tone. Let the music guide you; however you can be creative with your own sounds. While listening to the sound of the music or the sounds that you make, feel the sound pulsating in the very center of your chakra, even if it seems to be imagination at first.
Osho has suggested that we can use the imagination in “becoming attuned to something that is already there.” So keep doing the meditation even if it feels like you may be imagining the chakras. With awareness your imagination can lead you to an experience of the inner vibration of each center. When the music changes, listen, feel and make sounds in the second chakra. This process is repeated up to the seventh chakra, the sounds becoming higher in pitch each time.
After listening to and making sounds in the seventh chakra, the tones will descend one at a time down through all the chakras. As you hear the tones go down, listen and make sounds in each chakra. Feel the inside of your body becoming hollow like a bamboo flute, allowing the sounds to resonate from the top of your head down to the very base of your trunk.
At the end of the sequence, you will hear a pause before the next sequence starts. This upward and downward movement of sound will be repeated three times for a total of approximately 45 minutes.
Second Stage – 15:15 – After the last sound sequence, sit or lie down in silence with closed eyes. Remain in silence and don’t focus on anything in particular. Allow yourself to become aware of and watch whatever is happening within. Be relaxed and remain a witness without judgement.
Total Time: 59:01
