Publisher Comments:

Osho's words on the discipline of meditation.

Meditation is an adventure, the greatest adventure the human mind can undertake. Meditation is just to be, not doing anything--no action, no thought, no emotion. You just are and it is a sheer delight. From where does this delight come when you are not doing anything? It comes from nowhere, or it comes from everywher. It is uncaused, because existence is made of the stuff called joy!

Meditation is not an Indian method; it is not simply a technique. You cannot learn it. It is a growth: a growth of your total living, outo f your total living. Meditation is not something that can be added to you as you are. It cannot be added to you; it can only come to you through a basic transformation, a mutation. It is a flowering, a growth. Growth is always from the total' it is not an addition. Just like love, it cannot be added to you.

It grows out of you, out of your totality.

You must grow toward meditation.

Synopsis:

Meditation is indigenous to all religions. Here are 63 step-by-step guides to both ancient and modern techniques.

The Cloud of Unknowing, the third eye, Nirvana, peace: the way to understand and experience these states is through discipline of the mind and body, study, and courage. Meditation is a practical guide explaining techniques to attain these exalted states and find peace. From ancient Buddhist, Taoist, Sufi, and Hindu practices to Osho's own modern Dynamic Meditation and Mystic Rose Meditation, these methods will help any spiritual seeker further along the path to fulfillment.

"There are one hundred and twelve methods of meditation. I have talked on all of those methods. They differ in their constitution though the fundamentals remain the same: Relaxation, watchfulness, a non-judgemental attitude".
