Osho says to Drop the old ideas of meditation - that just sitting underneath a tree in a yoga posture is meditation. That is only one of the ways, and it may be suitable for a few people but it is not suitable for all.. In Osho’s words ‘Meditation is a quality, it can be brought to anything . It is not a specific act.So if you can keep alert, any activity is meditation.Walking, walk slowly, watchfully. Looking, look watchfully, and you will see trees are greener than they have ever been. Listen, listen attentively. When you are talking, talk attentively. Let your whole waking activity become deautomatized.’ Whatsoever you do with awareness is meditation. Meditation helps you to grow your own intuitive faculty.Meditation is witnessing. To meditate means to become a witness.
Osho also says that techniques / methods are just to bridge the gap. Methods are dangerous only if one is unaware, otherwise they can be used beautifully.
Buddha used to tell a story again and again: Five idiots passed through a village carrying a boat on their heads. They said ‘We cannot leave this boat. This is the boat that helped us to come from the other shore to this shore. We will carry it on our heads in sheer gratitude’.It is just a raft to be used and discarded, used and abandoned, used and never looked back at again; there is no need, no point Methods and techniques are just like this raft which one should be aware enough to abandon, on reaching the other shore.
Osho’s responses to questions about meditation are included in the last part of the book. A few of his observations:
Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy.
Whereever sinners go, they create hell and whereever saints go, they create heaven.
If someone else can make you happy and unhappy, you are not a master. You are just a slave.
This book will definitely serve as a useful guide for all those who are interested in meditation.
A must read for seeker.
