OSHO Gourishankar Meditation

This technique, for the night, consists of four stages of fifteen minutes each.

First Stage – 15 minutes: Sit with closed eyes. Inhale deeply through the nose, filling the lungs. Hold the breath for as long as possible; then exhale gently through the mouth, and keep the lungs empty for as long as possible. Continue this breathing cycle throughout this stage.

Second Stage – 15 minutes: Return to normal breathing and with a gentle gaze look at a candle flame or a flashing blue light. Keep your body still.

Third Stage – 15 minutes: With closed eyes, stand up and let your body be loose and receptive. Allow your body to move gently in whichever way it wants. Don’t do the moving, just allow it to happen gently and gracefully.

Fourth Stage – 15 minutes: Lie down with closed eyes, silent and still.
