|Why Active Meditation?
– by Maneesha James
We may understand the need to minimize stress and to unwind...But to sit down for twenty minutes, to close our eyes and attempt to still our incessant thoughts...and restless body...
|Returning to Our Roots.
Consciousness must be pushed down to the source, to the roots.
Only then is there the possibility of transformation.
|Movement to Still the Bodymind.
...Only then, in a deep catharsis, can you fall down to inactivity and can have a glimpse of the world that is not of activity.
|Methods For America
Passive methods cannot help America. They may give a little solace, consolation, but finally they will prove to be like tranquilizers, nothing more.
|Meditation: The Good News and the Bad.

|Trying to be a Buddha Can Drive You Barmy.
I never tell people to begin with just sitting. Otherwise you will begin to feel many things unnecessarily... things that are not there.
|Meditation...or Mind Fluff?
Q: Lots of times when I'm meditating, I get scientific information more advanced than what we have here.
I see things like UFOs and new sources of power, and many things like this that come through all the time.
| The Discovery of the Active Meditations.
Someone has asked, "Osho, I have three questions to ask you. How did you discover Kundalini meditation?"
The first question. Simple: Meditating down by the river on a hill of red ants!
The second: "And Dynamic?"
That is even simpler. It was almost impossible not to discover it. I came upon it driving on Indian roads in Indian cars!
And third: "What about Nadabrahma?"...
