The Path of Meditation


A Step to Step Guide to Meditation

Osho spreekt in The Path of Meditation de deelnemers aan zijn Meditatie camp in de vroege jaren ’70 in Mahabaleshwar toe als”My Beloved Ones”. Hij verwelkomt hen op die manier, omdat zij blijk geven van hun verlangen naar het goddelijke, naar de The Path of MeditationWaarheid.
Ondanks alle wereldse begeertes hebben zij ook die speciale spirituele dorst. Alleen al die dorst te ervaren is een grote zegen. Er zijn talloze mensen die deze niet voelen of er niet voor gaan om hem te lessen.
En ook als het kennen van de Waarheid voorlopig uitblijft, is de kans om het verlangen ernaar te beleven iets om niet mis te lopen.

The Path of Meditation is verkrijgbaar bij de Boekhandel.

“The culture that will arise in the future, if it is truly to be for the evolution of mankind, will be a balance of science and religion. This culture will be a synthesis of religion and science. It will not be only religious or only scientific: it will be either scientifically religious or religiously scientific.” Osho

Excerpt from The Path of Mediation

“I have said a few things to you about how to take steps towards samadhi: how to discipline yourself and take care of yourself, and how to sow the seeds which will grow into divine flowers. But if even just a few things stick to your mind, if even one seed falls into the soil of your heart, there is no reason why it should not sprout and give you the experience of a new life.

“Drop the desire to go on living your life in the same way as you have been living it. There is no meaning in it. Make space in your life for something new. If you go on living in the same way that you have been living, The Path of Meditationdeath will be the only outcome.

“This desire, this discontent must come alive in you. I have no other wish for you than this. Usually people say that religion is contentment. And I say that only religious people become discontented. Everything in life only creates discontent in them, and only then do they begin to look towards religion.

“So I don’t ask you to be contented. I don’t ask you to be satisfied. I ask you to be dissatisfied, to be utterly dissatisfied. Let every cell of your heart, of your soul be discontented – discontented for the divine, discontented for truth. In the fire of this discontent you will have a new birth.” Osho, The Path of Meditation
