OSHO Gibberish Meditation

About the meditation:

Gibberish is one of the most scientific ways to clean your mind. This is a cathartic technique which encourages expressive sounds and body movements, followed by a deep merging or a silent relaxation.

Instructions:

The meditation lasts 30 minutes and has two stages.

For the second stage two options are given and you can choose whichever fits best in the moment.

First Stage: 15 minutes

Either alone or in a group, close your eyes and start to say whatever needs to be expressed within you – everything that you ever wanted to say and have not been able to say because of civilization, education, culture, society. Just do it totally, enthusiastically. Anything that is moving in your mind, throw it out. Just avoid the language that you know. If you don’t know Chinese, say it in Chinese! Use Japanese if you don’t know Japanese. Don’t use German if you know German.

Bring out all your craziness in rubbish, gibberish, sounds, gestures. Simply allow whatever comes to your mind without bothering about its rationality, reasonability, meaning, significance. For the first time have a freedom – the same as all the birds have.

The mind always thinks in terms of words. Gibberish helps to break this pattern of continual verbalization. Don’t be bothered whether it is Arabic or Hebrew or Chinese, you are allowed to speak any language that you don’t know. Just avoid the language that you do know, because the language that you do know will not bring your nonsense out. Without suppressing your thoughts, you can throw them out – in gibberish. And likewise, let your body be expressive.

Be sincere, make it a reality. Just go crazy.

Second Stage: 15 minutes - Option-1

Lie down on your stomach and feel as if you are merging with Mother Earth. With each exhalation, feel yourself merging with the ground beneath you.

This will gather your awakened energies at the navel center.

Second Stage: 15 minutes - Option-2

Silently relax – sitting, with closed eyes, watching the inner sky.

Osho explains about this meditation:

“I am dealing with the contemporary man, who is the most restless being that has ever evolved on the earth. But people do become silent; you just have to allow them to throw out their madness, insanity, then they themselves become silent.”
