♦ Description : “Meditation is not a spiritual discipline separate from everyday life. It is simply the art of being attentive to what is happening in us and outside of us. This book contains Osho teachings presented in a practical, step-by-step way. A wide range of meditation techniques specially selected by Osho, adapted to each moment of life. In particular, Osho’s Dynamic Meditation and Osho’s Kundalini Meditation will allow the body to take action and awaken the spirit. The energies are thus in harmony. An essential text to begin or deepen the joys of meditation. The only teaching of meditation since the time of Buddha.”
“Rajneesh Chandra Mohan Jain, best known in the 1960s as Acharya Rajneesh, then in the 1970s and 1980s as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and finally taking the name of Osho, was an Indian spiritual master. From his earliest childhood, he is independent and unconventional; he refuses the transmission of knowledge without experiencing it himself. Very curious, he reads a lot, especially the Bible.
He made brilliant university studies (aggregation of philosophy in 1953) and in 1957 he became a professor in two universities, while giving lectures. From 1966, he travels all over India, exposing his views on religious systems and human psychology. He moved to Bombay in 1968 where his followers organized an ashram in 1970 and Poona in 1974.
In 1981, Osho Rajneesh decided to settle in the United States (what sages of India, Yogananda, Krishnamurti for example, did before him), in Antelope in Oregon, in a former ranch, which will soon become a city of 5000 inhabitants (a small airport is even built).
Following various scandals that he neglected to avoid, Osho Rajneesh was arrested in October 1985 for failure to comply with immigration legislation, persecuted and expelled for derisory reasons. He finally returned to India in July 1986. The Poona Ashram was reopened six months later and Osho Rajneesh personally conducted talks and meditations that attracted thousands of people.”
