About Osho Kundalini Meditation
This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.
Osho on How to Shake:
"If you are doing the kundalini meditation, allow the shaking – don't do it! Stand silently, feel it coming, and when your body starts a little trembling, help it, but don't do it! Enjoy it, feel blissful about it, allow it, receive it, welcome it, but don't will it.
"If you force, it will become an exercise, a bodily physical exercise. Then the shaking will be there, but just on the surface. It will not penetrate you. You will remain solid, stonelike, rocklike within. You will remain the manipulator, the doer, and the body will only be following. The body is not the question, you are the question.
"When I say shake, I mean your solidity, your rocklike being should shake to the very foundations, so it becomes liquid, fluid, melts, flows. And when the rocklike being becomes liquid your body will follow. Then there is no shaker, only shaking; then nobody is doing it, it is simply happening. Then the doer is not.
"Enjoy it, but don't will it. And remember, whenever you will a thing you cannot enjoy it. They are reverse, opposites; they never meet. If you will a thing you cannot enjoy it, if you enjoy it you cannot will it." Osho

Laugh your way to God
Swami Chaitanya Keerti
Down the centuries religion has been very serious affair for most of the believers. It was too ritualistic and grim. Being pious or holy became synonymous with seriousness. Hence, the so-called religion deprived people of their natural innocent laughter. By performing so many rituals people became egoistic, the priests and the religious followers started feeling holier than others. This conduct made them hypocrites and serious. Gradually, the whole affair of religion became heavy and serious and most of the people have been living with that burden on their heart. They forgot to laugh and celebrate.
Osho observed all this and said: “All over the world, sadness has become so prominent. And temples and churches don’t look festive, they don’t give a sense of celebration. Religion cannot be anything other than a celebration of life... A man too much burdened by theories becomes serious. A man who is unburdened, has no burden of theories over his being, starts laughing.”
Osho introduced laughter as a process unburdening the conditioned mind. During one of his discourses on the Akshya Upanishad, he explained the significance of laughter in human life: There are three types of laughter. The first is when you laugh at someone else. This is the meanest, the lowest, the most ordinary and vulgar. This is the violent, the aggressive, the insulting type. Deep down in this laughter there is always a feeling of revenge.
The second type of laughter is when you laugh at yourself. This is worth achieving. This is cultured. And a man who can laugh at himself is valuable. He has risen above vulgarity. He has risen above lowly instincts — hatred, aggression, violence.
And the third is the last — the highest. This is not about anybody neither the other nor oneself. The third is just cosmic. You laugh at the whole situation as it is. The whole situation of existence is such that if you can see the whole — such a great infinite vastness moving toward no fixed purpose, no goal — laughter will arise. So much is going on without leading anywhere; nobody is there in the past to create it; nobody is there in the end to finish it. Such is whole cosmos. If you can see this whole cosmos, then laughter is inevitable.
Laughter as meditation: This is a five-minute morning meditation, one could do it as the first thing in the morning and it will create undercurrents of happiness for rest of the day. Every morning upon waking, before opening your eyes, stretch like a cat. Stretch every fibre of your body. After three or four minutes, with eyes still closed, begin to laugh. For five minutes just laugh. At first you will be doing it, but soon the sound of your attempt will cause genuine laughter. Lose yourself in laughter. It may take several days before it really happens, for we are so unaccustomed to the phenomenon. But before long it will be spontaneous and will change the whole nature of your day.”
The laughter relaxes. And relaxation is spiritual. Laughter brings you to the earth, brings you down from your stupid ideas of being holier-than-thou. Laughter brings you to reality as it is. The world is a play of God, a cosmic joke. And unless you understand it as a cosmic joke you will never be able to understand the ultimate mystery.
