Osho - "Meditation is not a social revolution, it is an individual revolution."

Osho - "Remember, only that which you can take with you when you leave the body is important. That means, except meditation, nothing is important. Except awareness, nothing is important, because only awareness cannot be taken away by death. Everything else will be snatched away, because everything else comes from without.

Only awareness wells up within . That cannot be taken away. And the shadows of awareness - compassion, love - they cannot be taken away. They are intrinsic parts of awareness. You will be taking with you only whatsoever awareness you have attained. That is your only real wealth."

"A searching mind is a tense mind. A seeking mind is not at rest. A desiring mind is not at home...always wandering, wandering, going somewhere. If I come to you, do you think I will find you there?You may be somewhere else. You are always somewhere else. Wherever you seem to be, you arenot there. If you are sitting in the temple, your appearance only is in the temple. You may be in the market. You may be in the shop or in the factory or in the office. When you are sitting in your office or in your shop, only your appearance is there – you appear to be there. Your mind may be anywhere; the world is vast. You are never where you are. Just be there. Wherever you are, be there. This is the door to the divine and the divine enters in you.


Begin to be aware of anything

which ordinarily happens unconsciously,

for example - anger, jealousy, pride -

and your consciousness will be deepened.


Act consciously,

even in day-to-day acts be conscious,

for example - walking, eating, talking -

and your consciousness will be expanded.


Be alert when thinking.

No thought should be allowed to pass unwitnessed.


And then, in the end, there is explosion

in which you become totally conscious

with no unconsciousness behind." Osho

    A beautiful event where Swami Vedant introduced what is meant by meditation and how one can prepare oneself for being in meditation in our daily life. After the talk (in Hindi) we did the Om meditation in the temple and then heard a short Osho audio. The Osho audio selection had to be changed last minute to fit the available time and turns out the "random" selection was on the Holi festival which was being celebrated that weekend. A pleasent surprise. A wonderful gathering. Thank you to Jaidevji, Swami Vedant and Temple management.
