Osho was an Indian mystic who contributed enormously to human spirituality. He created fourteen active meditations, among them Dynamic Meditation, one of the most revolutionary and transformative meditations in existence. In addition he created four meditative therapies:
- Osho No-Mind, Mystic Rose, Rebirth and Remembering the Forgotten Language of Talking to the Body-Mind.
- Mystic Rose
- Remembering the Forgotten Language of Talking to the Body-Mind
There are over six thousand hours of audio and video of Osho speaking in his discourses, mostly in Pune, India from the 1970s to 1989, on the science of meditation, spiritual quest, love, power and the meaning of the Self. Osho had a very peculiar way of talking about the contribution of the various spiritualities and religions of the world to the evolution and potential of the human being as he covered religions from Zen, Taoism and Buddhism to Christianity, Sufism and Hinduism coming clearly to the essence of religion - to love ourselves and be so aware that we are liberated from all our limitations - imposed and self-imposed.
Osho also spoke of a new human being, Zorba the Buddha - a person who, Zorba the Greek, enjoys all earthly pleasures, is creative, sensual and takes care of the material world, while being centred and having the awareness, silence and presence of Guautama Buddha. This philosophy is very similar to that of Friedrich Nietzsche's "Superhuman" (Übermensch), who said [that the Superhuman] was the meaning of the Earth. Carl Jung, in psychological terms, described it as the process of individuation by which a person crystallised as a sovereign, self, not a dispersed, pathological entity. George Gurdjieff called this process the process of remembering oneself in order to awaken from the "mechanicity" and automatism in which one is.
Osho's techniques are very practical, safe and effective to get out of the automatism of which Gurdjieff spoke and with fresh energy enter a natural state of meditation.
