Back of the Book

Osho continues to inspire millions of people world wide in their individual search for joy fulfillment depth and silence. All his talks address the question of how we can live each moment in our daily lives in awareness relaxation and totality.

In the book of secrets we are invited to experience and experiment with the games and situations that everyday life brings through the tools of our senses. The 4000 year old Vigyan Bhairao Tantra is a compendium of highly condensed telegraphic instructions for 112 different awareness techniques that bring us into the present moment. Osho describes each technique in detail and explains how we can discover which is the best one for us and how to integrate it into our daily lives.

 

”These techniques if followed suddenly turn your mind.
It comes to the Present
And when the mind comes to the present it stops it is no more
You cannot be a mind in the present that is impossible.”

 

From the Jacket

“Life is a miracle.

If you have not known its mystery that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it.”

“How to be in the Present?

Shiva doesn’t say anything about it he simply gives a technique. You do it and suddenly you find you are here and now.

And your being here and now is the truth and your being here and now is the freedom and your being here and now is the Nirvana.”

 

About the Author

Osho defies categorization reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. His nooks are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty five years. Osho has been described by the Sunday Times in London as one of the 1000 makers if the 20th century and by Sunday Mid-day in India as one of the ten people along with Gandhi Nehru and Buddha who have changed the destiny of India.

Osho has a started aim of helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being characterized as Zorba the Buddha one whose feet are firmly on the ground yet whose hands can touch the stars. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the east and the highest potential of western science and technology.

He is synonymous with a revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation and an approach to meditation which specifically addresses the accelerated pace of contemporary life. The unique Osho Active meditation are designed to allow the release of accumulated stress in the body and mind so that it is easier to be still and experience the thought free state of meditation.

 

Preface

The question you have asked is certainly of great importance because meditation as such needs no technique at all. But techniques are needed to remove the obstacles in the way of meditation. So it has to be understood very clearly meditation itself needs no techniques it is a simple understanding - an alertness, an awareness. Neither is alertness a techniques nor is awareness a technique.

But on the way to being alert there are so many obstacles. For centuries man has been gathering those obstacles. They need to be removed. Meditation itself cannot remove them certain techniques are needed to remove them. So the work of the techniques is just to prepare the ground is just to prepare the way the passage. The techniques in themselves are not meditation. If you stop at the technique you have missed the point.

J. Krishnamurti was insisting his whole life that there is no technique for meditation. And the total result was not that millions of people attained to meditation the total result was that millions of people became convinced that no technique is needed for meditation. But they forgot all about what they were going to do with the obstructions the hindrances. So they remained intellectually convinced that no technique is needed. I have met many followers of J. Krishnamurti very intimate ones and I have asked them no techniques is needed I agree absolutely but has meditation happened to you or to anyone else who has been listening to J. Krishnamurti?

Although what he is saying is essentially true he is saying only the positive side of the experience. There is a negative side also. And for that negative side all kinds of techniques are needed are absolutely needed because unless the ground is well prepared and all the weeds and with roots and other beautiful flowers. Roses are in no way concerned with those roots with the wild plants that you have removed. But the removal of those weeds was absolutely necessary for the ground to be in a right situation where roses can blossom.

You are asking is it possible to meditate without any technique it is only possible it is the only possibility. No technique is needed at all as far as meditation is concerned but what are you gouing to do with your mind? Your mind will create a thousand and one difficulties. Those techniques are needed to remove the mind from the way to create a space in which the mind becomes quiet silent almost absent. Then meditation happens on its own accord. It is not a question of techniques. You don’t have to do anything.

Meditation is something natural something that is already hidden inside you and is trying to find its way to reach to the open sky to the sun to the air. But mind is surrounding if from all sides all doors are closed all windows are closed. The techniques are needed to open the windows to open the doors. And immediately the whole sky is available to you with all its stars with all its beauty with all its sunsets with all its sunrises.

Just a small window was preventing you just a small piece of straw can go into your eye and it will prevent you from seeing the vast sky because you cannot open your eyes. It is absolutely illogical that just a small piece of straw or sand can prevent you from seeing the great stars the infinite sky. But in fact they can they do.

Techniques are needed to remove those straws those pieces of sand from your eyes. And meditation is your nature is your very potential it is another name for alertness.

The young father taking his baby for a walk in the pram in the park seemed quite unperturbed by the wails emerging from the pram. Easy not Albert he said quietly keep calm there’s a good fellow.

Another how rang out. Now now Albert murmured the father keep your temper.

A young mother passing by remarked I must congratulate you. You certainly know how to speak to babies. Then patting the baby on the head she cooed what is bothering you Albert.

“No, no” cried the father his name is Johnnie I am Albert.

He was simply trying to keep himself alert Albert don’t lose your temper. He does not want to forget otherwise he would like to throw this baby into the lake.

Meditation is simply awareness without any effort an effortless alertness. It does not need any technique. But your mind is so full of thoughts so full of dreams so much of the past so much of the future it is not herenow and awareness has to be here now. The techniques are needed to help you to cut your roots from the past to cut your dreams from the future and to keep you in this moment as if only this moment exists. Then there is no need for any technique.

Hymie Goldberg was visiting his friend Mr. Cohen who was dying do us a favor said Hymie Goldberg when you go to heaven could you find a way of letting me know whether they play baseball up there?

Mr. Cohen said he would certainly try to contact his old friend if at all possible

Only a few days after Mr. Cohen died Hyme Goldberg had a phone call. Hello Hymie said Mr. Cohen it is your old friend here.

Cohen? Is it really you asked Hymie.

Sure answered his friend I have some good news and some bad news. First there sure a baseball in heaven. And the bad news is that you are Pitching next Sunday.

Life is a complicated affair. There is good news and there is bad news. The good new is that there is no need for any technique but the bad news is without any technique you are not going to get it.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
