this technique consists of four stages of 15 minutes each. the first
two stages prepare the meditator for the spontaneous latihan
of the third stage. osho has said that if the breathing is
done correctly in the first stage the carbon dioxide
formed in the bloodstream will make you feel as
high as gourishankar (mt. everest).
first stage: 15 minutes
sit with closed eyes. inhale deeply
through the nose, filling the lungs. hold
the breath for as long as possible, then
exhale gently through the mouth and
keep the lungs empty for as long as
possible. continue this breathing
cycle throughout the first stage.
second stage: 15 minutes
return to normal breathing and
with a gentle gaze look at a candle
flame or a flashing blue light. keep
your body still.
third stage: 15 minutes
with closed eyes, stand up and let
your body be loose and receptive.
the subtle energies will be felt to
move the body outside your normal
control. allow this latihan to happen.
don’t you do the moving: let moving
happen, gently and gracefully.
fourth stage: 15 minutes
lie down with closed eyes, silent and still.
the first three stages should be accompanied by
a steady rhythmic beat, preferably combined with a
soothing background music. the beat should be seven
times the normal heartbeat and, if possible, the flashing light
should be a synchronized strobe.
