OSHO No Mind
OSHO No Mind Meditative Therapy is a powerful process, happening within the energy of a group and it was designed by OSHO for contemporary people.
The process was created to help us free our repressed energy, renew our vitality and, ultimately, create space for silence. It works on an energy level by-passing the conscious, analytical mind and it is a moment-to-moment encounter with oneself.
It is a 7-day process, which includes one hour of Gibberish followed by one hour of silent sitting – silent watching.
The first part is gibberish. The word ‚gibberish‘ comes from a Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar never spoke any language, he just uttered nonsense. Still he had thousands of disciples because what he was saying was, „Your mind is nothing but gibberish. Put it aside and you will have a taste of your own being.“
To use gibberish, don’t say things which are meaningful, don’t use the language that you know. Use Chinese, if you don’t know Chinese. Use Japanese if you don’t know Japanese. Don’t use German if you know German. For the first time have a freedom – the same as all the birds have. Simply allow whatever comes to your mind without bothering about its rationality, reasonability, meaning, significance – just the way the birds are doing.
For the first part, leave language and mind aside. Out of this will arise the second part, a great silence in which you have to close your eyes and freeze your body, all its movements, gather your energy within yourself.
Remain here and now.
Zen cannot be understood in any other way.
Gibberish should be taught to every person.
The world will become saner if you can simply sit in your room and talk loudly to nobody in particular for one hour.
In the beginning, it will look crazy. It is! But it will relieve you of much heat, steam, and after one hour you will feel tremendously quiet.
