The following is taken from the book “Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy by Osho”.
I think Osho Gourishankar Meditation is a difficult meditation to try. This is one of the few Osho meditations that I have not tried.
Osho has said that if we do the breathing correctly in the first stage of this meditation, we will get so much oxygen in our blood-stream that we will feel as high as if we were on the top of Gourishankar (Mount Everest).
The meditation is in four parts. Each part is fifteen minutes long.
Sit with your eyes closed and inhale as deeply as you can through the nose. Hold the breath for as long as you can, then exhale gently through the mouth. Hold the exhalation until you can’t hold it any longer and then breathe in again through the nose. Repeat this for fifteen minutes.
Return to normal breathing and stare at a candle flame or a flashing light. If possible, use a blue strobe light. Let your gaze be soft and gentle, as if you are looking lovingly at someone. Keep your body still.
Stand up, close your eyes, let Latihan happen. In Latihan you let your body be soft and loose and soon subtle energies will be felt moving inside the body. Allow those energies to move your body – slowly, gently. Don’t you do the moving; let the moving move you.
These first three stages are accompanied by music – a combination of soothing background music and a steady beat that is seven times as fast as a normal heartbeat. (The first sound that we ever hear is the sound of our mother’s heart.) The fourth stage is done in total silence.
Lie down in silence and remain perfectly still.
