Osho World:Meditation Zone



What is the purpose of the Osho talks?

Osho often explains that his basic purpose in speaking is to provide an opportunity for his listeners to experience meditation. In this way, these talks are unique. They are basically an experiment, and the listeners are the experimenters. He also makes it clear that this experience does not depend on his physical presence. 

Just as he proposes Active Meditations as bridge to help restless modern people enjoy a taste of meditation, so too, he is using his own speaking as way of solving the oldest dilemma in the history of meditation--how to experience alertness with no effort. 

Meditation is often taught as something you "do" for a certain length of time a day...a bit like church on Sundays. Osho has something to say about that too. Osho explains that his voice is simply a device to allow us to learn to listen, at which point....

And the final point on the path that never ends, there remains Osho's eternal proposal to everyone.
