Osho has often spoken about the 112 methods of meditation given by Shiva to his consort, Devi. VIGYANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA contains the complete series of discourses given by Osho on all these meditation techniques, and his responses to questions raised by seekers about the meditations. In the first discourse of the series, Osho suggests:

"Really, when you try the right method it clicks immediately. So I will go on talking about methods here every day. You try them. Just play with them - go home and try... And these methods are simple, you can just play with them.

Take one method and play with it for at least three days. If it gives you a certain feeling of affinity, if it gives you a certain feeling of well-being, if it gives you a certain feeling that this is for you, then be serious about it. Then forget the others, do not play with other methods. Stick to it - at least three months. Miracles are possible. The only thing is that the technique must be for you".
