Osho Nadabrahma Meditation
bring harmony to your whole being
“In Nadabrahma, remember this: let the body and mind be totally together, but remember that you have to become a witness. Get out of them, easily, slowly, from the back door, with no fight, with no struggle.” – Osho
Nadabrahma is based on an ancient Tibetan Buddhist technique which was originally done in the very early hours of the morning. It starts with humming that creates a gentle vibration throughout the body, followed by gentle hand movementsbefore moving into Stillness and Silence.
It is suggested that it should be done either at night before going to sleep or during the morning, when it should be followed by at least 15 minutes rest. It can be done alone with others of even at work. It is good done on an empty stomach with eyes closed otherwise the inner sound cannot go very deep. The whole meditation is in a sitting position.
Nadabrahma also is “the humming meditation”. Through humming and hand movements, conflicting parts of the practitioner start falling in tune, and it bring harmony to whole being. This helps to become a witness and watch from the outside.
Nadabrahma consists of 3 stages.
1st stage: Sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed, lips together. Begin to hum loudly enough to create a vibration throughout the entire body. It should be loud enough to be heard by others. You can alter pitch and inhale as you please and if the body moves allow it, providing that the movements are smooth and slow. Visualize your body as a hollow tube of an empty vessel filled only with the vibrations of the humming. A point will come where the humming occurs by itself and you become the listener. The brain is activated and every fibre cleansed. It is particularly useful in healing.
2nd stage: Move the hands, palms up, in a circular outward motion. The right hand moves to its right the left to its left. Make these circles large, moving as slowly as possible. At times the hands will appear not to be moving at all. If needed, the rest of the body can move but also slowly and silently.
After 71/2 minutes when the music changes move the hands in the opposite direction: that is, with the palms down, moving in circular directions inwards towards the body. Move the hands for another 71/2 minutes. As the hands move outwards feel energy moving away from the body and as they circle inwards, imagine taking energy in.
3rd stage: Sit or lie down absolutely still and quiet.
