Yoga is not about improving health, it is about radiating enlightenment. Yoga is not about becoming a better person in 35 years, but it is about becoming complete NOW.

'The various steps are used in Yoga, ultimately, to awaken your Kundalini Shakti. Yoga is not meant just for your well being or health. It is meant to awaken your mystical powers. It is meant to awaken your spiritual realization. Realizing your spiritual identity is the ultimate goal of Yoga.'

Adi Shankara sings beautifully in the verses of Bhaja Govindam-
Within the potter's wheel's rotation,
The pivot stands still, amidst constant motion,
So too a man of perfection
Is poised, although engaged in action.-
When you understand that you are unclutched, suddenly you realize you are like the pivot of the potter's wheel, unmoving and untouched by the kind of pot being made, the kind of experience being felt.'

' Soul and Prakriti '

This soul is of its own nature,
pure, composed of happiness and wisdom.
The properties of pain, ignorance and impurity,
are those of Prakriti, not of soul.

The body has nothing useful, it has no use after death.
Why cremation in the Hindu tradition,
Let the prana merge with the cosmic prana.
Let the body retire to the basic elements, ashes.

Golden Light Meditation

Osho, while speaking on the Secret of the Golden Flower,
has given us this wonderful and powerful meditation:

The process is:
At least twice a day -- the best times are early in the morning,
just before you get out of your bed.
The moment you feel you are alert, awake, do it for twenty minutes.
Do it first thing in the morning! -- don't get out of the bed.
Do it there, then and there, immediately! --
because when you are coming out of sleep you are very very delicate, receptive.
When you are coming out of sleep you are very fresh, and the impact will go very deep.
When you are just coming out of your sleep you are less in the mind than ever.
Hence some gaps are there through which the method will penetrate into your innermost core.
And early in the morning,
when you are awakening,
and when the whole earth is awakening,
there is a great tide of awakening energy all over the world.
Use that tide; don't miss that opportunity.

All ancient religions used to pray early in the morning when the sun rose,
because the rising of the sun is the rising of all the energies in existence.
In that moment you can simply ride on the rising energy wave; it will be easier.
By the evening it will be difficult, energies will be falling back;
then you will be fighting against the current.
In the morning you will be going with the current.

So the best time to begin is in the early morning,
immediately, just when you are half-asleep, half-awake.

And the process is so simple.
It needs no posture, no yogasana, no bath is needed, nothing.
You simply lie down, as you are lying down in your bed, on your back.
Keep your eyes closed.

When you breathe in, just visualize great light entering from your head into your body,
as if a sun has risen just close to your head -- golden light pouring into your head.
You are just hollow and the golden light is pouring into your head,
and going, going, going, deep, deep, and going out through your toes.
When you breathe in, do it with this visualization.

And when you breathe out, visualize another thing:
darkness entering through your toes, a great dark river entering through your toes,
coming up, and going out through the head.
Do slow, deep breathing so you can visualize.
Go very slowly.
And just out of sleep you can have very deep and slow breaths because the body is rested, relaxed.

Let me repeat: breathing in, let golden light come into you through your head,
because it is there that the Golden Flower is waiting.
That golden light will help.
It will cleanse your whole body and will make it absolutely full of creativity.
This is male energy.
Then when you exhale, let darkness, the darkest you can conceive,
like a dark night, river-like, come from your toes upwards -- this is feminine energy:
it will soothe you, it will make you receptive, it will calm you,
it will give you rest -- and let it go out of the head.
Then inhale again, and golden light enters in.
Do it for twenty minutes early in the morning.

And then the second best time is when you are going back to sleep, in the night.
Lie down on the bed, relax for a few minutes.
When you start feeling that now you are wavering between sleep and waking,
just in that middle, start the process again, and continue for twenty minutes.
If you fall asleep doing it, it is the best,
because the impact will remain in the superconscious and will go on working.

And after a three-month period you will be surprised:
the energy that was constantly gathering at the MULADHAR,
at the lowest, the sex center, is no more gathering there.
It is going upwards.

Just the other day somebody had asked a question.
He said that he has seen the most beautiful women around here
that he has ever seen anywhere else,
but they are non-erotic.
Why is it so? It is so, his observation is right.
If you meditate deeply you will become non-erotic.
You will have a different kind of beauty, but it will not be erotic.
It will start having the flavor of spirituality.
It will start having the subtleness of grace, not the grossness of sexuality.
Sex is gross because it is the lowest rung of your ladder.
As energies move upwards a totally different kind of beauty and grace arises in you, which is divine.
You become less and less of the body and more and more of the spirit.

If you do this simple method for three months, you will be surprised:
there is no need to repress.
Transformation has started happening.
At another Occasion Osho described
the Golden Light Meditation in a different way:

Before you go to sleep in the night, just lie down,
turn the lights off, lie down under your blanket,
and feel your body is dying.
Start from the toes and feel that they are dying and move slowly upwards:
the legs are dying, the thighs are dying; go on moving upwards and let the whole body die.
It will take at least five to seven minutes;
slowly slowly you come to the head and all is dead.
When you feel that all is dead, finished, that the body is a corpse,
then do a small meditation which will be of immense help.

Start feeling that great light is entering from the head, golden light
-- as if suddenly a sun has risen and it is pouring all its gold into you.
It is going in, going in, going in...
the whole body has become a hollow bamboo and the light is falling in
and passing through like a flood, and it goes out from the toes.
For five minutes let this happen, then after five minutes --
just approximately, you need not look at the watch,
just approximately -- after five minutes change the whole process.

Now start thinking of a dark energy, negative --
like a dark night with not a single star in it,
a dark energy flow entering from the toes, moving upwards,
filling the whole bamboo, the hollow body, and going out from the head.
Five minutes of that, and then go to sleep.

This will synchronize the positive and negative energy inside your body.
It will synchronize your man and woman inside the body,
your yin and yang, your day and night, your life and death.
First life, the golden light, then death, the darkness...
and enjoy both, because both are beautiful.
This for five and the first part for five minutes, and seven minutes first to have the body absolutely dead so it creates no hindrance.
This passing of the golden light and the darkness will help tremendously.

Denial of the truth of many births possible is one of the biggest, biggest wrong ideas taught to human-beings. See, it is like you tell somebody that after seven kilometres there is no road; and this fellow goes there and he sees multiple roads, but he does not know how to drive there because he was not prepared! Keeping human-beings in the dark and not letting them prepare for their future is the biggest mistake. That is why, I am telling you, if you are from the tradition of Sanatana Hindu Dharma, you are rightly informed and prepared for your complete life.

To Him who pervades the consciousness of all moving and non-moving beings, which is divine, only one, endless and primeval, which is Lord

Bhairava, who is the refuge for the helpless, to Him who is in my mind with all my heart I offer my salutations.

Oh Mahesh! With the grace of thy blessing this whole universe is nothing more than your manifestation. Wherever I see You and my soul is completely full of You.

In this world You are the Lord of my soul, because of this in my life there is no fear of difficulties and pain, which are the result of this cycle of birth and death.

Oh Antaka, Lord of Death! Do not cast your awful look on me. Oh Brave who always thinks of serving the Lord Shankara. Oh mighty Bhairava, Lord of creation, sustenance and destruction, give me the strength.

Oh Lord of the worlds! Salutations to You. I melt in the rays coming from the splendor of Your Light, which dissipate the darkness of ignorance and the fear of ghosts of the Lord of Death.

Oh ray of light of eternal truth, universal consciousness of the world, who has a nature full of Divine nectar. My soul filled with ecstasy salutes You.

Oh Lord you're attainable by the mind through meditation, You are a shower of nectar of unity that restores my body in a State of suffering.

Oh Shankara, it is true that penance, charity, bathing in sacred water and meditation break the pain cycle of birth and death, but the rain of nectar that flows from your divine story leads to salvation.

Oh Lord Bhairava! It is well known that You are easily accessible by devotees, but inaccessible to people with no devotion. My conscience, having realized your true nature, sings and dances in Ecstasy.

Abhinavagupta wrote this great prayer on the tenth day of the dark fortnight of the month of Pausha, and with this hymn the Lord Bhairava, all pervading and full of compassion, destroys all the miseries of his devotees.

Thus ends the hymn of nine stanzas written by Abhinavagupta.

' Dakshinamurthy Stotram '

I praise and salute that Dakshinamurthy,

Who faces the south,
Who explains the true nature of the supreme Brahman,
Through his state of silence,
Who is young in looks,
Who is surrounded by disciples who are old Sages,
Whose minds are fixed on Brahman,
Who is the greatest of teachers,
Who shows the Chinmudhra by his hand,
Who is personification of happiness,
Who is in the state of extreme joy within himself,
And who has a smiling face.

Similar to the image of a town as seen in the mirror,
When one sees the image of the world within him,
The world appears as if it is outside.
It is similar to his seeing due to illusion,
During the state of sleep,
That the one real fact appears as many different truths,
And he realizes,when he wakes up and sees the reality,
That he is really the one and only one soul.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Like the germ inside the seed is its part,
But becomes different after development
The many places and time which are before us,
Are drawn by illusion in the board of life in a peculiar manner,
By a great savant or an expert Siddha,
Who can create them as per their will,
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

He who exists as the real light of truth,
And shines in the false world of appearance,
And He who teaches disciples the great saying,
“Thou art that” after realizing its import,
Gets away from this cycle of life and death.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Like the light emanating from a lamp,
Kept in a pot with many holes,
Goes out in all directions,
In the person in whom the wisdom goes out
Through the openings of ear, eye, mouth and thought,
And when that person realizes that ‘I know myself”,
This whole universe shines after Him alone,
Who shines in the consciousness as the knower.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Those great philosophers, who think that,
The body, the soul and the fickle intellect,
The concept of emptiness and all other nothingness,
Are nothing but themselves,
Are similar to the women children, blind and the ignorant.
It is only He who can destroy, this veil of ignorance,
And wake us up from this state of deceit.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Similar to the Sun when being masked by the serpent Rahu,
Knows that it was existing, once the eclipse is over
That man whose senses are suppressed
When he is asleep,
Because of the veil of illusion,
Realizes that he was in the state of sleep,
When he wakes up.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Salutations to him who shines and exhibits,
Himself by the beatific Chinmudhra of the hand,
That he exists within the humans as self,
Forever and non changing,
Even during the changing states of childhood, youth and old age
And even during the states of sleep, dream and wakefulness.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.
The truth as represented by the concept of Brahman, exists always.

The world sees as cause and effect,
The differences between us and our lord,
The distinction between teacher and the taught,
The distinction between father and son,
And so the man is confused by illusion,
And believes in these differences,
During the times of dream and wakefulness.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

To the sake of which supreme Brahman,
The universe is shining as self,
Which is Movable and immovable, with its aspects?
Of water, fire, air, space,
The sun, moon and the individual soul,
And also to those who examine the truth behind,
The meaning of this universe and find,
That it Consists of nothing but,
The God who is every where.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

The concept of the Athma,
Which is explained in this poem of praise,
Hearing which, understanding which,
Meditating which and singing which,
One would attain the state of the godliness,
And the great state of self-realization,
And also you would get the eight powers of occult,
Without any problems in between.

The following three stanzas as well as the first stanza are chanted after the main stotra:

It is strange to see,

The very old disciples,
And the very young teacher,
Who sit under a banyan tree,
With the teacher always observing silence,
And the students getting all the doubts cleared.

Salutations to that Dakshinamurthy,
Who is the meaning of the pranava, “om”,
Who is the personification of unalloyed wisdom,
Who is crystal clear in his thought,
And who is the epitome of peace.

Salutations to that Dakshinamurthy,
Who is the teacher of the entire world,
Who is the doctor to those,
Afflicted by the disease of birth and death

It is like when you go to a theater, you watch a movie, but you know it is not real. That is why you are able to enjoy it, no matter what happens on screen. When you come home you forget about it. Life is exactly like this. The whole world is like a movie on a vast screen. When you understand this, you can enjoy the movie. You realize there is nothing wrong in enjoying it.

We see two things in the process of 'seeing', the seer and the seen object. Actually, what is happening in the process of seeing ?( though the example of eyes is taken here, it applies for all the senses.) From the seer, consciousness takes a jump continuously to the seen, because it is not able to relax into the seer itself. Because of its restlessness, it gives life to the seen.

' Śūraṅgama Sūtra '


"The Buddha then compounds his cousin's confusion by stating that there are fundamentally two kinds of mind:

1. First, the ordinary quotidian mind of which we are aware and which is entangled, lifetime after lifetime, in the snare of illusory perceptions and random thoughts;

2. And second, the everlasting true mind, which is our real nature, and which is the state of the Buddha."

" Ananda, what are the two fundamentals?

The first is the mind that is the basis of death and rebirth and that has continued for the entirety of time, which has no beginning. This mind is dependent upon perceived objects, and it is this that you and all beings make use of and that each of you consider to be your own nature.

The second fundamental is enlightenment, which has no beginning; it is the original and pure essence of nirvana. It is the original understanding, the real nature of consciousness. All conditioned phenomena arise from it, and yet it is among those phenomena that beings lose track of it. They have lost track of this fundamental understanding, though it is active in them all day long, and because they remain unaware of it, they make the mistake of entering the various destinies."

Everything in the Universe has the capacity to record and restore memory because memory is a Matter.
Even a stone records and keep the memory of how to respond if a powerful mass is going to hit it and break it into pieces.
Likewise your joy is a muscle memory, your pain is a muscle memory. Muscle memories are your patterns as your everyday activities/lifestyles.

Stress happens only when you take decisions unconsciously, when engrams(Vasanas) interfere with your decision making. If things are straightforward, you can take thousands of decisions and be completely relaxed. Your life will flow, just like a river.
