Leela Meditation

By Osho Priya, Posted on May 15, 2009

This meditation is an art of cleansing all the hurdles on the way of your inner journey. If there are some obstacles than the spring of love and awareness from within cannot come to the surface.


Also, the road to go within to meet yourself needs to be clean and clear enough, so as for you to travel easily and joyfully. There is much garbage of unexpressed emotions of anger; sadness, jealousy, hatred, joy, love, happiness and so on are repressed within us. Firstly, that needs to be filtered off.


Osho says beautifully:

Become a friend to yourself. Allow the whole nonsense that is repressed and unconscious within you to be acted out. Be courageous enough to express your diseases. The moment they are expressed, the moment your unconscious diseases become conscious, they disappear. This is the only way. (Osho, The New Alchemy: To Turn You On, Chp # 3)


In controlling you repress, in transformation you express. But there is no need to express on somebody else because the 'somebody else' is just irrelevant. Next time you feel angry go and run around the house seven times, and after it sit under a tree and watch where the anger has gone. You have not repressed it, you have not controlled it, you have not thrown it on somebody else -- because if you throw it on somebody else a chain is created, because the other is as foolish as you, as unconscious as you. (Osho, And The Flowers Showered, Chapter #3)

Being a part of the society at times we cannot express happiness as a matter of courtesy, manners or for some reason or other. So, in one part of this meditation we shall give expression to the emotions of good times, of laughter, of joy, of happiness. Also, there are times when we want to cry but cannot. And those feelings persist in our unconscious mind. Thus, in the second part we shall give way to those feelings too. Now, since we have moved on both extremes of joy and sorrow, let us stop in the middle and just watch. Followed by this shall be a chance to celebrate life. Only a WATCHER, unidentified with the emotions can celebrate.

After these steps there shall be nothing else to do other than relaxing joyfully.

Get ready for this meditation technique.

First Step (2 Minutes): Chanting Mantra "OM"

Join your hands and sing along the Mantra "OM" thrice.


Second Step (5 Minutes): Laughter

Laugh loudly, Laugh without any reason.

Feel that laughter is being released from your naval center.

Enjoy laughter to the fullest.


Third Step (5 Minutes): Crying

Remember any sad event or any trouble of your life.

Re-Live it totally.

Let all the boundaries wash away with tears.

Unburden yourself from the misery.


Fourth Step (5 Minutes): Witnessing

Come to the golden mean.

Beyond the duality of laughing and crying there is a consciousness just watching. Be silent and just watch your silence.

Fifth Step ( 7 Minutes): Celebration

There have been good and bad times, ups and downs in life.

But now you have become a part of Osho's grace.

His blessings showering upon us, we are luckiest people on earth. Filled with gratitude, celebrate this very moment.


Sixth Step (3 Minutes): Relaxation

Lie down in a relaxed posture.

Quiet… Silent…

No duality of the Knower and the Known...

Let there be No thou... No I

Just nobody-ness.

Complete nothingness.

This is your abode.

Rest in this emptiness.


Seventh Step (15 Minutes): Self-Remembrance

You are always beyond all dualities. Remember yourself as the transcendental nothingness, pure consciousness.

Eighth Step (3 Minutes): Gratitude

Gradually, take few deep breaths. Be aware towards them.

Let awareness be accompanied with the feeling of Gratitude.

This loving consciousness is what we have to remember throughout.
