OSHO Meditation Practices: Nadabrahma Meditation
Nadabrahma is an old Tibetan technique that used to be performed in the early morning hours. It can be performed at any time of the day, alone, or with others, but on an empty stomach, and you need to remain inactive for at least fifteen minutes after it. Meditation lasts one hour and consists of three stages.
Step by step guide
Nadabrahma Meditation 1st stage – 30 minutes:
Sit in a relaxed position with your eyes and lips closed. Start to hum so loud that others hear, and create a vibration throughout the body. You can imagine a hollow pipe or an empty vessel filled only with vibrations of buzz.
There is a moment when the buzz continues by itself, and you become a listener. In this case, you do not need any special breathing, and you can increase the height of the buzz, or slowly and gently move the body if you want.
Nadabrahma Meditation 2nd stage – 15 minutes:
The second stage is divided into two parts of seven and a half minutes. First, move your hands, palms up with arc movements. Start at the navel level, both hands move forward, and then diverge, making two large circles on the left and right, which are mirror images of each other. The movement should be so slow that it is difficult to notice. Feel that you are giving away the energy to the Universe.
After seven and a half minutes, turn your hands with your palms down and start moving them in the opposite direction. Now the hands converge at the navel and diverge at the sides. Feel that you are getting energy. As in the first stage, you can do soft, slow movements of the body.
Nadabrahma Meditation 3rd stage – 15 minutes:
Sit completely quiet and still.
