In this small book Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh leads us through the mysterious world of the ancient Zen masters. What looks like insoluble riddles becomes a doorway to the unknown.

Out of this series of discourses a new hterapy was born -the No-Mind Meditation. To know the no-mind of Zen, Bhagwan says we need to rid ourselves of repressions. The No-Mind Meditation consists of one hour of gibberish followed by one hour of silence.

“How long can you go on? – the mind becomes empty. Slowly, slowly a deep nothingness…and in that nothingness a flame of awareness. It is always present, surrounded by your gibberish. The gibberish has to be talen out; that is your poison”

To enter this book is to have a peek into the world of no-mind.

In April of 1988, Bhagwan introduced a new element into His daily discourses. For the first time in more than thirteen years, diciples and seekers had the opportunity to experience a sepcific meditation process in Bhagwan’s presence, with His guidance.

In this series of discourses, the meditation consists of two stages. The first is a silent gathering of energy within, sitting absolutely still, without any movement of the body or mind.

The second stage is let-go, where the participants llow themselves to fall to the floor in total relaxation.
