This technique, for the night-time, consists of four stages of fifteen minutes each. The first two stages are preparation for the spontaneous Latihan of the third stage.
First stage: 15 minutes Music. Sit with eyes closed. Inhale deeply through the nose, filling the lungs. Hold the breath for as long as possible then exhale gently through the mouth, keeping the lungs empty for as long as possible. Repeat this cycle.
Second stage: 15 minutes Music. Return to normal breathing and, allowing the gaze to be soft and gentle, look at a candle flame or flashing light. * Keep the body still.
Third stage: 15 minutes Music. With closed eyes, stand up and left the body be loose and receptive. The subtle energies within will be felt to move the body outside your normal control. Allow this (Latihan) to happen. Don’t you do the moving. Let the moving happen.
Fourth stage: 15 minutes Silence. Lie down, silent and still. *The rhythmic beat of the music in the second stage is seven times the normal heartbeat. If possible, the flashing light should be a synchronized strobe.
“Osho has said that if breathing is done correctly in the first stage, the carbon dioxide formed in the bloodstream will make the meditator as high as if an Gourishankar (Mt. Everest).”
