OSHO Laughter Meditation

This meditation helps you to start enjoying the small things of life – childlike, liquid, mirrorlike. The first stage is of giggling and laughing, in the second stage you earth yourself; energized by this, your dance in the last stage will have a different quality.




First Stage: 20 minutes

Sitting silently, eyes closed, create a giggle in the very guts of your being, as if your whole body is giggling and laughing. Start swaying with the laughter and let it spread from the belly to the whole of your body: hands laughing, feet laughing. Go crazily into it. If it comes uproariously, loudly, allow it; if it comes silently, then sometimes silently, sometimes loudly – but keep on laughing. 
This stage is over when you hear a gong beat.

Second Stage: 20 minutes

Lie down, spread yourself on the floor, facing the floor. Make contact with the earth, the whole body lying down there, and just feel that the earth is the mother and you are the child. Get lost in that feeling. Breathe with the earth, feel one with the earth.

Third Stage: 20 minutes

Stand up and start dancing. Energized by the earthing, you will have so much energy that your dancing will have a different quality to it. Just dance, any dance.
