Meditation du Jour

Laughter meditation

Osho

Long before it became fashionable, right back in the early ‘70’s, Osho introduced seekers to the Zen tradition of laughter as a meditation.
The laughter meditation can be done in a variety of ways – with friends or alone. If you are short on time, even 5 minutes of laughter will change your day, and your night. The following version needs no organisation…

Step 1: Start your day laughing
The moment you feel that sleep is gone, first start laughing. Only then open your eyes. That will set a trend for the whole day. If you can laugh early in the morning you will laugh the whole day. You have created a chain effect; one thing leads to another. Laughter leads to more laughter.
If you become silent after your laughter, one day you will hear…the whole existence laughing -- trees and stones and stars with you.

Step 2: End your day laughing
In the Zen [tradition] the monk goes to sleep in the night again with laughter. The day is over, the drama is closed again. With laughter he says "Goodbye, and if I survive again, tomorrow morning I will greet you again with laughter."

Try it! Start and finish your day with laughter, and you will see, by and by, in between these two more and more laughter starts happening. And the more laughing you become, the more religious.


Man should consider himself
fortunate to have been
a contemporary of the rose.

Juan Ramon Jimenez
