May 31, 2021

This is the third music-silence meditation in this series. It has a slightly longer format than the previous two: thirty minutes instead of ten. Are you up for the challenge?

At the beginning, before the bell, I have added some words from Osho on listening. There are also some words from him after the ending bell, so be sure to stay alert for a few more minutes!

The technique is simple. Simply listen to the music with awareness and when the silent gaps come, relax into them and watch your inner landscape. See if you can resist the temptation to stop your thoughts! This is akin to swimming upstream against a current. Let go. Use this opportunity to practice watching them. See if you can let your Mind do its thing while simultaneously relaxing deeper in the gaps. At the end of the meditation, you are welcome to share your experience in the comments section below the post.

This mini-series has allowed me to revisit some of the wonderful music from the previous year’s Satsangs. The musicians on this particular session are Milind (bansuri), Chintan (tablas), and Milarepa (guitar). This will be my last sharing in this shortened format as I will be focusing on preparations for the next Satsang. But Maneesha James is going to be picking up the thread and sharing them on a weekly basis at:

This is a little experiment if you are up for it. It is an invitation to take a ten minute break from whatever you are doing in this moment and participate in a ten minute meditation “challenge”. It goes like this: Start the video from the beginning (be sure your sound is on). When you hear the bell, close your eyes. Be a listener to the music as it plays. And when the gaps come, relax into silence. See if you can resist the temptation to stop the Mind. In meditation, this is akin to swimming upstream in a strong river current. The best option, and what this exercise teaches, is to let go, watch, and observe the Mind. Of course, it might seem overwhelming at first, the rush and chaos of thoughts. But one of the great, liberating insights in meditation is realizing that we are NOT the insanity that goes on in our minds. There will be three sections of music each followed by a gap of silence. The end of the meditation is signaled by three drum beats.

The musicians are: Chintan (tablas), Dhwani (copper tin whistle), and Rishi (percussion).

Here is another an invitation to hit the pause button on busy daily life and be nourished by the deep well-spring of inner silence. At the bell (be sure to start the clip from the beginning), close your eyes and be a listener to the music. When the gap comes, relax into it. Watch the inner landscape. At first, you may notice a rush hour of thoughts but don’t be alarmed. It is perfectly natural. It is the business of the Mind is to be busy! Just continue to watch and relax. The meditation continues in this way — music, silence, music, silence, music, silence — ending with a bell. The whole process takes about thirteen minutes from start to finish. Enjoy! 

The musicians are: Chintan (tablas), Dhwani (copper tin whistle), and Rishi (percussion).

Satsang: A Thousand Times This!

I am happy to announce the next Satsang streaming, May 7 – 9.

It is definitely a challenging process to manage a band in these socially-distanced these times, but also fun, creative, and connecting. 

References to time and space don’t apply to Satsang. Thinking of meditation in terms such as “morning”, “evening”, “east”, “west”—or even seasonally such as Spring—isn’t relevant. What is important, though, is the format, and for this particular Satsang, we will again be enjoying the “evening” format as defined by Osho. 

Most of us know it by different names—Osho White Robe Brotherhood, Evening Meeting, Evening Satsang with the Master. The stages are ten minutes of high-energy celebration, followed by ten minutes of silent sitting with soft music, and an Osho discourse. It will finish with a short Sannyas Celebration. This is a unique one-of-a-kind tribute to the Master, a joyous gathering of friends and meditators from around the world, and will be nothing less than a super celebration. What better way to refresh oneself, inside and out, while navigating the current world situation?

Satsang will be shared via Zoom four times over three days on the weekend of May 7 – 9, in different timezones so everyone who wants to has an opportunity to enjoy. Each streaming will feature a DIFFERENT discourse. The entire meditation, from start to finish, will be about one hour and thirty minutes long. 

Please note the various links below when choosing a convenient date and time. Know that it is fine to join for more than one Satsang. In fact, last time there were quite a few adventurous souls who attended all four streamings. There were no gold stars given, but I did hear rumours of enlightenment. I didn’t hear from anyone directly, so I can’t confirm the rumors. I assume whoever they were stepped into the blue sky and left no footprints. So be advised!

The sugestion for Satsang in this format is to wear white as per Osho’s guidance. One can’t second guess the Master as to why he chose white for the meditation. I just know that it works in some mysterious way, making the meditation powerful and deeping the connection with each other. 

Anyone wishing to take sannyas at the end, please contact me directly at oneskymusic@gmail.com, and we will celebrate your jump. I will be making more postings in the coming days as the meditation comes closer, so stay in tune for further updates. Onwards and upwards!

March 6, 2021

I would like to share the audio of the two celebration songs from Satsang: A Worldwide Osho Tribute that streamed via Zoom February 26-28, 2021. “This Life Our Celebration” is a sannyas perennial that has been played in countless celebrations around the world. I wrote it in 1981 at Rajneeshpuram (additional lyric from Maniko) and it chosen to be played at the First Annual World Celebration. The version featured here was the first stage (celebration) of the recent Satsang (evening format). It features Atmo (trumpet), Chandira (vocals), Chintan (bass), Nadama (keyboards), Nandin (flutes), Rishi (drums), Sudhananda (vocals), and Milarepa (vocals, guitar). The second song, “Altitude Of Your Love” written by Sudhananda(https://sudhananda.com), is one of the most-beloved songs from the World of Osho. It was featured for Sannyas Celebration at the end of Satsang. This is a free sharing, but please consider a gesture of support, if you download the tracks, using one of these convenient platforms: Paypal (https://paypal.me/oneskymusic), Zelle (oneskymusic@gmail.com); or visit the “Contribute” button on this homepage (www.oneskymusic.com).

I am happy to announce the next Satsang: A Worldwide Osho Tribute. I have been collaborating with the band on it since early last December. It has been a lot of work, but also a LOT of fun. Now at last, it is ready to share. 

It will be in an “evening” format this time, what is sometimes referred to as “Osho White Robe Brotherhood” or “Evening Meeting”. The stages are ten minutes of high-energy celebration, followed by ten minutes of silent sitting with soft music, and an Osho discourse. This time as a special treat, it finishes with a short Sannyas Celebration. It will be a one-of-a-kind tribute to the master, a joyous international gathering of friends and meditators, and — a super celebration! 

Satsang will be shared via Zoom, four times over three days, on the weekend of February 26 – 28, so that everyone around the world will have an opportunity to enjoy. Each streaming will feature a different discourse. Please note the links below, and choose a date and time convenient (it is fine to join more than one).
