The fourth virtual Morning Satsang of the year was Zoom’d on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at 12:15pm EDT. It features special guests Chandira (piano, bass), Nandin (silver flute), Harida (santoor), Milind (bansuri), Sudhananda and myself on acoustic guitars and vocals. I wish to thank and acknowledge all the musicians for sharing their talents and gracing this meditation with their inspired playing.
The meditation is one hour long. It is done with eyes closed. Sit comfortably and relax. The music, quotes from Osho, humming, and gaps of silence are there to support letting go into silence as deeply as possible. The stages are as follows:
1. Bell to start
2. A short silence
3. The first music track
4. Fifteen minutes of silent sitting
5. An Osho quote in Hindi
6. Another bell signals the Humming Stage (ten minutes long). This stage requires participation. Hum quietly to oneself with lips and teeth together.
7. Fifteen minutes of silent sitting
8. An Osho quote in English
9. The second music track
10. A short silence
11. Three bells signal the end
The celebration song that follows, “We Are Buddha Nature”, is written by my dear Danish friend, Bindu, with whom I played with for many years. We first sang this song in Osho’s discourse, probably sometime in 1988. It went on to become one of the sannyas “classics”. The song video, edited by Sudhananda, can be listened to and viewed on the One Sky Music Youtube channel. Visit https://youtu.be/mc3zNAWfdVY. The entire meditation can be downloaded below or it can be stream at https://youtu.be/ZkQ8_RqPKrg. This is a free sharing to be enjoyed by all.
