TANTRIC LOVE 🌺
Again and again Osho stressed upon need of understanding the sex as enormous source of energy within. Just like due to our growing up in a society those who take care of us from birth to adult age impose their version or views upon us as the only truth. The body imposes sex on this body as only pleasure. We need to understand these two through our experience after we become adult. And as a responsible human being remove the unwanted, unhealthy and stinking part of them and begin our journey outward ie material world as well as inwards too ie spiritual world beginning from the part that we love most.
This way one day we will be able to bring harmony between the outer and the inner. Then like a bird takes wing, we too enter into state of ultimate freedom.
To let us understand sexual energy’s creative side Osho says:
D. H. Lawrence, one of the most creative minds of this age, was, knowingly or unknowingly, a Tantra adept.
He was condemned in the West completely; his books were banned.
There were many cases in the courts – because he said that sex energy is the only energy, and if you condemn it and suppress it you are against the universe and you will never be capable of knowing the higher flowering of this energy.
And when suppressed it becomes ugly.
This is the vicious circle: priests, moralists, so-called religious people, popes, shankaracharyas and others, they go on condemning sex.
They say this is an ugly thing.
When you suppress it, it becomes ugly, so they say: “Look! What we said is true. It is proved by you. Look! Whatsoever you are doing is ugly and you know it is ugly.”
But it is not sex which is ugly, it is these priests who have made it ugly.
And once they have made it ugly, they are proved right.
And when they are proved right, you go on making it more and more ugly – uglier.
Sex is innocent energy, life flowing in you, existence alive in you.
Don’t cripple it.
Allow it to move towards heights – that is, sex must become love.
What is the difference?
When your mind is sexual you are exploiting the other.
The other is just an instrument to be used and thrown.
When sex becomes love, the other is not an instrument, the other is not to be exploited.
The other is not really the other.
When you love, it is not self-centered.
Rather, the other becomes significant, unique.
It is not that you are exploiting him – no.
On the contrary, you both are joining in a deep experience.
You are partners of a deep experience, not the exploiter and the exploited.
You are helping each other to move in a different world, of love.
Sex is exploitation.
Love is moving together into a different world.
If this moving is not momentary, and if this moving becomes meditative, that is if you can forget yourself completely and the lover and the beloved disappear and there is only love flowing, then, Shiva says, everlasting life is yours.

Tantra, Spirituality & Sex
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me and I tried it first during brushing my teeth in the morning after trying 8-10 meditations over period of 15 years! So there is no need to reinvent the circle for you. May be you too find it suitable otherwise with Dynamic meditation and/or Kundalini in the evening it is suitable for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho for contemporary people that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
Once you are able to attain no-mind state during awareness meditation practice, then you can apply it during any other act too. If you apply it during sex then it becomes TANTRA and you may attain ecstatic orgasm because you are able to touch the centre of your being. This is how you can use the sexual energy into your spiritual journey. Once you touched the centre then by practicing other meditations you can go beyond the need of the other to attain such ecstatic state. This is how one can move from sex to super consciousness.

This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.
Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
