“Forget the dancer, the center of the ego; become the dance. That is the meditation. Dance so deeply that you forget completely that ‘you’ are dancing and begin to feel that you are the dance. The division must disappear; then it becomes a meditation.
Originally Nataraja is a depiction of the Hindu God Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for the god Brahma to start the process of creation.
A liberating dance meditation with relaxation and celebration stages for freeing the spirit. This Meditation was flourished -by OSHO.
Natraj Meditation is a form of meditation, while you can emerge yourself in dancing and watch your inner state how it goes from restlessness to calm, joy and bliss, break free of the ego, to break free from the identity that man holds close to his heart. Dancing breaks your conditionings. You do not need to use the mind to dance; you dance from your Being. Dance is the outward expression of the inner joy when you fall into the joyous path.
Nataraj Meditation lasts 65 minutes and is in three stages.
First stage – 40 minutes music: Dance as if possessed with closed eyes. Let your unconscious take over completely. Do not control your movements or be a witness. Just be totally in the dance.
Second Stage – 20 minutes silence: When the music stops, lie down immediately, silent and still. Allow the vibrations of the dance and the music to penetrate your most subtle layers.
Third Stage – 5 minutes music: Dance, sing, rejoice in celebration and thanksgiving.
