After transformation what is left?
This is the first post created on 14th April, 2018 on word press to share my experiences of transformation that happened on 08/09/2017 with fellow travellers through internet. It took around six months to conform from various books of Osho that it was a Satori. I am satisfied that this endeavour has helped at least one person. Through different metaphors mystics tried to point towards the inner richness of human being.
I used different metaphors in my other posts to help one understand the ecstatic or blissful realm or state of person after transformation. Here is a list so that you may like to know more.
There are two types of human transformation from human being to being human. As per Patanjali one is Sabeej-Samadhi and another is Nirbeej-Samadhi — or transcendence without a seed.
A type of Sabeej-Samadhi or transcendence with seed of original human being- happens to exceptional Poets, Musicians — vocal or instrumental, Artists, Players, Dancers etc. They get transformed for some time but during transformation the seed of their ego remains with them and again start living as normal human being after the performance.
Another transformation is Nirbeej-Samadhi — or transcendence without keeping seed of original human being. This is true enlightenment and worth striving for. Now the question is -what happens to the body after enlightenment as the person continues to live as human body while his seed or ego is not there?
After Nirbeej-Samadhi transformation first responsibility as living ‘being human’ is to reach out to those, at least, who are at the edge of transformation.
This living as ‘being human’ is for the body only to help others, who are at verge of enlightenment-so they can only relate with body. Nanak said such people ‘Guru or masters’ as ‘Door’, of which one part is in connection with the outer world and another is with inner/God/transcended while the door is just the gap connecting outer to the inner, and in itself it exists not! It’s ego ie wall exists not in case of a master to function as door.
However transformed will continue to use the body, as shutters of the door, for reaching out to others and convey his teachings to them. Now this body is always in present. No future and no past exists for it. Hence the body is seen by others is same but its content is changed. Also it is used as a medium only by the transformed.
Awareness meditationis the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “ How meditation affects us?”.
There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

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’.
