This version of the Samasati Meditation has been created by Veeresh. He drew his inspiration from Osho’s vision of dying consciously and the Tibetan Book of the Dead, also know as the Bardo.
Samasati means awareness or consciousness. Buddha called it right mindfulness, Krishnamurti defined it as choiceless awareness, Gurdjieff spoke about it as self-remembering and Osho explained it as witnessing. Samasati is the last word Buddha said before dying, and Samasati is the last meditation group Osho asked for.
“You are from the very beginning a Buddha, you are a Buddha now and you will always be a Buddha-remember this! My mother’s death was my motivation to make this meditation. I now realize that it is also a preparation for my own death one day.” – Veeresh
The purpose of this meditation is to bring awareness to the denial and fear people have regarding death. The goal of this meditation is to practice the art of witnessing rather than reaching to situations and circumstances. Be aware and remember that since you are alive, you must not take your life for granted. Choose the position: ‘I will always value my life.’
The remaining four stages are a reminder to live totally and cherish each moment.
