How science was preserved by Islam in 8 century, here is a link of a TED video on YouTube.
I recently came to know that This mosque became the epicentre for birth of Mohammad, because this was greatest Orthodox Church that time and was hampering progress of science. So to fulfil wish of Mohammad, a King conquered it and converted into grand Mosque and further research in science could continue further. We all must be indebted to this mosque in particular for whatever progress we have done in science.
Beautiful thing I noticed is that western sannyasins of Osho have gone beyond fear of death but Indian sannyasins are still feel taboo of sex, religious intolerance and casteism. Here the reason is basic education. The education system of Christian’s in the west is inclusive, however Christianity may have many faults but they learned to unlearn and relearn from other religions too. So anything that is evolving is going to sustain in future. Christianity recognised Yoga from India, Acupuncture from China, Tibetan meditation & Japanese methods and gave equal rights to women as provided in Muslim laws.
Hinduism is dead and they stopped evolving last 2500 years!
They are world teachers without their own research.
Buddha got enlightened by meditation given in Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, then they came to know about it. Gorakhnath did extensive research 800 years back and gave methods of meditations but Hindu’s denied him altogether. This is the reason they could not learn from OSHO while he lived with them for 50 years after enlightenment! At any Osho centre run by a Hindu you can expect all Hindu rituals and praise of Gods in the name of OSHO. Not bad, if OSHO’s teachings and Hindu scriptures together are used as a springboard for own inner or subjective research to get enlightened. I have deep trust in India’s system that provides basics of spiritual journey in their kids very early, but later they have to carry the burden of pseudo Hinduism and most due unenlightened while they are so near to it. Born in a fertile land most seeds are preferring to get rotten with pride instead of shame! This they are doing to save Hinduism! While their enlightenment is going to save Hinduism in true sense. How a rotten seed can save, when it cannot save itself from death?
Christians have dumped science under pressure from their priests and it was the curiosity and wisdom of Muslims that they adopted scientific discovery and progressed further. Looking at growth of Muslim empire the Christianity was forced to adopt study of science as religious. This science is saved by Muslims while pioneered by Christian’s.
Today we all are indebted to Muslim religion for their acceptance of science study as religion, in that time! Otherwise we were living without social media, video or audio of Osho today.
In this line of thought I conclude that spirituality may be pioneered by Hindus or the East but it will progress further due to curiosity and wisdom of the West. Then after looking at the growth of West due to science coupled with spirituality, Hindus may adopt true spirituality as personal journey inside to reach to the centre of being and declare अहम् ब्रह्मस्मि ‘I am that’. Till that time to come they keep wishing each other with जय श्री राम ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and keep themselves in illusion that this is going to save Hinduism! These are done by Hindus! In future people will laugh at their very foolishness. It is like an Ostrich hiding its head to safeguard itself from enemy.
My post ‘Truth works in a miraculous way!’ Is A must read to know why I am able to predict as above.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. 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.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation helped miraculously. Apart from that living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
