To escape into Nirvana is not the fullest expression of enlightenment or awakening outside the Therevadan school of Buddhism. Indeed, it can be seen as self-indulgence of the highest order. “I got mine, so you go get yours.”
Moving back into the world of manifestation and giving aid whenever, wherever, and however we can is what makes awakening real. In Mahayana Buddhism, the bodhisattva realizes that no one enters Nirvana unless everyone does. Otherwise, it would not be Nirvana. As with the ten ox-herding pictures, the final stage of enlightenment is to “return to the village with grace-bestowing hands.”
“Why do you seek the truth?” “Why do you yearn to know the answer of ‘Who am l?” If I have to answer these question today, the answer is “If you yearn to know the answer of the most prominent question ‘who am I?’ then ultimately you are going to discover that you are the truth and that discovery liberates you from all bondages.”
So if you are seeking the truth then you are going to discover that it is your reality, your real life and is going to remain forever. You have come home and all hankering and pondering stops immediately.
So to come back to our eternal common home from which we
have gone astray we are seeking the truth. And it is quite natural that we could go astray during the journey inwards. But the reward is that such sheep is going to be brought back home carrying them in his shoulders by Jesus or God himself.
See the dilemma that a sheep never goes astray from herd but has dared to go astray while it is easy for human being to go astray but…
So this example is really a master stroke on organised religions.
See how Bob Marley raises his eyebrows at the end to describe the real life as life forever to the journalist.
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.

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’.
