Gibberish Meditation - Short

The word “gibberish” comes from a Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar never spoke any language, he just uttered nonsense. Still he had thousands of disciples because what he was saying was, “Our mind is nothing but gibberish. Put it aside and we will have a taste of our own being. Just throw out all mind garbage and create the space in which the Buddha appears.

Our mind thinks in the language that we know. Gibberish is to talk in the language that we do not know. This technique works wonders. Continuously talking in another language and using sounds and body movements doesn't allow the mind to do its usual chatter, leading to a relaxed state of being.

 

Gibberish has been described by Osho as “one of the most scientific ways to clean your mind.” 

Do this meditation at-least for 7 days regularly and intensely to have a deep impact.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First Stage: Gibberish - 10-30 Minutes

Be alone, lock yourself in a room. Stand with knees and shoulders loose and unlocked, make fist.

Close your eyes and begin to say nonsense sounds – any sounds or words, so long as they make no sense. Just speak any language that you don’t know!. Throw everything out, Go consciously crazy. The mind thinks in terms of words. Gibberish helps to break up this pattern of continuous verbalization. Without suppressing your thoughts, you can throw them out. Let your body likewise be expressive.

Important is to do non-stop talking in words. You can make sounds but come back to words. 

 

If you do this meditation with other people, do not relate or interfere with them in any way. Just stay with what is happening to you, and don’t bother about what others are doing.

Download the music for 10, 20 or 30 minutes. When the music stops, move to the second stage.

Second Stage: Moving In - 10 Minutes

Be silent, close your eyes…no movement of the body – feel frozen. Become a statue, simply watching whatever is happening.

Third Stage: Sit Silently - 10 Minutes

You may sit on the floor or use a chair. Your head and back should be straight, your body relaxed, your eyes closed and your breathing natural, observing, witnessing, whatever is happening inside and out.
