Brief Summary of the Book:
Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, the ancient book in which these 112 techniques were originally recorded belongs to Kashmir Shaivism spiritual tradition. This book is in discourse style where Shakti (the concert of Shiva) asks questions to Shiva and he answers them, which happen to be these techniques.
Osho has explained all these techniques from different angles in a very easy to understand way in this book. The way to follow this book is to go through all these different techniques mentioned in the book and then whatever strikes you, try it!
About these techniques Osho has said:
“These techniques will not mention any religious ritual. No temple is needed, you are quite enough of a temple yourself. You are the lab; the whole experiment is to go on within you. This is not religion, this is science. No belief is needed. Only a daringness to experiment is enough; courage to experiment is enough.
These 112 methods are for the whole of humanity-for all the ages that have passed, and for all the ages that have yet to come. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for three days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months.”
This is a voluminous book of more than 1300 pages divided into 80 chapters but don’t be scared as it is an easy read with big type font. 🙂
