Long-term stress could make people fat”, claims a study of around 50 overweight middle-aged men in Sweden. Disruptions in the human nervous system or stress can concentrate fat around the abdomen, raising the risk of diabetes and heart problems, the study by the university hospital in the Swedish city of Gothenburg found.

The eastern yoga and meditation system offers a perfect solution to this problem. If yoga is too arduous for people, there is Osho’s Kundalini Meditation. We recommend this method to be practiced daily for 21 days for marvellous results. It has been effective at Osho centers worldwide. In 1998, a special survey revealed people all over the world, specially USA, were suffering from Internet depression. News agency AFP distributed the story about Kundalini Meditation as a cure for internet blues. The report said, “A body under stress creates a surplus of one hormone which stimulates a fat-gathering enzyme. This enzyme is more easily taken up by the abdomen than other parts of the body. After a long period of stress, hormone surplus decreases but the fat remains, particularly around the bellies of modern men who need less physical exercise to survive than their forefathers.” Happy Ho organizes best Meditation and Tarot classes in Noida and Delhi NCR area in India.

Yoga has its own research. People who live an emotionally suppressed and unsatisfied life eat more, accumulating stress and fat in their bodies. This can be cured with cathartic techniques such as Osho Dynamic Meditation. The first step is vigorous breathing for 10 minutes. The second step is of catharsis for 10 minutes. The third step is of hammering on the coiled energy of Kundalini below the Muladhara chakra. Then, there are two steps of 15 minutes of silence and celebration. This is a powerful meditation to tone the body. Osho Kundalini Meditation lasts for an hour and has four stages of which three are with music composed under the guidance of Osho. If you would like to try, it is described below. Remember the last stage is in silence. A gong signals the end of the silent period.

First stage: 15 minutes. 

Loosen up and let your body shake, feeling energies moving up your feet. Let go everywhere and become the shaking. Keep eyes open or closed.

Second stage: 15 minutes

Dance… any way you feel. Let the body move anyway.

Third stage: 15 minutes

Close your eyes and be still, sitting or standing… witness what happens inside and out.

Fourth stage: 15 minutes 

Keep your eyes closed, lie down and be still.

“…Allow the shaking, don’t do it. Stand silently and feel it coming. When your body starts to tremble, help it, don’t do it. If you force it, it will become an exercise. Then shaking will be there but just on the surface. You will remain solid, stone like, rock like within; you will remain a manipulator, the doer, and the body will just follow. The body is not the question – you are the question.”  

It is recommended to attend a meditation retreat organised by Happy Ho or Osho meditation centers anywhere in India or the world. You can also write to info@happyho.in or contact@oshoworld.com
