The Art of Dying- the Art of Living
at Osho Nisarga, near Dharamsala,
at the feet of the Himalayas
We are all touched by death and will sooner or later experience
the deeply transforming process that death brings.
This seminar shows us ways to meet this experience with an expanded consciousness and to grow through it in our life now.
Often we fail to live our lives to the fullest because mind is the illusion of time, of past and future. We imagine that there is an infinite amount of time, and so we continue to postpone living an authentic life. The mind ´s tendency is to postpone, and this makes us live in a dream of desires and hopes for the future. Unconsciously we deny the fact of our mortality and close our awareness to what is real and present in front of us. In this way we dream our life rather than live it, and our fear of death continues to diminish the quality of our lives. Only a fearless consciousness can awaken to its full potential.
The art of dying is the art of letting go and of living the present moment as if it were our last, here, now, immersed in it. When we realize the ever changing quality of life, and that death is the only real certainty, a quantum leap can happen in our consciousness. When we awaken to this truth, we are free to live in a deep clarity about what is really essential in life, and what isn´t. When we make a conscious decision to allow the awareness of our mortality to guide us through our life, it will lead us towards the most essential question: who we really are, and what survives death?

When we recognize that the roots of all our fears are the fears of the unknown, and that we project all our fears of life onto the unknown of death, a conscious understanding of death and dying, and the willingness to learn to let go, are the answer to all our fears and our longing for real love and spiritual fulfillment.
Looking at death from the point of view of what it teaches us about life
will transform the quality and vision of our life.
This process is valuable for all who want to explore the phenomenon of death, out of personal or professional concerns, as well as for those who want to find the inner motivation for authentic living and new priorities their life.We learn to open for the mystery and the possible gift that death can bring to our life: Nothing can make the urgency for love, compassion and meditation more clear than the fact that we are not here forever.
An authentic awakening is possible only when we accept and understand our physical mortality and realize our eternal consciousness.
"The secret of knowing death, of understanding death, is not in death itself. You will have to go deeper into the existence of the ego. You will have to look, observe, watch, be aware of what this ego is. And the day you have found that there is no ego, that there has never been,- it appeared only because you were not aware, because you were keeping your own existence in darkness- the day it is understood that the ego is a creation of an unconscious mind, the ego disappears, and simultaneously death disappears.
Don’t wait for death to remind you to live.
Death is a perfect mirror for life.
It clarifies priorities. It will point out the way to the heart from which the best sort of changes naturally arise: compassion and loving kindness, generosity and courage.
