Impressie van ‘From Medication to Meditation’

Osho speaks in many of his talks on health as a more holistic understanding of the “BodyMindSpirit” complex. His depth of insights into what makes a healthy and whole human being plus the many meditation methods he has developed are a vital part of his overall vision and proposal to humanity.

Although he never gave a series of talks specifically about health issues, he requested and titled this collection of selected material “From Medication to Meditation” which was subsequently compiled under the supervision of his personal physician.

In the foreword, which is a talk by Osho given to the Medical Association in India, he paints his vision of a healthier and more whole future when he says “every hospital will have a department of meditation. It should happen. Then we will be able to treat man as a whole. The body will be taken care of by the doctors, the mind by the psychologists, and the soul by meditation.

“The day the hospitals accept man as a whole, as a totality, and then treat him as such, will be a day of From Medication to Meditation rejoicing for mankind.” Osho

“Western medical science has viewed man as a separate unit – apart from nature. That is one of the biggest faults that has been committed. Man is part of nature;his health is nothing but being at ease with nature.
Western medicine takes a mechanical view of man, so wherever mechanics can be successful, it is successful. But man is not a machine; man is an organic unity, and man needs not only the treatment of the part that is sick. The sick part is only a symptom that the whole organism is going through difficulties. The sick part is only showing it because it is the weakest.” Osho
