Society can be transformed totally if small children start meditating. OSHO
Society can be transformed totally if small children start meditating.
They are not serious so they are very ready for meditation.
They are joyful, playful. They take everything in fun.
Sometimes it happens that when a small child comes to take sannyas and I tell him 'Close your eyes' he closes the eyes and he enjoys it as nobody else enjoys it.
The very idea that he has been taken so seriously rejoices him.
He sits silently.
Sometimes I have seen grown-up people looking, just opening their eyes a little to see what is happening.
But small children, when they close their eyes, they really close them.
They close them very hard because they are afraid they will open if they don't do it hard.
They really do it hard. They bring their total energy there because they know that if they are not doing it totally then the eyes will open and they will start looking to see what the matter is, what is going on.
I have seen them really closing their eyes. And to see a child sitting silently is one of the most beautiful things you can come across.
Children can be taught meditation more easily because they are not yet spoiled. When you have been spoiled the hard work is to help you to unlearn.
