      This is one of Tilopa's special
      methods. Every Master has his own
      special method through which he has attained, and through which he would
      like to help others. This is

      Tilopa's specialty:

      LIKE A HOLLOW BAMBOO REST AT EASE WITH
      YOUR BODY.

      A bamboo, inside completely hollow...
      When you rest, you just feel that you
      are like a bamboo: inside completely
      hollow and empty. And in fact this is
      the case: your body is just like a
      bamboo, and inside it is hollow. Your
      skin, your bones, your blood, all
      are part of the bamboo, and inside
      there is space, hollowness.

      When you are sitting with a completely
      silent mouth, inactive, tongue
      touching the roof and silent, not
      quivering with thoughts, mind watching
      passively, not waiting for anything
      in particular, feel like a hollow
      bamboo -- and suddenly infinite energy
      starts pouring within you, you are
      filled with the unknown, with the
      mysterious, with the divine. A hollow
      bamboo becomes a flute and the divine
      starts playing it. Once you are empty
      then there is no barrier for the
      divine to enter in you.

      Try this; this is one of the most
      beautiful meditations, the meditation
      of becoming a hollow bamboo. You need
      not do anything else. You simply
      become this -- and all else happens.
      Suddenly you feel something is
      descending in your hollowness. You
      are like a womb and a new life is
      entering in you, a seed is falling.
      And a moment comes when the bamboo
      completely disappears.
