About Sahaja Yoga
Sahaja Yoga is a method of meditation that brings a breakthrough in the evolution of human awareness. It was created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and has since spread all around the world.
Achieve Thoughtless Awareness
Through Sahaja Yoga, you can achieve a state of meditation known as thoughtless awareness. In this state, you experience and enjoy the present moment without any distractions from the past or future. Your consciousness works in flow with your inner energy (Kundalini). Being in this state makes you peaceful and balanced while improving your wellness and relationships over time.
In Shri Mataji's own words: "Global unity of mankind can be achieved through this awakening that can occur within each human being, so that transformation takes place within us. By this process, a person becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. One actually gets the experience of the feeling of the all-pervading divine power as cool breeze. "Know thyself" is the main theme of all the scriptures - it becomes evident, and one reaches the absolute understanding of oneself.
Anyone Can do it
Sahaja Yoga is a simple technique that is easily practiced by anyone, regardless of age, race, or financial status. Seeking a higher spiritual state – a reality full of satisfaction, joy, and peace – is a natural part of the human evolutionary process. Sahaja Yoga meditation plays a fundamental role in achieving the fruits of that spiritual journey. All human beings have the potential to achieve a more peaceful, sustainable, and easily balanced life.
This inner awakening is called by many names:
In these modern times, through Sahaja ("spontaneous") Yoga ("union with one's Self"), this experience has become effortless and available to everyone, for the first time in the history
