A free 4-week course in Sahaja Yoga Mental Silence meditation began on 6 February 2013, and will run during the month of February.
Mental silence meditation is a unique method that allows you to experience peace within, free from the constant chatter of the mind. When the mind is still and silent, you feel a sense of contentment and well-being.
Through the regular practice of Sahaja Yoga meditation, you are able to achieve mental silence. In just a short time, you see positive changes in your life – better physical health, improved relationships and a greater ability to handle stress.
The beneficial health effects of mental silence meditation have been demonstrated by Dr Ramesh Manocha, a respected Australian medical practitioner and researcher. He has conducted research on patients with epilepsy, asthma and menopausal symptoms, and on children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

• One 60-minute class per week for 4 weeks.
• Join in at anytime, even if you miss a class.

When we try to play games with ourselves, we miss the point because it is the Self which is going to emit. It is the Self that is going to give you your glory. It is the Self which is going to bestow all the blessings of divine love and all the securities and all the help that are deserved by you …. So we have to put our life fixed for something that is noble, enlightening and higher. Hypocrisy will keep you always out of it.
So I have to request you to face yourself, love yourself, respect yourself, understand yourself and stand on your self-respect and see for yourself that you are the king of kings, that you are the one who is to be worshipped. You are the one who is the emblem of God’s love. Such a beautiful thing it is.
… With humility, with surrender of your ego, you are worshipping your Self. You are not degrading it, you are not analysing it, but you are absorbing the beautiful power and the light of your Atma into your attention.
Shri Mataji, 21 March 1988
Self is nothing but joy. A joyous person is definitely a person who has got his Self expressing through his joy. Such a person is so joy-giving, so humorous and never degrading to anyone. In every small thing, it sees a beauty. And the nature of every creation is so beautiful….
If you have the problem of unhappiness, just be on the watch-out and see why. Why have you developed this kind of a funny attitude towards everything? Why can’t you enjoy everything? You go on watching this person, that person. You never enjoy. While if you watch the children, it is very interesting….
There was a joke about a child. They had a guest in their house and he was eating. So this child saw that man eating. He said, “Mama, he doesn’t eat like a horse. You said he eats like a horse.”
So that is what they are – very simple, very simple-hearted- and that is how they correct people.
Shri Mataji, London, 22 April 1984
