Sahaja Yoga Meditation Australia is delighted to invite you and your friends to a free screening of a unique documentary, “Freedom and Liberation”.
“Freedom and Liberation” is a biography of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation) who, inspired by her political parents and Mahatma Gandhi, dedicated her youth to the resistance against the British Empire for Indian freedom.
Throughout her entire life, Shri Mataji kept to her vision – a vision which goes beyond the political freedom of her motherland India, a vision of inner freedom and transformation of each individual, a vision that is worth fighting for and that would take her to the five continents to spread her message. A message that has the great capacity to touch people’s hearts and desire for a better life.
“Freedom and Liberation” is the work of young German director, Carolin Dassel, who shows the many stages of this adventurous life in a very subtle way. The timeless impressions and beautiful music, as well as the original locations and archival material, combine to produce an atmosphere of meditative authenticity. The film has now been shown nationally and internationally.

Holy Mother of my soul, complete,
I have surrendered, at Your Lotus Feet,
All the hurt and all the heat,
All the feelings of defeat,
All the anger, all the pain,
All the tension, all the strain,
All the worries, all the fears,
All the years of unshed tears.
Oh! Shri Vishnumaya, dazzling bright,
Chase away the shadows of the night.
Shri Adi Guru, ancient dawning light,
Take away illusion from my sight.
Let the dried-up hot dead sea of strife
Turn to the lush soft garden of vibrant life.
Show me the way to become my own Master,
How to reach my Self in the Virata.
The Way is only You, Your Lotus Feet,
Beloved Holy Mother, my All, Complete.
