World Mental Health Day

Sahaja Yoga Meditation for Mental Wellbeing

Free meditation events during October 2018
ACT • NSW • QLD • SA • VIC • WA
See locations below

To support the World Health Organisation’s recognition of World Mental Health Day, you are invited to a meditation class to learn how research in Australia and overseas is indicating that Sahaja Yoga meditation can improve mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues and mobilising efforts in support of better mental wellbeing.

Improve mental wellbeing
Research in Australia, and elsewhere, indicates that Sahaja Yoga meditation can improve physical,emotional and mental wellbeing plus reduce stress. Recent studies suggest that this meditation is unique even when compared to other forms of meditation. People who meditate regularly, using this meditation technique for around 20 minutes a day, may find they become healthier, calmer and much more relaxed, with an improved outlook on life. Illnesses and ailments can arise due to imbalances in the subtle system. Through Sahaja Yoga meditation one can correct, balance and nourish the subtle energy centres.

Medical research into the benefits of Sahaja Yoga meditation

Integrate our life
Sahaja Yoga meditation aims to address emotional, mental and physical imbalance by awakening our innate spiritual potential. This is a simple but profound experience that naturally enables us to harmonise and integrate our life in a more positive way. Regular meditation naturally eliminates a lot of the inner stress and tension that we experience on a day to day basis.

Unlock the hidden potential
This is an opportunity to experience inner peace and the mental silence that comes from true meditation. You can unlock the hidden potential that exists in all of us, to help us manage our lives in a balanced and centred way.

What is Self Realisation and how to establish it through meditation.

Millions around the world are enjoying our free Sahaja Yoga Meditation since it was started by HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi on 5th May,1970. Her meditation enables en-masse Self-Realisation. Self-Realisation is the key to thoughtless awareness, also known as mental silence, and is the basis of good health and wellbeing. Sahaja Yoga meditation provides this experience.

“When you get your Self-Realisation, you become the Spirit. And your attention is enlightened by that spirit. You become a witness of the whole world like a drama. This enlightened attention is a very powerful means of spreading divine vibrations” – Shri Mataji

Commemorating H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi’s 95th Birthday – 21st March

Commemorating H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi’s 95th Birthday

Today, on 21st March, we celebrate Shri Mataji’s 95th Birthday – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation. Shri Mataji is honoured around the globe for dedicating her entire life to the spiritual ascent of humankind.

Enjoyed by millions

Initially started in 1970, her Sahaja Yoga Meditation is present today in more than 100 Countries and is being enjoyed by millions of people around the world, free of charge.

Shri Mataji’s foundation practises and teaches a unique way of meditation that begins with Self Realisation that awakens our inner spiritual mother, the Kundalini. As a result, we experience thoughtless awareness in our meditation that promotes mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being.

Her Vision

Today, on her birthday, we offer this video of Shri Mataji’s Vision and 10 quotes by her that will keep you inspired throughout life.

The Vision – The story of Sahaja Yoga Meditation & H.H Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Quotes by Shri Mataji

  • A star is shining within us and that is our spirit!
  • You are not this body you are not this mind, you are the spirit, and this is the greatest truth.
  • When you get your Self Realisation, you become the Spirit. And your attention is enlightened by that spirit.
  • Self-Realisation makes us humble, replace temper with compassion. The more innocent you are, the more blissful you will be.
  • Meditation is the only way you can grow because when you meditate, you are in silence, you are in thoughtless awareness and then the growth of awareness takes place.
  • Freedom is when you really get your own powers which are within you. In your central nervous system and in your conscious mind, you must feel the existence of the spirit.
  • After Self Realisation, it is easy to perceive the truth that all these religions were born on the same tree of spirituality, but that those in charge of each religion plucked the flowers from the living source and are now fighting each other with the dead flowers of merely partial truths.
  • You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the power that created you.
  • The blossom time has come. The time of transformation has come. And thousands have to be transformed. You have to know the meaning of your life because you were created for a purpose.
  • Meditation is the only way you can enrich yourself with the beauty of reality.
