What is meditation? Meditation is best understood as a state of “mental silence” in which one is fully alert and aware but free of the unnecessary thoughts or worries that lead to many of life’s daily stresses. This state of silence occurs spontaneously when one learns how to focus on the experience of the present moment, leading to a state of peace and calm. Through a simple process, known as Self-realisation (Kundalini awakening) this meditation state can be quickly established, maintained and, most importantly, enjoyed!

About Sahaja Yoga meditation: Sahaja Yoga is a method of meditation which brings a breakthrough in showingmataji_5s_jpg_jpg_jpg.jpg how to achieve “thoughtless awareness”. It was founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and has now spread worldwide. As the potential to find peace inside and experience the true Self is innate in every human being, it cannot become the commodity of any business and cannot be paid for. Shri Mataji states, “We cannot pay for our spiritual evolution.” Sahaja Yoga classes are free.

“Man in his search for joy and happiness is running away from the Self, which is the real source of joy… now a method has been found to tap the Divine power.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Nobel Peace Prize nomination: When Shri Mataji was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Claes Nobel, Chairman of the United Earth Organization, declared, “Shri Mataji’s discovery brings genuine hope to humanity.”

Sahaja Yoga is a method of meditation which has resulted in a breakthrough in the evolution of human awareness.

Sahaja Yoga was established by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and has since spread all around the world. Self-realisation is the key to self-knowledge, and occurs when a dormant energy (known as Kundalini), located at the base of the spine, is awakened and travels through the subtle energy centres within the body. When it pierces the fontanelle bone area it results in a cool breeze flowing out of the top of the head and on the hands. One feels very relaxed, and experiences a very peaceful meditative state known as thoughtless awareness.
