Improve mental wellbeing

Research in Australia and elsewhere indicates that Sahaja Yoga meditation can improve physical, emotional and mental wellbeing and 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 about 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. You can find out more information in this video.

Gurrumul Yunupingu

Gurrumul Yunupingu

A reader has written to recommend listening to two recent releases of what he describes as remarkable Australian music.

“I have just heard a most incredible Australian CD, Cannot Buy My Soul – The Songs of Kev Carmody.   The musician and songwriter, Paul Kelly, pulled together a stellar cast of the cream of the Australian music scene to host a concert playing the songs of Kev Carmody, an Aboriginal drover turned musician.

“Kev Carmody wrote his songs from the 1960s through to the 1980s.  There is so much dignity and eloquence in these songs, expressing the story from the soul of the Australian Indigenous people.  Sometimes music can express the inexpressible qualities of a country – such is this music. 

“Also highly recommended when contemplating Australian indigenous music is Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu’s  widely acclaimed album, Gurrumul.  There are many good reasons to recommend his music, which is mostly sung in various Indigenous languages, with scenes drawn from the Aboriginal “Dreaming”.
 
“Gurrumul, blind since birth and a former member of the internationally acclaimed band Yothu Yindi, has released an album of quiet beauty.  His voice has been described as having being touched by angels.  If you are interested in some really great Australian music perhaps take a chance to listen to these.”

UluruAustralia is very far off. But this is the land which is the land of purity. This is the land in the universe, is the first centre that you see there, and Uluru that you have – Uluru means, as I told you, is the Chaitanya, is the symbol of that purity. So you stand for the innocence of the world. You are such a great nation here that stands for the innocence … so you have to be careful and understand your own identity as innocent people. And I am sure it will work out very well for all of you. And this country which has many problems will be solved by your own purity, and the whole world can be helped with your own purity and beautiful lives. May God bless you.

Shri Mataji, Sydney, 1990
