What is Sahaja Yoga?


Many of us would have wondered and felt these, at least once in our lifetime as

What is the purpose of this life, its meaning?

Who am I? Why am I born in this earth?

Does God Exist? If yes, how do I feel his presence? Why are people fighting between themselves in the name of religion?

What is the ultimate truth? etc and the list of questions never end.

So where are the answers? The answer is within us- ‘The Self realization’.

This knowledge is ancient, but for a long time it was available only to a few souls, transmitted from guru to disciple, since Self Realization was extremely difficult to achieve.

In these modern times, through Sahaja ("spontaneous") Yoga ("union with one's Self"), this experience has become effortless and available to everyone, for the first time in the history of human spirituality.

Sahaja Yoga is a method of meditation which brings a breakthrough in the evolution of human awareness. It was created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and has since spread all around the world. Sahaja yoga is the ultimate connection with the creator who has created us. It connects the energy within us called the kundalini energy with the cosmic consciousness around us and we get the experience of the feeling of the all-pervading divine power as cool breeze.

In Shri Mataji's own words:

"Global unity of mankind can be achieved through this awakening that can occur within each human being, so that transformation takes place within us. By this process a person becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. Thus one becomes peaceful and joyous in life. One becomes collective as a drop falling into the ocean of compassion.
