What Is Sahaja Yoga Meditation?

In the words of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi…

What was promised in all Scriptures

“Sahaja Yoga is a system by which your attention enters into your Spirit; it’s an actualization. It is not talking, it is not sermonizing, it is not conditioning, but it is a happening. And this happening takes place within us because we are made that way. God has created us specially for this last happening within us, where we become connected with our Spirit, and thus we become connected with the Spirit of all the people and actualize the experience of collective consciousness. It’s no question of giving any, what you call the brainwashing about it; it’s just a happening that has to take place within you. And this has been promised in all the scriptures: they say it is your second birth or they may say it is Self-Realization; and there are many other words people have used but it is just the same.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 26 July 1979, extract from public programme, Enfield, London, UK.

It is an ancient knowledge but now available for everyone

“When the Kundalini flows into you and fills you up with vitality, you become extremely dynamic and at the same time extremely compassionate, kind and mild. You feel that you are protected and thus you are confident but not egotistical. Your whole personality changes. This is the kind of global transformation which is taking place with such a speed all over that I, myself, am surprised at how it is working out so fast.
Actually, this knowledge existed a long time back but my contribution, if there is any, is that we can now achieve en-mass Realization. Thousands can achieve mass Realization. It is a gift of this time where it was predicted that such a global transformation will take place. The power of Kundalini is the pure desire of attaining your self-hood. If someone doesn’t want to have it, you cannot force him because the Divine respects the freedom of that person.” – Shri Mataji


Your Attention starts creating peace and harmony

“Self-realization can be attained easily if the people have a sincere and pure desire to get their self-realization. It works better for people who are wise, who are more in the center, and it works very fast.  Thus you become very powerful and at the same time you understand that you are now glorified and you start behaving in a very dignified and a very sensible manner. This is how a new culture is born and this new culture takes you, in a way, into a new style of life where you become innately righteous. Nobody has to tell you: “Don’t do this” and ”Don’t do that”. It is all achieved through your enlightened attention. This enlightened attention is also full of power. Wherever you put your attention it works, it creates peace, it creates harmony and also it creates a new dimension of collective consciousness.” – Shri Mataji
