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.
Through the practice of Sahaja Yoga, our awareness gains a new dimension where absolute truth can be felt tangibly – on our central nervous system. As a result of this happening, our spiritual ascent takes place effortlessly and physical, mental and emotional balance are achieved as a byproduct of this growth of our awareness.
We then realize that we are not this body, mind, ego, conditioning, emotions or intellect, but something of an eternal nature which is always residing in our heart in a pure, undisturbed state – the Self or Spirit. The Spirit is the source of true knowledge, peace and joy.
This knowledge is ancient, but for a long time it was available only to a few souls, kept secret and transmitted from guru to disciple, hence 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, thanks to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
