Sahaja Yoga Meditation is practised by many thousands of people around the world. Its popularity has grown steadily since it was founded in 1970, by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. There are many centres in Australia and around the world that have been established to offer the public an opportunity to experience this simple meditation.
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 day to day 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!
Research conducted in Australia and elsewhere indicates that Sahaja Yoga meditation can improve physical and mental health plus reduce stress. Recent studies suggest that Sahaja Yoga meditation is unique even when compared to other forms of meditation. People who meditate regularly, using Sahaja Yoga for around 20minutes a day, find they become healthier, calmer and much more relaxed, with an improved outlook on life.
Sahaja Yoga aims to address emotional, mental and physical imbalance by awakening our innate spiritual potential. This is a simple but profound experience that naturally enables us to harmonise and integrate our life in a more positive way. Regular meditation naturally eliminates a lot of the inner stress and tension that we experience on a day to day basis.
