WHAT ARE WE SEEKING?
Our seeking has brought us here. We are seeking spiritual truth. Each of us can take the next step in our evolution through our own will and desire. We all are searching for meaning in life. Our search ends when we connect with the whole.
WHAT IS SAHAJA YOGA?
Sahaja Yoga is the experience of Self Realization. It is a dynamic, living process of evolution. The essential state is inner peace and silence, from where we start to know our true selves. If we have imbalances or problems in our life, Sahaja Yoga teaches simple techniques to achieve balance. Realization is a spontaneous process. It is our birthright so it is available to all free of charge.
The Kundalini is the power of our pure desire within us. It is located in the sacrum
bone. When it rises, we achieve the state of Self-Realization.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF SAHAJA YOGA
Self Realization en masse is now possible through Mrs. Nirmala Srivastava, who we call Shri Mataji. She began Sahaja Yoga in India in 1970. When her husband's appointment to a U.N. position required her to move to England in 1973, she began teaching Sahaja Yoga to the seekers in London. Shri Mataji learned how the seekers of the West damaged themselves through drugs and self-destructive lifestyles. Through her motherly kindness and persistence, and by daily meditation, the seekers became balanced, and were able to find jobs, start families, and settle into a lifestyle of joy and satisfaction. Shri Mataji was born in India in 1923. As befits the founder of a worldwide movement of personal and social transformation, in person she has tremendous gravity and wisdom, while enchanting all who meet her with her
generosity and sense of humour.
Sahaja Yoga sparks a spiritual awakening and union which really is the root of our
existence and well-being, explains Shri Mataji.
According to Shri Mataji, Sahaja Yoga integrates the ancient knowledge of balance
and enlightenment with todays practical realities. Her technique has benefitted so many, it is no surprise that she is honored around the world and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Self-Realization is a soothing, relaxing state. Our mind becomes quiet and we start to
experience things as they are, without the filtering of our busy, analytical mind. For most of us, when the kundalini pierces through the top of our head we will feel a soft,
cool breeze above our head and a cool wind flowing in the palms of our hands.
Once the kundalini is awakened, we need to learn how to nurture the seed that has
sprouted. Through daily meditation, our awareness of ourselves will become more subtle. We will be able to detect which of our subtle centers is out of balance, and how to remove the stress and blockages in our being. After a few months, we can fully master all the techniques of Sahaja Yoga. No-one needs to lecture, advise or dominate us: we become our own guru.
It is a living process to become established in Sahaja Yoga and learn the teachings of
Shri Mataji. These meetings are designed to facilitate this process.
