"Today is the blossom time when many have to get the blessings of yoga."
"You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the Power that created you."
-- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation
Sahaja Yoga aims to bring meditation into the lives of ordinary people who seek a meaningful spiritual experience in the course of their hectic daily life. The state of meditation is attained through a spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini, a dormant spiritual energy inside every human being. Once awakened, the Kundalini serves as a boundless source of a peaceful and balancing force. "Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced," states Sahaja Yoga's official website (www.sahajayoga.org).
Sahaja Yoga meditation is originally from India and is taught in over 100 countries.
The meaning of Sahaja is "born within", "spontaneous", "effortless" and "natural". The meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga is "union". Hence the meaning of the name Sahaja Yoga is essentially one's very own spontaneous union and connection with the Spirit and the all-pervading. It is a technique of meditation which is simple and natural, yet deeply profound.
Classes are always free of charge based on the principle that inner peace is each and every human being's birthright. We are a registered non-profit organization and have been established in BC since 1981. Sahaja Yoga was founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi quietly transformed lives. For more than forty years, she travelled internationally, offering free public lectures and the experience of Self-Realization to all. She taught the meditation practice to firmly establish and deepen this inner transformation of human beings.
