Sahajayoga meditation - Inward Journey

Sahajayoga Meditation - Is a unique process, very simple, easy to understand and implement. If one does it regularly on daily basis , his inner journey will bring about total transformation, worth experiencing and enjoying throught the life.


Meditation is a state of consciousness which is beyond the mind. We cannot do meditation, we have to be in meditation. It is a state of pure awareness, where we are alert and fully aware, but without any thought. It is normally difficult to have no thought in one's mind, but our Kundalini helps us a lot to achieve this state effortlessly, once it is awakened through Self Realization. Sahaja Yoga enables us to achieve precisely that.
In a lecture delivered in Sydney in March 1983, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, talks about man's seeking for this lost inner paradise of eternal happiness, and what is at the end of the journey.

The enjoyment of life is only possible if the world could get connected to the spirit… You become the Spirit as Christ has said in simple words that
you have to be born again
Divinity is not a fashion. It is the way of life. It is the need of your being.
You have to become that
"Now you all have realized by this time that within us lies the peace, the beauty, the glory of our being. There's an ocean of all that. We can not seek it outside. We have to go within - what they call "in the meditative state" [where] you seek it, you enjoy it. Like when you are thirsty, you go to a river, or you go to an ocean, and try to quench your thirst. But even the ocean cannot give you sweet water. So, how can anything that is spread outside give you that deep thing that is within you. You are trying to find it outside, where it does not lie. It is within us, absolutely within us. It is so simple because it is your own. It is within your reach. Just there. Whatever you have been doing - going out to find the joy, the so-called joy, so-called happiness, so-called glory of worldly powers and worldly possessions - you have to reverse it back, the whole thing. You have to project 'within yourself.' It was not wrong that you went out. You should not feel sorry for what you have done so far […]
It has worked in so many people, that you have entered into that subtler understanding. Some people are only at a mental level, maybe, doesn't matter. Maybe some are only at a physical level that they can feel it. Doesn't matter. But you are on the correct lines. You are moving correctly.
Try to meditate. Meditate more, so that you reach that inner being. And this inner being is the vast ocean of bliss which exists in every one of us. [It is] the vast flood of light, that floods everybody's inner beauty. So to approach it, you have to go "within" yourself - by denying things which are against it, against your movement.
Sometimes the wind can be very very strong for you to not understand that the glory of God is within - but turn back. Every movement remember, that your movement has to be inward. When you move inward, you forget the ideas of your outer glories […]
It is an individual journey towards God.
When you meditate and when you reach there, then you become collective. Before that it's an "absolute individual journey within". It's absolutely individual journey!
You should be able to see this; that in this journey nobody is your relation. Nobody is your friend. You are absolutely alone. 'Absolutely alone'. You have to move alone within yourself. Don't hate anyone. Don't be irresponsible, but in meditative mood you are alone. No one exists there. You alone. And once you enter into that ocean then the whole world becomes your whole family. The whole world is your own manifestation. All the children becomes your children. And you treat all people with equal understanding
The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside 'your' spirit and start seeing through eyes of the spirit. There's such calm, such peace, such bliss within you. You have to be ready for that journey. That journey is alone in your meditativeness. And the more you find something in your meditation, the more you want to go and distribute it to others. That has to be. If that does not come into you then it has not worked out; there is no purity; there is some sort of a bias. In that individual pursuit, whatever you find, you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of the person who has been really meditative. The one who has been meditative and has not been able to distribute what he has found is cheating himself and cheating others as well. Because that joy that you receive in your meditation has to be distributed. Has to be given. Has to be shown. It should flow in your being as the light radiates from every illumined lamp. You don't have to take a vow to say that this is an enlightened light. In the same way a saint should not have to be certified that he is a saint. The depth you achieve within yourself spreads all over. It is such an action and reaction. The deeper you become, the radiation is much more. [A] simple, very ordinary person, uneducated person, can be like that. We have you know, one gentleman called as Varick in Bombay. He is an old man, and is so deep. He radiates love. He's so meditative. You don't have to spend too much time on meditation. But whatever time you spend, whatever you gain, has to be visible outside - how you radiate and how you give it to others. […] Everyone of you has to decide for oneself."

What is Sahajayoga and its main idea

Following is the extract of the interview given by Mataji Nirmaladevi describing in brief the Sahajayoga and its main idea and related things.
Question: Shri Mataji, what is Sahaja Yoga? I mean, what is the main idea of it?
TV Interview ORF (Vienna, Austria ’88)
Interviewer: Shri Mataji, what is Sahaja Yoga? I mean, what is the main idea of it?
Shri Mataji: Sahaja, Saha means with, Ja means born. Born with you. That is spontaneous. Yoga means Union with the Divine. Now, many people in the modern times won’t believe there’s anything like Divine. But supposing I say, “There is,” with an open mind of a scientist you must accept it as a hypothesis to begin with. Now, we have the Divine power, very subtle power everywhere, but we can’t feel it. With our human awareness we cannot feel it. With human awareness we also don’t know the absolute truth, we live in a relative world. So there has to be a breakthrough. And the breakthrough has to take place in our evolutionary process. And Sahaja Yoga is the method which gives you that breakthrough.

Interviewer: How does it do this?
Shri Mataji: Now, within us is placed – is a energy which we call as Kundalini in Sanskrit language, which is a residual energy in the triangular bone called as Sacrum also means sacred bone, so maybe the Greeks knew about it. It rises like a primule in a seed, passes through six centers and pierces through the last one here and gives you what we call as the Self Realization or real baptism – real.
Interviewer: How does it do this?
Shri Mataji: Now, within us is placed – is a energy which we call as Kundalini in Sanskrit language, which is a residual energy in the triangular bone called as Sacrum also means sacred bone, so maybe the Greeks knew about it. It rises like a primule in a seed, passes through six centers and pierces through the last one here and gives you what we call as the Self Realization or real baptism – real. That’s what it is. And then, on your central nervous system – on your central nervous system you can feel the existence of this All pervading Power. You can feel all around you there’s Cool Breeze. And you can feel on your fingertips your own centers which are subtle and the centers of another person, which Jung has described that one has to be collectively conscious. It’s a happening that has to take (place) within ourselves. It is not mental, it’s not physical, it’s not emotional – it’s beyond that.
Interviewer: Technically how does it happen?
Shri Mataji: Technically, medically, we can say that human beings in emergency can use their sympathetic nervous system. But the parasympathetic system is the one which brings them back to normal. Like supposing you want to run – there’s an emergency, then your sympathetic goes into action, you run fast, your heart becomes very fast, and it comes to its normal state by the activity of the parasympathetic, which is in the center. When the Kundalini rises She nourishes this parasympathetic nervous system and you become in charge of that. You can handle your parasympathetic nervous system.
Interviewer: How do you induce or raise the Kundalini in other persons?
Shri Mataji: Kundalini. There is no technique about it, because it is a living process, it is spontaneous. It’s something like seed has to be put in the Mother Earth so it sprouts. It’s that simple. Even if you put your hands towards Me like this you can get your Realization.
Interviewer: This is a wonderful example, to place a seed into the soil, and seeing it – yes.
Shri Mataji: Yes, it’s spontaneous. It’s a living process.

It is a very simple, easy, well proven system of self improvement created and propagated by Mataji Nirmaladevi. Everyone shoiuld try to get benefit of it and spread it in the interest of the world as a whole.

Health Benefits of Sahajayoga

It is a very common and unique experience of Sahajayogis all over the world that with practicising sahajayoga on daily basis,results in physical fitness, reduction in stress level, balancing of mind and body, controlling blood pressure , diabetes and asthama also.

The only requirement is that one must have faith in Mataji Nirmaladevi and surrender to her with a request to bestow her divine power for healing various ailments you are suffering from.
Following are some of the observations on physical benefits of sahajayoga in various countries of the world.

Health benefits
Sahaja Yoga is considered across the world as a holistic approach to health care. There are countless cases where people practice Sahaja Yoga have overcome illnesses including Asthma, Cancer and aids.
As you practice Sahaja Yoga mediation, every cell of the body is nourished and rejuvenated, resulting in natural improvement in ones health.
One of many examples of how Sahaja Yoga has improved individuals health comes from Madrid. Doctors had given up on Emilia Moreno's condition of Polyarteritis Nodosa. She had lived in a state of semi-paralysis for 20 years - she could barely walk or use her hands. After attending the Sahaja Yoga health centre in Navi Mumbai for a couple of months, she wrote in her farewell note stating : "I was not able to balance and my eyesight was poor. Today I can walk and write and paint ... ."
Several studies are being currently undertaken in Australia, Russia, India and the UK to show the therapeutic effect of SY on several physiological and mental diseases and disorders. The studies so far published have shown that :
Epilepsy: Several months of Sahaja yoga meditation reduces the number and the duration of epileptic attacks in patients with epilepsy. It has also been shown to improve the clinical electro-encephalographic pattern of epileptic brain activation (Rai, 1993, Panjwani et al., 1995, Usha, 1991, Gupta et al., 1991 (link to Gupta), Yardi et al., 2001)
Asthma: Patients with asthma and with hypertension have been shown to significantly improve with SY meditation. The improvement relate to a significant reduction in the number of acute asthma attacks and an improvement in\ their lung function (Manocha et al., 2000, Rai, 1993, Chugh, 1997).
Depression: A study in the UK has shown that several months of SY meditation significantly reduced the depressive symptoms in patients with major depression, as opposed to control patients treated only with behavioral therapy (link to paper: Morgan et al., 2001).
Drug abuse: Sahaja Yoga meditation has been shown to have impressive effects on reducing drug consumption in 501 drug abusers treated for a year with Sahaja Yoga meditation at the University of Vienna. 97% of chronic drug consumers stopped taking drugs, 42% after the first week of meditation, 32% after the first months. (Hackl, 1995).
Diabetes and Menopause: As yet unpublished studies from Melbourne University in Australia have shown beneficial effects of Sahaja Yoga meditation on diabetes and menopause. Details will be available in the future
