About Shri Mataji


 Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

She quietly transforms lives

For over forty years Shri Mataji traveled the world giving self realization to all, regardless of race, religion or circumstances. She empowered her followers to pass on this valuable experience to others and taught them the techniques necessary to sustain it. She referred to her teachings and practices as Sahaja Yoga.

It is tempting to define Sahaja Yoga as a meditation technique developed by Shri Mataji in the 70’s. After all, meditation is a big part of her teachings. However, Sahaja Yoga is much broader than our modern understanding of meditation. Perhaps the easiest way to describe it is through etymology: “Saha” means “with”, “Ja” means “born” and “Yoga” means ‘’union with the all-pervading power of Divine love’’. This is the power which does all the living work and cannot be felt at the level of normal human awareness. “Sahaja Yoga” indicates that every person has the right to evolve to a higher awareness where he can, not only feel this all-pervading power, but also his own spiritual being. For this to happen, a dormant energy of pure desire has been placed in the sacrum bone of human beings. This feminine energy in Sanskrit language is referred to as “Kundalini” and when awakened, rises and connects the individual with the aforementioned all-pervading power.

Shri Mataji maintained a person’s spiritual potential can be spontaneously awakened. She emphasized that this awakening cannot be purchased. Money has never been charged, nor will it be ever charged for the experience of self realization or teachings of Sahaja Yoga.

The ability to quickly and easily activate our innate, spiritual energy and experience its benefits differentiates Sahaja Yoga from other forms of meditation. With practice, we will be able to direct our own energy and redress mental, physical and emotional imbalances.

Today, more than 40 years after Shri Mataji founded Sahaja Yoga, millions of people around the world practice Sahaja Yoga and share their knowledge of its practices with the public.
