Sahaja Yoga Meditation (or simply Sahaja Meditation) is a unique method of meditation created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 that has since spread all around the world. ItĀ is a simple and spontaneous technique that is accessible to the average person who is seeking in a spiritual path. Sahaja means effortless or spontaneous and Yoga means connection. Meditation is the state of thoughtless awareness, where the everyday activity of the mind ceases, yet one remains peaceful and aware. The traditional purpose of all meditation techniques is to give us a connection or Yoga with the inner peace and silence that exists deep with in each of us. Sahaja Meditation gives us the ability to use the power already within us to effortlessly and spontaneously achieve a peaceful state of balance, well being and self-knowledge.

There is a growing acceptance of the positive effects of Sahaja Yoga MeditationĀ on the body, brain physiology and clinical effectiveness in disorders of psychiatry [1]. A number of clinical studies have shown evidence for the effectiveness of meditation in disorders of anxiety and attention [2] and a study found that Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a safe and effective strategy for dealing with work stress and depressive feelings [3]. The actualization of such transformation is taking place on a global scale and has been experienced by hundreds of thousands in over 90 countries. It is entirely free of charge, costs nothing for the individual to learn. We invite you to experience it yourself.
