About Shri Mataji’s life and legacy – Her meditation enjoyed by millions
Shri Mataji – Sahaja Yoga Meditation at Sydney Town Hall 2006
Shri Mataji introduced Her unique meditation in 1970 and people in over 100 countries practise and enjoy it free of charge. Her foundation practises and teaches a meditation beginning with Self Realisation which awakens our inner spiritual aspect. As a result, we experience thoughtless awareness in our meditation which promotes mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
From the time She introduced the technique of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji travelled constantly until the early 2000s, offering free public lectures and the experience of Self Realisation to all. She enabled people to pass this valuable experience onto others, as well as the technique necessary to sustain it through regular Sahaja Yoga meditation. Shri Mataji was born on 21st March 1923 in India and passed away on 23rd February 2011 aged 87 years, in Genoa, Italy. Since 1970, millions have been introduced to Her meditation which is always offered free of charge.

Quotes by Shri Mataji
“Only in meditation you are in present and you grow in your spirituality.”
“If your heart is clean, you can see the other person clearly through and through. Innocence is such a powerful thing.”
“You have to have complete faith in yourself and that your Self is nothing but innocence.”
“In thoughtless awareness nobody can touch you, that’s your fortress.”
“I need this, I need that, I need that. We should know what other people need.”
“You may be very great, you might be very intelligent, you may be earning lots of money, whatever it is. It’s not so important. What is the most important thing is that you are loved.”
