About Sahaja Yoga meditation

Millions around the world are enjoying our free Sahaja Yoga Meditation since it was started by HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi on 5th May,1970. Her meditation enables en-masse Self-Realisation. Self-Realisation is the key to thoughtless awareness, also known as mental silence, and is the basis of good health and wellbeing. Sahaja Yoga meditation provides this experience.

“Enter into the realm of peace and joy”

“Today the time has come and for thousands and thousands and thousands to get their realisation. This is your birth right. As a human being you all should get your realisation and enter into the realm of peace and joy. You discover your own glory and that of your fellow men. There is a big inner revolution that is coming up which is silent, joyous and is going to change the whole humanity. There is no solution without transformation. No use of talking big big things. The human beings have to be transformed.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Munich October 16th, 1987

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is always free and is practiced in more than 100 countries.
