WEEK 1 (Day 1 to Day 7) Awakening – Connecting with your spirit | Monday 10th to Sunday 16th January 2022
DAY 1: Know thyself | Monday 10th January 2022

We are not this mind, this body, these emotions. Beyond the material world that surrounds us, we are something much higher, more subtle. With Sahaja Yoga meditation, find your true Self and know who you really are.

DAY 2: Seeking the truth | Tuesday 11th January 2022
We are seekers of truth, but why are we seeking? The need comes from our evolutionary process of a living energy within us. But first, we have to know within what we are really seeking.

YouTube player
DAY 3: The journey within | Wednesday 12th January 2022
We must become the Spirit, which is the reflection of God within ourselves. When we meditate, we take a journey within towards God.

YouTube player
DAY 4: The source of love | Thursday 13th January 2022
Spirit is the source of love within us. Become the spirit and enjoy the love.

YouTube player
DAY 5: Drop in the ocean | Friday 14th January 2022
In meditation we become a drop in the ocean. The microcosm becomes macrocosm. Our being becomes part and parcel of the whole.

YouTube player
DAY 6: Become the truth | Saturday 15th January 2022
Beyond seeing and understanding the truth is becoming the truth. When we become one with the whole, we enjoy the balance. It is real and perfect bliss.

YouTube player
DAY 7: Thoughtless awareness | Sunday 16th January 2022
When we are in meditation, we are in thoughtless awareness in which the Divine works. There is no thought, no reaction, only pure joy.

WEEK 2 (Day 8 to Day 14) Nurturing – Cleansing your subtle body | Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd January 2022
DAY 8: Vibratory awareness | Monday 17th January 2022

The time has come for us to recognise the truth completely, through the waves of vibrations. Because inside us a new awareness – a vibratory awareness – has developed. Our awareness has been enlightened.

YouTube player
DAY 9: Letting go of the past | Tuesday 18th January 2022

Truth is beyond beliefs and conditionings from personal experiences and background. Let go of the past through meditation, and let it dissolve in the ocean of the present moment.

YouTube player
DAY 10: The pure desire | Wednesday 10th January 2022

The power within us has to rise, which has to manifest itself, because of our pure desire. Why are we meditating? It is for the pure desire of compassion and love to be awakened within us.

YouTube player
DAY 11: Spontaneity | Thursday 20th January 2022

Our enslavement to matter stops us from seeing the Spirit. Spontaneity is the beauty of the Spirit and Self-Realisation is a natural and spontaneous process. It is the next step in our evolution.

YouTube player
DAY 12: Joy of the spirit | Friday 21st January 2022

When the vibrations are flowing, the Spirit is emitting through our central nervous system, the joy that is the quality of our Spirit. When you start feeling the joy, you don’t want to give up.

YouTube player
DAY 13: Beyond the mind | Saturday 22nd January 2022

Without Self-Realisation, we are not in touch with reality, with the all-pervading power, which is everywhere in a very subtle way. It is absolute, which is beyond thought, beyond mind.

YouTube player
DAY 14: Practical well being | Sunday 23rd January 2022

Meditation is the only way you can grow. Meditation is a thoughtless state of balance. It is a silent joy. Learn some practical tools to balance your subtle body.

YouTube player

WEEK 3 (Day 15 to Day 21) Deepening – Strengthening your connection | Monday 24th to Sunday 30th January 2022
DAY 15: Introspection | Monday 24th January 2022
To introspect is to reflect the light within and see for ourselves: how far I have come and how far I have yet to go.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 16: Purify your attention | Tuesday 25th January 2022

Spiritual growth is to be achieved by purifying our attention, and to purify this attention is to keep our Agnya Chakra open and be in thoughtless awareness. Watch where your attention is.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 17: 6 enemies of the soul | Wednesday 26th January 2022
As a person grows in their love, all the enemies of the soul – lust, anger, greed, jealousy, attachment, and vanity – gradually get dissolved.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 18: The sound of silence | Thursday 27th January 2022
Sound waves can carry vibrations, and sounds with the right vibrations can clear out our chakras.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 19: Detached witness | Friday 28th January 2022
Once we are detached in our witnessing state, the pure love automatically starts flowing. Try to witness everything in its reality and see for yourself how and why you are attached to something.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 20: Collectivity | Saturday 29th January 2022
To be collective is to be joyous, to progress. Now we have entered the Kingdom of God, we are part and parcel of a collective being. We are no longer alone.

(Video coming soon)

DAY 21: Surrendering | Sunday 30th January 2022
If you are surrendered, your power of love is heightened. It is joyous to surrender because you are not sacrificing anything but your own ego.

(Video coming soon)

RESOURCES - Welcome to Sahaja Yoga Meditation

Welcome to Sahaja Yoga Meditation

“You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the Power that created you.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

Your Self Realisation
Today, you have been introduced to Sahaja Yoga Meditation and received your Self Realisation. Self-Realisation occurs when the Kundalini, a mothering energy within all of us, is awakened and connects us to the all-pervading power.

Meditation
Through regular meditation, we strengthen our Kundalini to cleanse and balance our energy centres (chakras). Meditation allows us to go beyond our thoughts (thoughtless awareness) to experience inner peace and silence. Regular meditation only takes a few minutes and really works!

Try the meditation
Sit quietly for a few moments and hold out your hands, palms upward, towards the photograph. You may feel a cool or warm breeze and your thoughts may quieten. Continue meditating in silence for 5 to 10 minutes.

HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

About Sahaja Yoga Meditation
True meditation is a personal experience, where one goes beyond thoughts, worries, and upsets. One is calm and peaceful through ‘thoughtless awareness’- that is, no unwanted thoughts but fully aware. Sahaja Yoga meditation is used by millions globally, with minimal disruption to daily routines, to actually achieve inner balance, joy and improvements in mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Sahaja, Saha means ‘with’, Ja means ‘born’. Born with you. That is spontaneous. Yoga means Union with the Divine. So, Sahaja Yoga is the spontaneous union of your Self with the Divine.

Who is Shri Mataji?
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (or ‘Mother’, as she is affectionately known) founded Sahaja Yoga meditation in 1970. For over 40 years, she gave thousands of lectures and taught millions around the world how to meditate easily. Born in 1923 in India, she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and was very involved in India’s fight for independence. She was a mother and grandmother and a descendant of an Indian royal family.

The Subtle System
Overlaying our nervous system, resides a subtle system comprising of energy channels (‘Nadis’, see A to C on diagram) and centres of energy (‘Chakras’, see 1 to 7 on diagram). This system looks after our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being. Upon ‘Self Realisation’, our spirit is awakened, and the subtle system connects to the all-pervading life force that nourishes and balances it through true meditation.

The Subtle System

How do I learn more?
To help you understand this new experience, you are invited to free online courses or weekly classes where collective meditations will establish your Self Realisation. You will learn how to maintain inner balance throughout the day and read and correct any imbalances in your subtle system. Classes are held in over 100 countries worldwide. Suitable for newcomers and regular meditators. No booking needed and everything is provided. Classes are always free of charge.

Meditation music with Didgeridoo instrument.
The didgeridoo is a wind instrument, played with continuously vibrating lips to produce a continuous drone while using a special breathing technique called circular breathing.

The Didgeridoo represents the earthy sounds of the Mooladhara chakra which is located at the base of the spine. The chakra has the qualities of innocence and wisdom and manifests in Uluru (Ayers Rock) located in central Australia. The Mooladhara chakra is symbolized by the elephant headed child – Shri Ganesha.

RESOURCES - Glossary of Terms

While participating in our sessions, you will come across several terms that may be new to you. This is an overview of the most commonly used terms…

All Pervading Power
God Almighty. Known by many names including Shiva, Allah and Yaweh.

Attention
The faculty of applying the mind and interest. Under pressure it can become short-spanned and undisciplined but through Sahaja Yoga Meditation the faculty can become focused and productive.

Balancing and Clearing
If the attention is majorly focused on right-sided activities (thinking, action, the future) or left side (reflection, emotion, the past) blockages can occur. Meditative clearing removes these blockages and allows the system to gain balance in the centre (mental silence, peace, now).

Catches
Catches occur when the efficient function of chakras is impaired. These catches block the passage of kundalini and are the causes of varying problems. When these damaged charkras are repaired through meditation the problems disappear.

Central Channel
This is the channel through which the kundalini flows. It is opened when self realisation takes place and it is the through-flow of kundalini which brings about real and enriching meditation.

Chakras
These are the subtle energy centres located at the main nerve plexuses along the spine. There are seven main chakras in the human system and they relate to stages of evolution, the seventh, at the top of the head being activated by self realisation.

Cool Breeze
The energy manifested from the top of the head when self realisation takes place. It can be felt as a warmish breeze-like sensation. After meditation the energy cools down and is known as the cool breeze.

Difference between Yoga and Meditation
Yoga is the union of the kundalini with the great energy of creation that surrounds us (self realisation). Meditation takes place as a result of that joining.

Guru
Spiritual teacher, guide. Someone with their self realisation who assists others to gain their yoga.

Kundalini
The mothering energy that resides in the sacrum bone at the base of the spine. When self realisation takes place this energy uncoils, rising through the chakras and the top of the head.

Inner Peace
Being free from mental activity. Not being concerned with memory or plans but being in the ‘now’.

Joy
Happens when deep meditation takes place. A all-embracing sense of relaxed well-being.

Kundalini Awakening
Kundalini resides in three-and-a-half coils at the base of the spine. When self realisation or kundalini awakening takes place, this energy uncoils and rises through the chakras to manifest at the top on the head.

Left Channel
This rises along the left side of the spine but at the forehead it crosses into the right hemisphere of the brain to become the superego. It is concerned with emotion, the past, insecurity, conditioning and, if the attention becomes heavily focused into it, it can cause depression and many painful diseases.

Meditation
It is a state of relaxation without mental activity. It is calming, peaceful and opens the inner pathways to health, knowledge and spiritual deepening.

Right Channel
This rises along the right side of the spine but at the forehead crosses into the left hemisphere of the brain to become the ego. It is concerned with action, the future, planning and, if the attention becomes heavily focused into it, it can cause anger, tensions and many painless diseases.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation
The word ‘Sahaja’ in Sanskrit has two components: ‘Saha’ is ‘with’ and ‘ja’ is ‘born’ – the literal translation is “innate”. Yoga means union with the divine. So, Sahaja Yoga means spontaneous and born with you meaning that the kundalini is born within us and can be awakened spontaneously, without effort. This is Self Realisation

Self Realisation
This is the yoga, the union, the joining of the individual spirit with the great energy of creation. It happens when the kundalini (life force) rises from its home in the sacrum bone along the spine and pierces the fontanelle at the top of the head.

Shri Mataji
The founder of Sahaja Yoga. She was born in 1923 in Chhindwara, India. Her father was a lawyer who spoke fourteen languages and was the first Christian Member of the Indian Parliament. Her mother was the first woman in India to receive an honours degree in mathematics. The family was deeply involved in the Indian fight for independence. Shri Mataji married C.P. Shrivastava, a diplomat who became Secretary General of the UN Maritime Organisation. She has two daughters and four grandchildren. In 1970 she discovered a way of granting spontaneous self realisation. She then travelled the world holding programs, giving self realisation and informing people of Sahaja Yoga.

Spirit
The reflection of divinity within each human subtle energy system.

Spirituality
An intense interest in the non-material aspects of life, reality and existence after death

Subtle System
The network of chakras, channels and kundalini which define the nature of a human being at any given time. (See more here)

Thoughtless Awareness
Is meditation. All thinking stops although the consciousness of sounds around us remains. The traditional name for this very pleasant and rewarding state is mental silence.

Vibrations
The cool pulsing that a realised person feels (often on the palms of the hand) when the attention is focused on something or someone in balance.

Yoga
The pathway to, and gaining of, self realisation. Rajah Yoga is the pathway along the right channel, Bakthi Yoga uses the left channel ‘Sahaja means born-with or spontaneous. So Sahaja Yoga draws attention to the fact that the union (self realisation) can be gained spontaneously by way of mechanisms one is born with.
