“As soon as you go into thoughtless awareness you will understand that you have come under the protection of God, and in thoughtless awareness, His light has come into you.”
As the lotus of Sahasrara opens , we go beyond our mind and ego and we enter into the kingdom of thoughtless awareness which is truth, joy, peace and reality. In this state nobody can touch us. Silence is our fortress. Let us meditate to experience this blissful state.

WEEK 3 - PURE REFLECTION OF THE DIVINE | Friday 17th to Sunday 26th June 2022
DAY 12: Innocence | Friday 17 Jun 2022 8PM (Sydney time)
“Innocence Is The Spirit , Spirit Is The Innocence.” Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi 30.08.1992.

In Sahaj Yoga, we become innocent through thoughtless awareness. When we are innocent, we stop reacting, we do not get involved with discussions or arguments. We just watch and the innocence within us rises beautifully. Innocence is a virtue of the Mooladhara Chakra located at the base of our spine. In this session we meditate on our connection to the power of innocence within.

YouTube player
DAY 13: Creativity | Saturday 18 Jun 2022 8PM (Sydney time)
With Love all kind of creative action takes place . And as Love will increase, your creativity will develop. If there is no Love there is no creativity. Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi. 14.01.1983.

The Swathisthana chakra is responsible for creativity in human beings. It gives novel ideas of creativity, producing plans , pictures etc. It also exposes the human mind to abstract ideas by beaming them into his conscious mind. The scientific brain that captures innovative and original inventions about matter – its chemical as well as physical processes receives its impulses from this chakra . After self realisation a person who concentrates on this chakra can suddenly become a great artist. So tonight is when we enrich the creative powers of our Swathisthana.

DAY 15: Peace | Monday 20 Jun 2022 8PM (Sydney time)
I wish Peace for the whole world. I wish Peace to all the countries, all the human beings, in their family, in their hearts. Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi.25.12.1981.

All the theories for universal peace, peace conferences etc. are not the living action of being. They do not bring peace. If there is a war within, there is a constant war without. Since, peace is an attribute of Nabhi Chakra, tonight we awaken our nabhi chakra to establish peace and satisfaction within and hence without.

YouTube player
DAY 16: Self-Mastery | Tuesday 21 Jun 2022 8PM (Sydney time)

“You are not bothered by small petty things of life because you become the witness of the play” 02/06/82

“And when you forgive, you have found that your tension goes away.” 22/04/84

She does not show her big palm to anybody. In spite of being Shri Lakshmi herself, her one hand is shown in the form of giving, and from the other gives shelter. And two hands placed above in which there are lotus, pink in colour.

DAY 26: Divine Diplomacy - Vishuddhi | Wednesday 13 Jul 2022 8PM (Sydney time)
“The diplomacy is not convincing anybody with his intellect or by temper or anything but it is to melt away another person by your goodness, by your good words, by your sweet words, by your forgiving nature. This quality He had and He tried this on many people. It worked on some; it did not work on some. He didn’t feel it’s a failure. It’s the reaction of the another person which is important to be seen.” We will have a very sweet session working on the various methods to imbibe the qualities of Shri Krishna.

Materials Required
– Shri Mataji’s photograph in a frame (recommended natural material)
– Candle and candle stand
– A clean pedestal or table for the photograph and candle

Having this simple and beautiful setup at your home will not only help you get into the practice of meditation, but will also create a positive balance and energy in your home.

Try it yourself and see the difference…

We have found that by meditating in front of Shri Mataji’s photographs, our Subtle system comes into balance and is cleared through the positive vibrations that are emitted from her photographs. As result, we become more relaxed and calmer as we experience the inner joy of the Spirit in our heart. We follow the traditional respect and protocol of not placing our feet pointing towards the meditation table and meditate with shoes removed. We can sit on a chair or floor, whichever is the most comfortable.

If you wish to use Shri Mataji’s photograph, then it’s best to place the photo in a frame and use a small candle in front of the photo when meditating.

You can download Shri Mataji’s photos from the section below “RESOURCES – Shri Mataji’s Photos for Meditation” or contact us at [email protected]

RESOURCES - The Human Subtle System with its Chakras and Nadis
The Subtle System

Our Subtle System consists of 3 Channels and 7 main Chakras. The right and left channels are the physical support of our sympathetic nervous system and the central channel is the physical support of our parasympathetic nervous system.


Energy Centres – the Chakras:

1. The Mooladhara Chakra (Innocence)
1a. The Kundalini (Mothering energy)
2. The Swadishthan Chakra (Creativity)
3. The Nabhi Chakra (Peace)
3a. The Void (the Guru principle)
4. The Anahatha Chakra (Love and Compassion)
5. The Vishuddhi Chakra (Collectivity)
6. The Agnya Chakra (Forgiveness)
7. The Sahasrara Chakra (Integration).

Energy Channels – the Nadis:

A. The Right Channel (Physical and mental activity)
B. The Left Channel (Emotions and desires)
C. The Central Channel (Ascent and spiritual growth)

  • Our Right channel (yellow line), governs our physical, creative or mental activity. It is the channel of action and the future.
  • Our Left channel (blue line), manages our emotions and desires. It is the channel of our past.
  • The Central channel (white line), manages our autonomous functions ( heartbeat, etc…). The Kundalini energy rises up the central channel when we receive our Self-Realisation. It is the channel of our spiritual evolution, the Present.
  • The Chakras – the Sanskrit word “chakra” means “wheel”. These energy centers or chakras ( numbers 1 to 7 in above diagram) correspond to our main nervous plexuses in the body. Each chakra has its own qualities.

By regular practice of Sahaja Yoga meditation, you obtain the knowledge of your chakras, how to improve and look after them, in a very natural and spontaneous way. Your innate qualities start to manifest themselves. You can feel the state of your subtle system and by using simple techniques, you can maintain it in a balanced state.

We give guidelines of these techniques in our weekly classes in your local area. They are always free. Find free classes in your country.

Out of all the energies that sustain us, there is one which is the mother of all other energies. This dormant is of a spiritual nature. It manifests the love that the Divine has for us.

It is called Kundalini and she exists within everyone as a great potential of inner wellbeig. This living energy is waiting to reveal itself to us. Sahaja Yoga meditation starts with the natural awakening of this energy. The spiritual energy that is within us is called Kundalini.

The Kundalini resides in the sacrum bone. This is the triangular bone which is located at the base of the spinal column. When this energy awakens, it activates the central channel and passes through the chakras to come out and can be perceived as a flood, gush, spurt (of coolness) in the fontanelle bone area. Once this energy has been awakened we can perceive its manifestation in a concrete way. A new state of awareness is established within us.

Self-Realisation – the Awakening of the Kundalini mother energy.

As soon as we have felt the condition of our chakras, we can improve them. We have the tools to progress easily with discrimination in our spiritual evolution.

The Kundalini awakening is an indisputable discovery. For the first time, we have the chance to change ourselves and become independent.

RESOURCES - The Hamsa Chakra

The Hamsa chakra, which is part of the Vishuddhi and represented by Canada, is situated between the eyebrows, and has the qualities discretion and discrimination; It’s also called the Lambica chakra.

Treatment for the Hamsa is to put a few drops of slightly warm melted purified butter (Ghee) with a dropper into your nose and sniff it up. It avoids dryness of the inner lining. Apply it at night before sleeping.

Affirmation to clear and strengthen the Hamsa is: “Shri Mataji, by Your Grace, please give me the power of discrimination.”

Shri Mataji talks about the Hamsa Chakra

YouTube player

Advise from Shri Mataji about the Hamsa Chakra
“It is, you know, placed between the two eyebrows and two eyes represent the left and the right side. So this centre is very much guided by our eyes, by our ears, by our nose, tongue, teeth, throat. Is a very important centre because the Vishuddhi, which has to look after sixteen petals, which, sixteen petals, which look after all these ear, nose, throat, different, different organs within us, also it has to communicate with the Viraat. So it has to pass through this centre of Hamsa Chakra. Hamsa Chakra is the very pivotal centre, which expresses auspiciousness in our awareness. That means, if this centre is alert and awakened, then we immediately know what is auspicious and what is not auspicious, or we can call it, we get the Divine Discretion… the light of the Spirit, which shines through your Hamsa Chakra, gives you wisdom. Wisdom doesn’t mean that you know how to argue things or you fight with people. No, it doesn’t mean that! Wisdom means how you take to the good side of everything, to enjoy it, this is Wisdom. And that you avoid all destructive things and take to something constructive.” (1992/09/13)

“Now, how can we improve our Hamsa then? It’s a big problem, because if our Hamsa is sick, is over-conditioned. The Kundalini cannot work on it; it just gives up. Now, so for Hamsa we use all these physical things. Like I said, put the ghee in the nose. Keep it in a way that it is nourished properly. Because Kundalini, if it tries to too much attack the Hamsa, it will have a problem. Problem because, as it is most of our time we spend in such a manner that your Hamsa things become – what you call the epithelial cells, the linings – become dried out. When the Kundalini rises, She may try to create a problem more for that dryness – maybe. So it is kept out, but it has an effect in the sense that even if there is a light outside, it can fall inside.”

“So it’s not the Kundalini directly that affects your Hamsa. It is like when the Kundalini awakens, you yourself see now that a person is, whether he is fair complexion or dark complexion, he is a human being. You reason it out and Hamsa clears up. Then you see yourself that, “Oh, I’m very egoistical.” You start seeing yourself through your Agnya, start seeing that, “I’m so conditioned.” So you reason it out, and that’s how you correct your conditionings. This is what is Hamsa chakra.”

RESOURCES - Shri Mataji's Photos for Meditation

Using Shri Mataji’s photograph for meditation

We have found that by meditating in front of Shri Mataji’s photographs, our Subtle system comes into balance and is cleared through the positive vibrations that are emitted from her photographs. As result, we become more relaxed and calmer as we experience the inner joy of the Spirit in our heart. We follow the traditional respect and protocol of not placing our feet pointing towards the meditation table and meditate with shoes removed. We can sit on a chair or floor, whichever is the most comfortable.

If you wish to use Shri Mataji’s photograph, then it’s best to place the photo in a frame and use a small candle in front of the photo when meditating. Please contact us if you’d like us to email you other photos of Shri Mataji (in different sizes) for your meditation at [email protected]

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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’.

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.

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.

The reflection of divinity within each human subtle energy system.

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.

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.

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.
