About Self Realization

Each year, on the 5th May, we celebrate the opening of the Sahasrara (crown) chakra by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970. Self-realization is the awakening of the Kundalini, a subtle mothering energy within us that connects us to the Sahasrara which is seventh chakra of our subtle being. This enables us to experience inner balance and joy through true meditation. Sahaja Yoga meditation provides this experience.

Shri Mataji was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and received the UN Peace Medal in 1989. She is the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation, which is practised now in over 100 countries.

The Subtle System

The Subtle System. The Sahasrara (crown) chakra is number 7 in the above drawing.

“When you get your Self-realization, you become the Spirit. And your attention is enlightened by that Spirit. You become a witness of the whole world, like a drama. This enlightened attention is a very powerful means of spreading divine vibrations”.

“Self-realization makes us humble … replace temper with compassion … the more innocent you are, the more blissful you will be”.

Shri Mataji – Founder of Sahaja Yoga

“You must feel your depth.”

“Firstly, you must feel your depth. If you don’t feel your depth and you are not one with your personality which is so deep, then you cannot enjoy the Self-realization. First of all, you should understand yourself. If you don’t understand yourself, how can you understand other people? You cannot. So first this Sahasrara should be opened out fully: ‘fully’ means complete oneness with the Divine. That is not difficult. Only you have to meditate a little bit and then it will work out. It has worked out in many people. I am very happy to see, and meet such people in Sahaja Yoga who have achieved such a lot of collectivity and also the awareness of a realised-soul.”
