About the Meditation
Sahaja Yoga meditation is a method of true meditation which awakens the state of thoughtless awareness through Self-Realisation.The meditation does not evolve any physical exercises or postures but a simple meditation method, which was established by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970. This meditation practice has resulted in a breakthrough in the evolution of human awareness allowing everyone to experience peace and joy.
