Shri Mataji describes how within our sacrum bone, lies 3 and a half coils of Divine energy which can connect us to the All-pervading Power of truth, which is a very subtle energy. Through Her Self-Realisation process, we get connected with that Power which we can feel on our fingertips as a subtle cool breeze.

Founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation, Shri Mataji dedicated her life to helping humanity realise its innate spiritual nature through an experience known as Self Realisation. Her core teaching is that within us all lies a transformative potential, which can be awakened through Self Realisation and by doing so, we can bring peace and wellbeing to ourselves, our families and society.
