What is Sahaja Yoga?

Sahaja Yoga (Spontaneous Meditation) is a unique method of meditation that brings one into physical and mental balance, creates a new awareness, and, last but not least, gives solid inner peace.

Spontaneous Meditation was created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, and it meets the major need in modern day society for a solution to the everyday problems of stress, anxiety and psychosomatic problems.


SAHAJA is Sanskrit for “spontaneous, natural”, and YOGA is a physical and mental discipline first mentioned by Patañjali in the Yoga Sutra (2nd century BC), but the origins of which are dated to the mid-3rd millennium BCE. Figures and sculptures in classical YOGA postures are seen in various temples throughout India, showing different forms of the discipline.


To begin with, the Kundalini (Sanskrit: “coiled”) energy is awakened, and the practitioner receives his or her Self Realization (this state is called by many names in different cultures, including: Second Birth, Enlightenment, Liberation, Moksha, Satori and Nirvana). Afterwards, through the regular practice of Spontaneous Meditation, one experiences mental silence, balance and inner peace. The process is effortless and has no age or any other types of limitations.
