What Is Sahaja Yoga?
“Sahaja” in Sanskrit means spontaneous and also born with,” Yoga” means union with God.
The potential to the spiritual awakening and ascent is inborn in every human being. This potential is possible to be actualized through a unique living process of Sahaja Yoga. This unique discovery has been done by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (in 1970).
The process of Sahaja Yoga is spontaneous and natural. It is a technique to awaken the Kundalini Shakti which lies in the sleeping state at the base of the spine (sacrum bone) of each human being.
The process of awakening this Kundalini (Self Realisation) is a spontaneous and joy giving process, quite contrary to the widespread misinformation about it.
Our Subtle System
- There are seven chakras (energy centers) basically within us.
- These seven chakras are responsible for our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being.
- Once we get our Self Realization we feel these centers in the Subtle System within us.
- As the Kundalini rises and passes through the six centers (which are our energy centers in the spinal cord) and pierces through the fontanel bone area on the top of our head, it nourishes and revitalizes the centers (chakras) so that the person feels relaxed, calm and full of life.
