Experience Your Self Realisation

You can receive your Self Realisation (connection with your Self) while sitting in front of your computer. The only condition is your sincere desire to have it. During the experience you will keep your left hand with the palm upwards on your lap and place the right palm on various parts of the body on your left side, while keeping your eyes closed for the entire duration. This way you will be free of distractions and able to keep your attention inside. Taking off your shoes might also help since the Mother Earth sucks all negativity through our feet.

"I invite you to this feast of Divine Bliss, which is pouring around you, even in this Kaliyuga, in these God-forsaken modern times. I hope you will come and enjoy the spiritual experience of the Life Eternal."

--H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - Part of the letter written in 1972 during Her trip to America


What to do After Self Realisation?

“What is the way to do Sahaja Yoga?”

"There is no hard and fast rule about how to do it. Now, when you have taken your realisation, please go to our centers and learn from there.....

......So, I have no ways and methods. Go to Sahaja Yoga centers. People who already practice will tell you how to practice it and how it should be done. For every individual, Sahaja Yoga has something different to share. So, go to our centers. You will understand yourself, how you can attain your own qualities imbedded within you, and your qualities will progress and you will realize yourself."

--H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - 23-03-1993, New Delhi (India)

As one gets the Self Realisation, the energy centers or chakras in the spinal chord or the central nervous system gets synchronised with the Divine Cosmic Energy for the first time. This positive energy starts flowing within the central nervous system and starts enlightening all the dormant nerves in the Chakras (energy centers). Self Realisation is the most scientific and spontaneous method of meditation gifted to Humanity by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi by which we can achieve our physical, mental, emotional balance and spiritual ascent, thereby healing all our significant organs, thus achieving a healthy body, intelligent mind and beautiful soul.

Weekly visit to Sahaja Yoga meditation Center is as much important as daily meditation at home. We not only add to our knowledge by listening to the lectures of Shri Mataji, but the collective vibrations help to heal and energise our subtle system and the Kundalini Power.

Importance of Daily Meditation and Footsoak

You must get up early in the morning. In the morning, after getting up early and taking your bath, one must sit for meditation. In the morning one must sit for meditation. Like, in our country, we have been getting up early in the morning and washing........................

.................. There is not much to be done: just meditate and keep yourself clean, keep your physical side clean. However, for you I have told you one important thing. As it is said that everyone must go to bathroom and clean oneself after getting up in the morning, similarly, for Sahaja Yogies, it is extremely important to do footsoaking for at least five minutes before going to bed. However highly evolved you may be, and even if you may not be getting caught, but it doesn’t matter: you must do footsoaking for at least five minutes. Even I do footsoaking sometimes, so that my Sahaja Yogies will imbibe this habit. It’s a very good habit. All Sahaja Yogies must do footsoaking for at least for five minutes every day. All Sahaja Yogies should light a lamp before the photograph, apply sindur , dip their feet in the water and sit in this fashion, opening out both the palms towards the photograph. If you do this, more than half of your problems would be solved automatically. Whatever happens, it is not difficult to spare five minutes.

Join Collective Meditation at Sahaja Yoga Centers

Once a seeker experiences the Self Realisation, the Kundalini Awakens and rises towards Sahastrar, She (The Kundalini) recognises who Shri Mataji is and rises in front of Her photograph. In a collectivity, when every Kundalini rises during collective Sahaja Yoga meditation, the new seekers Kundalini also follows and rises alongwith the other Sahaja Yogies Kundalini. This helps in the nourishment of the new Seekers Kundalini and thus we recommend new seekers should attend the nearest Sahaja Yoga Meditation Center once a week for the next three months to attain full benefit of the Self Realisation.

The Sahaja Yogies at the Sahaja Yoga Meditation Center also help the new seekers in experiencing vibrations and answering queries if any. You will also learn about Sahaja Yoga techniques to cure, in case of any physical ailments.

Its Free

Self-Realisation is Priceless

"So one should understand that you are not to pay for this. You are not to pay for what I say to you, or for my lectures, or anything, or for your Realisation, not at all, not a single pie for that. You cannot pay for it. It is so invaluable. ... It is absolutely overflowing. It's absolutely freely coming to you. So you cannot pay for it. It's Love, and Love you cannot purchase."

- H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, London, 1982

Frequently asked Questions

Below questions were asked to H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi by public during a public program on 23rd March 1993 at New Delhi, India during a Public Program. These questions form a good set of queries that the seekers have while starting Sahaja Yoga Meditation. While the below FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) is a good read to understand progress of oneself in Sahaja Yoga, it is always advisable to visit the nearest center weekly during the meditation day, experience your self realisation and do 15 minutes of daily morning meditation and evening footsoak. Your queries would be resolved in the next 2 to 3 months. The list of FAQ's and answers by Shri Mataji are appended below:-

Question: “What is the way to do Sahaja Yoga?”

Answer: There is no hard and fast rule about how to do it. Now, when you have taken your realisation, please go to our centers and learn from there..... 
.....So, I have no ways and methods. Go to Sahaja Yoga centers. People who already practice will tell you how to practice it and how it should be done. For every individual, Sahaja Yoga has something different to share. So, go to our centers. You will understand yourself, how you can attain your own qualities embedded within you, and your qualities will progress and you will realize yourself. Question: “How long does it take to become an expert in Sahaja Yoga?” It’s not about expertise in Sahaja Yoga as it's not a study. As I told you, it is a living process. At what time the tree will bear fruit, you cannot tell. Also, not all trees bear fruit at the same time. The first stage we are to achieve is Nirvichara (thoughtless awareness) and the second stage is Nirvikalpa Samadhi (doubtless awareness). Then you go beyond time. A few people attain this state in as little as two days. A few people take four to five years to reach this state. Question: “Shri Mataji, please forgive me and guide me whether to pray to You as a human or as a god. I am unable to decide. Please guide me.” Answer: Please do not worship Me. When you grow deeper in divinity, your eyes will open and you will understand who I am. I do not want to disclose about Myself. Only My followers tell others who I am. You don’t need to know about Me. When you know yourself, then do as you please. Question: They are feeling the Cool Breeze in the hands; more in one, less in another, and less over the head. “I have a chronic disease due to which I get heavy migraines in my head but I am doing better with some medicine. I hear a lot of noises in my head.” Answer: This fellow should come into Sahaja Yoga completely. Go and visit our center and you will get rid of all your problems. This isn’t a very big problem. You will start getting vibrations on both of your palms and also on your head. Question: “If you are asked for forgiveness, what percentage of forgiveness do you grant?” (Clapping) Answer: I am Mother. I keep forgiving. It’s My nature to forgive. I don’t keep anything in My heart even for a minute. If I have to show anyone that I am upset, I pretend to be angry. I cannot be serious for more than two minutes. I am not a guru or baba. When one man came, he saw Me smiling and was surprised that Mother laughs and smiles. He told Me, “My guruji never ever smiles.” I told him to leave any such guru because it’s useless to follow that person. You are here to enjoy life and have fun in life, not for a state of ritual impurity existing after birth. Question: “Do you believe in rituals?” Answer: Not at all. Rituals are useless. I mean, if we kill insects, insects are to be killed. Whom will I give realisation to? Insects, bugs, hens or goats? All this is useless. You should eat according to your dietary needs. Some people need proteins, some need carbohydrates, according to their state of health. You should eat food which is beneficial and fit for you. Like, people from foreign countries are advised to take more carbohydrates as they are too right-sided. It is simple: if you are right-sided, eat more carbohydrates, and if you are left-sided, eat more proteins. Eat what is right for you. Just avoid eating animals which are bigger in size than you. You will look like them then, and there are lots like them. Question: In a few people, their chakras are not all right, but with meditation will they become all right? Answer: Many people think that if they meditate in their homes it’s an acceptable practice. Let me tell you one thing: not at all. You all have to visit the centers. If people do not come to the centers, we can’t say anything about them, because you get well only in the collectivity. For example, if a nail on My hand is cut off, it cannot grow. You cannot help it; it just dies. Many people claim, “We meditate in our own houses.” It’s not done. You should come and be collective. When you are part of the collective, then you will understand better who you are. Not before that. Everyone should come into collective meditation. Otherwise, you cannot get right. For attaining Nirvikalpa Samadhi, you don’t have to do anything. Just clear your chakras more and get deeper into collectivity. Slowly and gradually, the Nirvikalpa state will happen on its own. You will come into Nirvikalpa yourself. Then I don’t need to tell you anything. Till you are in Nirvikalpa you cannot be called a Sahaja yogi. Question: “Why was the universe created, and why are we made?” Answer: So that you can enter into the Kingdom of God and enjoy. Question: “In India we are poor people, and people abroad are more prosperous, and why are there poverty and abundance?” Answer: Our country is poor because we are not patriotic. Even the politicians are not patriotic here. When we become patriotic we will become prosperous. Question: This is a query by a wife about her husband, that he doesn’t go to shop, he doesn’t work, and his business is falling apart. Answer: Please remove your attention from all these things and put your attention on God Almighty. Get your enlightenment, and everything will be all right. Question: “What should I ask while standing at the door of the Almighty?” Answer: Connection with the Spirit. Once Birbal was asked, “Who are the most disgusting people?” He said, “All those who stand at the gate of God and beg. Whatever you see people do there, in thousands you will get.” Question: “Should we say anything while meditating?” Answer: No, no. Don’t say anything while meditating. Stop saying anything. Later, you will know what mantras are to be used, and when and where. You are talking about mantras. If there’s any trouble with your Shiva’s principle, that won’t be removed by Shri Rama. You can learn the science of mantras. Just learn that. Question: How do I meditate? Answer: Come into Sahaja Yoga. You will learn. It’s very easy, really easy to meditate. Very easy.... ......You don’t have to leave anything. There is no detachment from your wife or family. There’s nothing to leave. What’s there to leave? Stones! Don’t leave anything. There is no need to go to the Himalayas. You will gain from living here within Delhi city. You don’t have to run away from anyone. You have to correct yourself living with them. Question: “It is agreed that in Sahaja Yoga we get cleared, our chakras get cleared, our health becomes okay. What is its role in our daily lives, like job, occupation, and so on?” Answer: You become a perfectionist. Your attention becomes perfect. Your prosperity grows very speedily. In America we gave realisation to one lady who has a shop. She told me, “Mother, before I received my Self-realisation I used to write down in detail all my accounts. Now I have forgotten to do this, but I am making such huge profits that I am unable to understand it.” Your business and professional life is blessed immensely by God’s blessings. Have faith. You will do wonders in worldly things. Your house, family, children, business, are all blessed by Shri Laxmi. You are blessed by Shri Saraswati, too. By the blessings of Shri Kali, you are protected. You get all sorts of blessings in Sahaja Yoga. But before that, just enter God’s Kingdom. You are bothering of congresses and government. Today this government, tomorrow that government; I cannot say anything about the local government. I can only talk about God’s Kingdom. Come into God’s Kingdom and see how miraculously things happen. Not yet; you haven’t come into His Kingdom. Question: “Mother, please fill the entire universe with your love. Fill it with God’s love.” Answer: A very nice thing you have mentioned. This is My thought, too, but it has to be fulfilled only by you. Only you can channel this process. If I could do it all alone, why would I come to you? This will happen only by humanity. Only you will be the medium to do this job. So, please come forward and do this.
