Sahaja Yoga Meditation: What is it?
Sahaja Yoga Meditation is an inner yoga: a wonderful, unique method of meditation discovered and taught by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. Sahaja Yoga is a word from ancient Sanskrit language which literally means a spontaneous connection; "yoga", meaning "connection". The potential to achieve this state of Sahaja Yoga meditation is in built within us. The experience of this meditative state in the midst of the confusion of the modern times has been described and foretold in the scriptures.
Sahaja Yoga meditation begins with the experience of self-realization, with the awakening of Kundalini energy with in us. We are able to verify this experience as the waves of cool breeze flowing through our fontanel bone area, palms of our hands and through our being. We would feel thoughtless, calm, peaceful and relaxed and our attention becomes pure and focused. As the Kundalini energy rises, she elongates our thoughts and creates a space between the thoughts, which spreads out and a state of complete silence is created. On our fingertips, we can feel the state of our own subtle being and that of the others. We become empowered and compassionate and loving.
