“Sahaja Yoga means 'born with you'. 'Saha' means with, 'ja' means born. This right to unite with God is born with you. As soon as you are born a human being, this right you have. And that is why human beings are seeking. They are somehow aware of that right.”Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
What are the benefits of Sahaja Yoga?
Sahaja Yoga meditation works directly on the central nervous system that controls all of our mental, physical and emotional activity. It, therefore, has the potential to dramatically improve our wellbeing by going directly to the source of any problem. The immediate effects of raising the Kundalini, and going into thoughtless awareness, can be felt as a gentle release from our mind and a spontaneous state of bliss where one merely witnesses and enjoys the present moment. However, the effects of reaching this state go far beyond those moments of mental silence.
When the Kundalini rises, she removes the tensions occurring on our central nervous system that cause negative mental, emotional, or physical sensations, and brings our system into balance. Without any concentrated effort, we are relieved from any stress, weight or pain that we may be feeling.
In the long term, this experience becomes stronger. With the regular practice of meditation, the central nervous system is regularly cleansed and becomes more resistant to imbalances. This is how we evolve into a more centered, satisfied and loving person and get closer and closer to the essence of ourselves.
