The word "saha-ja" means "born with you" and "yoga" means the union with Divine or the cosmic energy. So Sahaja-Yoga means the power to connect with Divine energy that is innately placed within us. Sahaja Yoga is not a new thing nor it appeared all in a sudden as an accident. It was prophesized by many saints, sages and seers in past. Over 14,000 years ago, Bhrigumuni, the great astrologer of India, prophesized the advent of Sahaja Yoga meditation in his book "Nadi Granth". In his book, he predicted that the Kundalini energy would be awakened spontaneously through Sahaja Yoga. And he predicted that it will happen in mass scale. There are many other old scriptures which has predicted about it what is being actualized in today’s date.
Sahaja Yoga is a real
experience, an actual physical reality verifiable in one's own central nervous system,
which leads to spontaneous improvements in one's well-being and relationship
with the world. Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a non-intrusive, self-regulated
approach to addressing a great need within society. The meditation technique,
which is basis of the spiritual path, is easily learned by the average person.
There is growing acceptance within society of the positive role Sahaja Yoga
Meditation can play in the reduction of stress, leading to an enhancement of
the individual’s physical and psychological well being, and an improvement in
the sense of balance, equanimity and self control. Sahaja Yoga emphasises the
importance of each of us becoming our own master and teacher. Sahaja Yoga
meditation gives us the capacity to gauge our own progress and adjust our
practices accordingly so that we can guide our own development.
The beauty of this meditation is that, it begins with the experience of "self-realization", with the awakening of Kundalini within us. Anyone can verify this experience as the waves of cool breeze flowing through the fontanel bone area, palms of the hands and sometimes through the entire body. In this meditation, one feels thoughtless, calm, peaceful and relaxed. Furthermore the attention becomes pure and focused. When the Kundalini energy rises, our thoughts are elongated, which creates a space between the thoughts. Finally that spreads out and a state of complete silence is created. On the fingertips, one can feel the state of one’s own subtle being and also that of the others. So one does not need to have blind-faith, doesn’t need to put fruitless efforts for years – but can reach to the ultimate and can feel the peace within at the very first day, as it happened with hundreds of thousands all over the globe.
