brief introduction to Meditation
tradition of meditation dates back to the
beginning of human history. Thousands of years
ago, Patanjali, an Indian Sage of legend,
described the process by which the capacity
to meditate is actualized. He called it "Self
Realization" since, in the state of meditation,
he experienced an absolute awareness of his

you can achieve and not an activity to be
performed. You can become completely awake,
alert and under full control of your senses
and brain. But without thoughts or very few
in the head and you should feel a sense of
tranquility or relaxation. Initially there
could be other sensations because everybody

With a little practice of Meditation for a
few minutes, once or twice each day, it is
not difficult to derive benefits in many areas
of your life, particularly health. These come

The mechanism by which "Self Realization"
occurred was a closely kept secret that was
handed down from a Guru to his disciple after

Sahaja Yoga meditation is about tapping into

that it exists (Self-Realization) and there
by using it to improve one's life. It is important

of blind faith, it is a Truth, which is physically

Meditation at Home:
In Sahaja Yoga which is Shri Mataji's precious gift to mankind, there are many ways to correct our meditative conditions which are simple and absolutely spontaneous. The following meditation may be done at home.
Sit comfortably on the floor or in a straight backed chair. Rest your hands, palms upward on your lap, fingers pointing in the direction of the photograph of Shri Mataji. The photograph should be placed in front of you (on a table) and lighted candle placed before it. The candle flame has the property of neutralizing negativity as it is released from the human system. Keep your attention on your top of the head. Use the right hand as indicated on the left side of your body to support the movement of the Kundalini upwards. You can use the affirmations silently, repeating them ' inside ' without speaking them ' outside '. Gradually still all thoughts and feel the inner peace. Soon you will feel some tingling on the palm of your hands. It nmay be hot or cold or just like poking with pins & needles. After a while you will feel relaxed and joyful.
