What is Meditation ?

Meditation is the personal experience of going beyond one's thoughts, worries and upsets, and being in a state of peace and calm, but still fully alert. In Sahaja Yoga, this state is quickly established.

People who can meditate regularly find they become healthier and calmer, with an improved outlook on life. When the inner spirit is awakened and nourished, our emotional, mental and physical problems are solved.

What is Yoga ?

"Yoga" literally means "union" with the universal soul. Most people today associate yoga with the mordern version which offers stretching postures and breathing exercises. This physical exercise was just a small part of the ancient system of Yoga, which aimed at achieving union byawakening the inner Self through meditation. This also involved a deeper understanding of ourselves and why we bahave and feel the way we do.

" Sahaja " means "born with you". In Sahaja Yoga we use the powers which are already within us to achieve a peaceful state of balance, well being and self knowledge.We gain a new awareness of ourselvesand of any inner imbalances which may affect our feelings and our behaviour.

Each individual can validate this for himself.

Through the meditative practices and techniques we can master ourselves, and thus become our "own masters".
