Setting up a comfortable meditation corner is a great step towards stronger meditations. We recommend having your meditations in the same place everyday, because the vibrations from your Kundalini awakening will settle down in this space and help you enter into meditation more easily over time. (However, do not let yourself be deterred from meditating if it is not possible for you to have such a permanent space.)
Place the photograph of Shri Mataji respectfully on a clean table or shelf and light a candle in front of the photo. It is preferable to put a cloth under the photo and to place the photo in a frame. Place the photo approximately at eye level, so that you can see the picture clearly.
Lighting a candle and incense will help to clear the atmosphere for entering into meditation. You will notice that your Kundalini responds immediately to the image of Shri Mataji. Therefore, experiment with meditating in front of a photograph of Shri Mataji, and see the difference for yourself.
Attending a group meditation
Your presence in the group meditations will deepen your meditation and provide a gradual awareness and knowledge about the body and one's behavior. You will also learn helpful techniques that can be applied to clear the chakras and further the knowledge of one's inner self.
There are no fees in Sahaja Yoga for we cannot pay for our birthright. And there is certainly no obligation to attend. Your presence at any time is not only helpful to yourself, but it also helps others to deepen their experience – so please know that you are always welcome.
This meditation room is designed for those who have completed our 10 part online meditation course.

"Only after Self-Realization, and only then, is there a direct experience of the Spirit. It then manifests its powers in the human personality, and it's light enlightens the consciousness into a new awareness. The divine intelligence of the Spirit radiates on all sides." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
More than you could ever dream of can now be yours by knowing yourself, being one with your spirit, becoming the spirit that you are.
You who have found Sahaja Yoga, you have opened the door to all this. To the love and beauty of nature, of all humanity, and of yourself.
It is now up to you if you wish to walk through the door. We the Sahaja Yogis who have ventured to take that journey are here to help you. But it is your journey, your choice. Meditation is all that is required. It all simply begins to work out beautifully as we enjoy the thoughtless awareness of meditation and let our Kundalini do the work.
About Sahaja Yoga Meditation
In each of us there is a Mothering energy, known for centuries as the key to spiritual enlightenment. It lies dormant, coiled in the Sacrum bone at the base of the spine. It is called Kundalini, meaning feminine coiled energy. When awakened, we feel a gentle cool fountain of energy above the top of the head and cool vibrations on the hands. Sometimes a warm energy is felt as the Kundalini encounters friction in its path - however this will clear to cool vibrations. The awakened Kundalini connects us with our spirit and the universal love that surrounds and pervades everywhere. This union of our spirit with the Divine energy is the true Yoga event - yoga means ‘union’ or ‘yoking’.
Sahaja Yoga means ‘born with you’. Everyone has this energy which can now be awakened spontaneously. With our attention in the flow of cool vibrations above our head, we go into pure thoughtless meditation. Then, with simple short daily practice, we quickly experience the peace, joy and other amazing benefits that this meditation brings. No need to believe, we simply feel the truth as it manifests on our central nervous system.
Founded by Shri Mataji in 1970, Sahaja Yoga is based on principles of spirituality, humility and love that are over 2000 years old.
