Sahaja Online provides complete internet-based access to live and do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) Sahaja meditation. It is also the largest free online resource related to Sahaja meditation, including free meditation coaches, scientific research,free meditation videos, downloadable guides and more.

Why is Sahaja meditation free?

Our founder, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi created Sahaja meditation to be completely free to the public because she felt something as precious as an individual’s spiritual ascent can never be equated to money. Our mission is to propagate peace and positivity throughout the world by helping people change within themselves.

What is the difference between live and D.I.Y. Sahaja meditation?

You can practice live or D.I.Y. Sahaja meditation from home, work or while traveling. The difference is that live sessions require an internet connection and D.I.Y. sessions can be done ‘offline’ by yourself.

Can Sahaja conduct a live meditation program at my organization, work location or nearby venue?

How is Sahaja different from other forms of meditation?

Sahaja meditation is for regular people just like you - not just mystics and monks. Without yoga mats, stretching, or spa music, Sahaja is much more than your average relaxation technique. Practiced by people of all ages and walks of life, Sahaja is a deep, self-improvement journey that can also take you to the depths of spirituality, if you're seeking higher purpose in life. Beyond concentration techniques and mental exercises, Sahaja taps into an innate subtle energy inside you, granting you the state of meditation at an elevated level of consciousness of thoughtless awareness. Sahaja isn't new. Backed by credible scientific research, Sahaja has been practiced in over 90 countries for nearly 5 decades. Sahaja can provide relief for a number of problems including stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD and insomnia. At the same time, it distills the teachings of ancient saints and spiritual scriptures into a practice that helps you actualize them to improve your life and personality in a practical manner. Though Sahaja's origins are from the East, it's knowledge, philosophy and techniques are universal in nature. We have instructors and practitioners of various backgrounds and ethnicity. Sahaja is unique in its ability to offer meditation, self-improvement and spirituality completely free of charge to the public.

Meditation strategies for dealing with Addiction – Part 1

A very recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center in August this year provides a quantitative measure of the serious problem facing us from addiction:

 

  • 46% of Americans have a family member or close friend who is addicted to drugs or has been in the past;
  • Opioids account for more than 60% of drug overdose deaths;
  • Since 1999, drug overdose-related deaths have tripled in number.

 

We have dealt with addiction in a lot of detail on our website. Sahaja meditation works in multiple ways to help with addiction, primarily by:

 

  • Reducing stress and stress-induced cravings;
  • Making the practitioner more self-aware and mindful of thoughts and emotions, especially in the area of any addictions he or she might be dealing with;
  • Releasing negative thoughts and feelings through self-forgiveness that might otherwise lead to rumination;
  • Positively impacting neurotransmitters and neurohormones which regulate health and well-being;
    Increasing resilience and better coping skills by re-wiring the neural circuitry.

Changing the world over a century

This morning I logged in online to pay my electricity bill online and got a shock. Sure, it’s winter but the charges were way too high even for the seasonal change. And then I realized that I’d signed up for a green energy company as my energy supplier who had lured me in with a great introductory rate but over the last many months, had nearly doubled their rates compared with the other suppliers in my area. While I was proud of making that change to green energy when I signed up, I realized that living green isn’t just economically viable for most people.

10 ways to dumb down meditation

A while ago, I wrote about the typical meditation cliches and stereotypes. These are times when meditation is exploding in the market. Virtually anyone with a bit of knowledge of meditation wants to make a quick buck. Capitalize on the trend as they say. While there definitely are effective forms of meditation that we appreciate a lot, an exceedingly high number of meditation offerings in the market like to dumb meditation down to something very simplistic and often frivolous, either deliberately because they think the audiences cannot take something that isn’t too simple or likely because that’s all they know.

Are you too happy to meditate?

Turns out that a lot of people are. More specifically, the question almost always with a lot of people is “Why should I meditate?”. The unstated sentence after that is “I’m happy already”. The reasons for the lack of motivation to meditate range from a complete lack of awareness of what meditation can do for them to leading a life they think is entirely fulfilled. As we would put it, they aren’t seeking meditation all that strongly.

Robots will force us to meditate more

The debate rages on. Are robots and automation going to take away a majority of our jobs very soon? Will Artificial Intelligence do most of our brain work in future? Then there is the talk of education and training in newer areas and skills to meet new demands. Can people leading normal lives and earning their livelihood match the pace of change about to come upon us?

 

But what does the journey of meditation, spirituality, and self-improvement have to do with all this? Quite a lot, apparently. Here at Sahaja Online, our take is that most of these predictions are likely to come true. But not because the experts are saying that they will, but because we know that human beings must continuously evolve to higher states of maturity, skills, and pursuits in their lives. In fact, the very basis and foundation of Sahaja is that people must take to higher reaches human development progressively till they become almost god-like in their personality and character traits.

Finding Stillness in the Storm

Fall colors – probably few better places to admire the verdant Autumn transition than Syracuse in Upstate New York. However, when I headed for Syracuse University in the Fall of 2001, I wasn’t going there for the picturesque road trip. I was headed to the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications for a graduate degree in Advertising. I was one of the thousands ‘immigrating’ to the United States from India, with hopes and aspirations of living the fabled ‘American’ campus life.
