And God created the Cosmos.

Before a cosmic cycle (the Creation) starts, the ultimate reality is undifferentiated as Parabrahma; it is infinity, abstract, without manifestation. The Creation starts when this reality separates into two; Sri Sadashiva the Primordial Father, and Sri Adi Shakti, the Primordial Mother. “HE” is the Eternal Witness; “SHE” is His power, the Holy Ghost.” Shri Mataji

Sahaja Yoga Mooladhara The Mooladhara chakra is situated at the base of the spine within the pelvic plexus. Moola means ‘root’ and adhara means ‘the support.’ It is the foundation of the whole subtle system and hence very important in Sahaja Yoga. On a gross level it governs excretion and sex. On a subtle level it is responsible for the qualities of innocence, wisdom, chastity and holiness within us. Innocence is a quality that is evident in babies and young children as well as some adults and provides them with a magenetic quality. Innocence can never be destroyed. It is an eternal quality, but it can be covered by the clouds of incorrect actions.

Through Sahaja Yoga cleansing pratices we can purify this centre and bring it back into a balanced state. This centre is strongly associated with the earth element, and hence sitting on the Mother Earth is very helpful. It is also good to place the feet in a bowl of warm water containing salt, also known as footsoaking. It helps to keep the attention on nature, especially the earth, the sky and grass, as these sooth and cleanse the attention.

Now this first centre is very important because this was the first centre that was created when the Primordial Being started doing the job. This is the centre of innocence that is holiness. First thing that was created was holiness on this earth. This centre is very important in all the human beings because animals have innocence. They have not lost it, while we have a right or we can say we have a freedom to abandon it. We can do it, we can somehow or other destroy it by our so-called ideas of freedom.

Now this centre has a power to give us wisdom. Now wisdom is such a, such a word that cannot be explained. Wisdom is the balance between your understanding of what is good and what is bad. Where you really understand what is good for you, for your spirit, is wisdom; and when this centre is alive and is not destroyed then you really know what is wisdom is. For example the person who has got this centre very well developed can tell you whether it is the north or the south, because the magnetism that is in the Mother Earth, this centre is made by the element of Mother Earth. So the magnetism that is in the Mother Earth is there present in this centre. When the birds fly all the way from Siberia to Australia they do it with the help of this centre because they know whether they are moving northward or southward. They have an innate wisdom to know which way to move and that’s why one should know that this centre is also within us but we have lost our sense of judgment because we have lost that magnetism within us.

An innocent person is really like a magnet and it attracts, he attracts, the people towards himself, just like a flower attracts a bee towards itself. There are some fishes in which they have found actual magnetic a, field and in some of them they have even found a regular magnet placed in certain fishes by which they know whether they are going north, south, east or west. This centre in us can be destroyed by various ways as I told you last time. Now if you see on from the top there’s a blue line coming down. This is the power of our desire, by which we desire; is the emotional side of a human being. When a person neglects his emotional side or does not respect his emotional side then this centre gets lost. It gets very much destroyed. The emotional side in these modern times is not well understood by human beings. I’m sorry to say but it is very true that when you destroy this centre, first thing that sets in is impotency or over activity, like the rapist and all that are created because this centre is neglected.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, speaking at a Sahaja Yoga public program in Sydney, 24 March 1981

The body of scientific evidence for Sahaja Yoga has grown over the last few years:

  • Asthma research. Dr Ramesh Manocha of the Natural Therapies Unit, Royal Hospital for Women, Australia and others set up a trial to study the effects of Sahaja Yoga meditation. In technical terms, a double blind, randomised controlled trial was conducted. A large group of severe asthma suffers was selected and two groups were established – one practicing Sahaja Yoga meditation and the other a popular relaxation technique. Checks were made at the beginning of the study and then again after 16 sessions of meditation. The study concluded that there are tangible benefits associated with practicing Sahaja Yoga meditation for sufferers of asthma. See (1) below.
  • Hot flushes. Hot flushes are very common for women in menopause and are associated with flushed skin, feeling hot and sweating. A pilot study was set up with ten women enrolled for eight weeks of Sahaja Yoga meditation. Their symptoms were recorded before and after the eight weeks and the results were quite astonishing. All women experienced improvements and 90% of them established a 50% improvement while 60% experienced an improvement of 65-70%, which is typically seen in a hormone replacement therapy program! This study was also completed by Dr Ramesh Manocha – see (2) below.  See Sahaja Yoga Medical Research on hot flushes for more details.
  • ADHD. Another study conducted at the Natural Therapies Unit in conjunction with the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, UK showed that Sahaja Yoga meditation can result in significant improvements in ADHD. Twenty six children with ADHD, who were aged between four and twelve, participated in a six week program of Sahaja Yoga Meditation in addition to their usual treatment (i.e. some of them were already receiving medication for ADHD) and these were compared to a control group who received no treatment. It was discovered that children who meditated experienced a significant reduction in attention problems, impulsiveness and hyperactivity, as compared to the control group. See (3) below.

This is just a small sample of studies that have demonstrated that Sahaja Yoga can be very effective in treating diseases without requiring the use of medicines.
