Around the World
The tradition in India was that self transformation was a long process. Following Shri Mataji’s instructions, it was easy to meditate. When people noticed results within a few minutes, they were quite astonished. They learned they could easily (“Sahaja”) give the experience to others.
Shri Mataji traveled around the world to teach Sahaja Yoga. She personally taught hundreds of thousands of people how to meditate. She traveled to the U.S. several times and held public programs in several cities, including Houston, Los Angeles, and New York. In her presence, tens of thousands of people attained “Atma Sakshatkar” or self-realization. She last visited New Jersey in July 2005. She passed away on Wednesday, February 23, 2011.
Shri Mataji insisted that you could not pay for self-knowledge and inner peace, so Sahaja Yoga has always been taught free of charge.
In person, Shri Mataji put everyone at ease with her kindness and good humor. Even one glance from her, and you felt as if she knew everything about you. You felt with complete certainty that she fully accepted and loved you.
Shri Mataji dedicated her life to reclaiming the role of women in humanity’s spiritual evolution and to bringing peace, fulfillment and self-knowledge to every human being.
