profound but simple enough for even children to follow. Just like breathing!
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 12, 2007
Sahaja Yoga, an internationally acclaimed meditation founded by Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970, has been invited by NBC-King 5 Healthy Living Expo to teach people to meditate. Sahaja Yoga is an easy, "user friendly" meditation which is being followed in over 90 countries today. The Expo will be held at the Seattle Qwest Field, March 17 and 18.
Sahaja Yoga employs scientific and anatomical knowledge of the human body to harness a powerful energy present in each human being. This energy is called the "Kundalini". It is a compassionate, innocent and motherly energy, lying dormant at the base of one's spine. The Kundalini works by stopping unnecessary thoughts of the past and future afflicting one at all times. By bringing the seeker "in the moment", this energy soothes restless minds and corrects the emotional, mental and physical imbalances that arise as a result of today's chaotic lifestyles. Kundalini awakening (called Self Realization across ancient cultures), empowers the individual to integrate his/her strengths. One feels strong, positive and nimble to handle the challenges that the day brings. Sahaja Yoga is always taught free of cost worldwide and Shri Mataji has designed it to fit in with today's busy lifestyle. It takes about 10 minutes to awaken the Kundalini and for the seeker to reach a blissful state of meditation, while remaining completely aware and in control of his/her surroundings. The mind and heart become clear, feel light and strong to focus their energies on the task at hand.
Shri Mataji is the wife of a very senior United Nations diplomat Sir C.P. Srivastava, who received the Lal Bahadur Shastri award from the Government of India in 2005.
The world has accoladed Shri Mataji as a deeply humanitarian and spiritual personality. The United Nations has invited her for four consecutive years to speak on ways to achieve world peace, as did the Government of China. She was presented with the key to the City of Brasilia following official sponsorship of Sahaja Yoga programs in Brazil, and named "Personality of the Year" by the Italian Government in 1986, apart from many other honors bestowed upon her. Claes Nobel, (grandnewphew of Alfred Nobel, Nobel Peace Prize Foundation), and Chairman of the United Earth Organization says "Shri Mataji's discovery brings genuine hope to humanity." Her father, Prasad Salve, a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi, was a member of the Constituent Assembly of India and helped write free India's first Constitution. http://www.sahajayoga.org/ShriMataji
