Meditation skills for life, especially for the young and young at heart!

International Youth Day was declared by the United Nations to remind the public of the importance of youth as a stage of life and is annually celebrated worldwide on 12th August. On International Youth Day, the youth are at the centre of our collective attention.

According to the Western European definition, the youth are boys and girls between 13 and 21. During this period of time, they go through adolescence the process of finding their own identity finish school, start a career and leave their parental homes to study, travel or work towards future goals. Due to all of the challenges of this period, the United Nations considers this annual International Youth Day relevant. More about the United Nations International Youth Day 2018.

About Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Founder
Shri Mataji was a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, recipient of the United Nations Peace Medal and was twice honoured by the United States Congress. She was internationally recognised for her contribution to humanity through a lifetime of work for peace and the wellbeing of mankind. She received awards and citations from the governments of many countries in recognition of her selfless efforts for social improvement.

"Shri Mataji's discovery brings genuine hope to humanity."
(Quote by Claes Nobel, grandnephew of Alfred Nobel, Nobel Peace Prize Foundation and Chairman of the United Earth Organization).

In 1970, after studying the field of medicine and focusing on the scientific terminology of the anatomy and human physiology, she started Sahaja Yoga meditation, which she insisted be shared with all, at no cost.

Shri Mataji's core teaching is that within us all lies a transformative potential, which can be awakened using her method. By doing so, we can bring peace and wellbeing to ourselves, our families, our social institutions, our nations and our world.

In keeping with her principles, Sahaja Yoga meditation is now offered in over one hundred countries worldwide, free of charge.
