In 1970, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi founded Sahaja Yoga.

The word 'Saha' meaning 'with', 'Ja' meaning 'born' and 'Yoga' meaning 'Union' with God.

This union is achieved by awakening the 'Kundalini' (a dormant feminine energy), which resides in the Sacrum ('sacred') bone. Once this energy is awakened, it rises and pierces through the fontanel bone area and forms a connection with the power of Divine love. It enlightens the brain and the Central Nervous system and cool vibrations emanate from the head, flowing over the hands and over the crown and temples like a cool breeze.

" You are not the sum of your physical, mental, emotional life, but you are designed for the spiritual. The whole design of the human being is created to enjoy your spiritual life and not the material life. This is the basic thing human beings don’t understand and that’s why, if they knew this fundamental thing, they would seek their spirit first and they would not seek other things."
Shri Nirmala Devi, 1980

This has been described as the Holy Ghost; the Ruah; the Ruh; the Adi Shakti and the Athena in the scriptures and through this vibratory awareness Man becomes aware of what is Truth. Through this connection, physical, emotional and mental problems become a myth as one becomes an enlightened spiritual being.
