Sahaj Smriti Yog

Sahaj Smriti Yog meditation is a means to explore unexplored dimensions of one’s existence.

Awakening to our real nature does not mean we have to acquire something new, rather we must discover within ourselves that which is timelessly pure and in harmony with the ultimate.

The meaning of the word Sahaj is being normal, being spontaneous. Many understands spirituality as an escape from life towards Divine Reality, leaving the world where it was. On the contrary, it is divinization of life, transformation into divine reality with full involvement in life.

Therefore, where is the need to renounce one’s family, worldly duties, ambitions, religion or any other human expression? It is this very universality, simplicity and naturalness which bring people from all over the world to Guruji.

Sahaj Smriti Kriya

Sahaj Smriti Kriya essentially, helps to gain control and lock your energy or life force–the way you want.

Most of the times practitioners find it difficult to sit in meditation as their mind and body will not be aligned.

The kriya helps to attain control of your energy system, to direct the energy to the parts of your body you desire it to go to and makes meditation easy.
