The Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Sahaja Yoga World Foundation is built on the belief that we are essentially spiritual beings and that real progress can only be achieved when this awareness becomes manifest in everything we do. Since 1970 the founder of the World Foundation, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has travelled all over the world teaching people that the Truth lies within human beings and providing them with the means of experiencing this unique dimension of awareness for themselves. Today there is an ever growing body of people who have benefited from her message and are working towards new and innovative solutions to the ills of society.
After over thirty years of tirelessly travelling the globe to promote her message, in 2006 Shri Mataji decided to establish a Foundation in order to help mobilise this mass of people and to facilitate the spreading of her teachings and the practice of Sahaja Yoga, the meditation founded by her. Known as the Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Sahaja Yoga World Foundation, it serves as an outlet for the expression of a new spirituality in all aspects of life and culture.
