In spite of tremendous advance that Medical Science has made over past five decades, failure in adopting a holistic approach towards treatment of diseases has brought about serious limitations. Even though great success has been achieved in open-heart surgeries and kidney transplants, we have found no cure to some common psychosomatic diseases like Migraine, Asthma, Epilepsy or Cancer – which are infact on the increase.

Many modern therapies are being practiced these days like acupuncture, biofeedback technique, hypnosis, quantum healing etc. However these methods are mostly nonspecific in nature except ‘Yoga’, which deals with both physical and psychic aspects of human being and has gained tremendous momentum to become a world philosophy. However unfortunately it has been exploited by yoga organizations for money making process and this has given a big blow to the good name of ‘Yoga’.

Jaean Varenne in his book “Yoga and Hindu Tradition” has mentioned that in the west yoga has been misunderstood as a science of physical and breathing exercises only. It is really dishonest to reduce “Yoga” to some sort of physical training. The word “Yoga” is derived from Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’ meaning to ‘Yoke’ or to unite as ‘one’. Yoga in real sense means union of primordial energy ‘Kundalini’ with the all-pervading cosmic energy.

The yoga sutra of Patanjali mentioned yoga as the most essential technique to build the body and mind for higher status of mental activity and consciousness. It is in this context that vibratory awareness developed by practice of Sahaja Yoga has been used to cure many psychosomatic diseases.

Originally described in Markandeya Purana ages ago, and rediscovered by Shri. Mataji Nirmala Devi, Sahaja-Yoga meditation teaches us to harness our own divine energy (Kundalini), which has to move up, and pass through six subtle energy centers (charkas), and comes out from the top of the head to unite with the cosmic energy.

During its course up, it clears the blockages in our energy centers and actualizes in the limbic area of brain and helps one to achieve a higher state of consciousness to develop a sixth sense, of vibratory awareness. This vibratory awareness helps us to remain in balance and free from all diseases.

To verify some of the claims of Sahaja- Yoga a systemic research study was organized in the Physiology and Medicine Department of Lady Hardinge Medical College and Associated Hospitals under guidance of H.H. Shri. Mataji Nirmala Devi, by late Prof. Dr. U.C. Rai and his team in New Delhi. The research projects studied were:

1. Physiological effects of Kundalini Awakening by Sahaja Yoga, on the human body.
2. Effects of Sahaja Yoga Practice on the patients of Psychosomatic diseases
3. The role of Sahaja- Yoga in the Management of Epilepsy.

The third research project was taken up jointly with Defense Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences, New Delhi.

The doctoral thesis on all three research projects were duly approved by Delhi University. The data collected during the research studies and many more over the last ten years on Sahaja- Yoga in India by Prof. Dr Shobha Das, Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, Dr.Manocha from Australia and Aftanas and Golocheikine from Russia are of such far-reaching relevance, that they could revolutionize our understanding of human body and causation of diseases.

Moreover research work has clearly shown its values as an adjuvant therapy for the treatment of numerous diseases including Essential Hypertension, Bronchial, Asthma, Migraine and Epilepsy and stress disorders. Many patients with incurable diseases like Refractory Heart failure, Collagen diseases, Cancers, Alzheimer’s and even some genetic and auto immune diseases have been tremendously benefited.

For the benefit of humanity H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, a renowned spiritual scientist of the world, founded & opened an International Sahaja – Yoga Research & Health Centre at C.B.D., Belapur, Navi Mumbai. Situated in the sylvan green environment, this Health Centre is unique in itself in the whole world because here no Medicines are used and by only ‘Vibratory Awareness’, developed by practice of Sahaja Yoga, many patients are getting cured of their ailments.
