What is Self-Realization?

What is Self-Realization?

“Self-Realization”, as taught by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is the first step towards achieving ‘Yoga,’ the union with the all-pervading Divine energy, the union of the individual soul or microcosm to the supreme Soul or macrocosm. “The linking of the sacred residual energy (Kundalini) with the all pervading energy, that is what Self-Realization is.”

Through the meditative process of Self Realisation, an individual’s Kundalini energy is awakened, rising from the base of the spine till the top of the head, to enable the genuine and effortless process of meditation. The process of Self Realisation involves the gentle awakening of this living sacred and nurturing energy Kundalini, so that it pervades the individual’s subtle (i.e. spiritual) being. Once this event occurs, the person is no longer isolated from the universe around them – i.e. trapped inside their own head – but becomes a connected part of the greater cosmos. The benefits of this awakening are many, including a realisation of our sense of purpose, a feeling of completeness and the sort of self-knowledge which is often missing from our day to day lives.

Over time, the practice of this meditation produces profound emotional, physical and spiritual changes which give each of us the ability to maintain a remarkable degree of control over the progress of our lives in every way. Practitioners often talk of a feeling of ‘oneness with God and Nature’ as the most evident manifestation of their regular meditation
