Sahaja Yoga Meditation can be a Lifeline

Sahaja Yoga is a great form of meditation and it is free.


I have had mental health problems in one form or another since I was 15 and at school with anorexia and then a broken heart when I was just starting at university doing the medical course. Unfortunately, I never completed my medical studies as I developed a huge guilt complex. Despite Sahaja Yoga I could not continue, I dropped out and a year or so later my re-application was turned down. So that is how I was thrown out of medical school, which hurts to this day. I am disappointed and am envious of successful doctors and wealthy people.

My first breakdown period involved feeling guilty and embarrassed about being see looking at pornographic litter. I felt vulnerable to the sound of coughing. Much later I read in novels that coughing could have a meaning, such as the “repressive cough” of the bully in The Cruel Sea by Nicholas Monsarrat. There is a “most malicious cough” in Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens and War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy features angry coughing twice.


I find that it is difficult to control my feelings about sexual behaviour, for example in flirting or at the beach. Guilt has choked me on two occasions and I had to go to hospital after an episode of violence when doctors and a social worker come to “section” me.


Voices can be troublesome. They can really be biting. Psychiatrists do not seem to be concerned.I found the line “God spoke to you by so many voices but you would not hear” by James Joyce to be a great relief.Sending unrequited letters can be hard. Here the letter scene from the opera “Eugene Onegin” helped, when Tatyana sings “Courage!I must confess all”” before she sends her rash letter to the ill-chosen Onegin.

Sahaja Yoga is free. It can relieve pressure.

In 1989 Shree Mataji was awarded a United Nations Peace medal. In 1997 Claes Nobel thanked Shree Mataji for giving hope to humanity and praised her courage in a speech at the Royal Albert Hall in London.


The way I see it now is that more people need to be told about Shree Mataji and Sahaja Yoga.This could really help save lives even and guide in calmer, more peaceful and more productive lives. The poet William Blake prophesied Sahaja Yoga and England could really be at the heart of spiritual events.
