Sahaj Marg

Sahaj Marg (Hindi translation, the easy or natural path), a form of Raja Yoga, [1][2][3] is a heart-based meditation system.[4] According to practicants, the essential features of the system are the "cleaning" of impressions (called samskaras). Meditation is on the "mere supposition of divine light" in one's heart.[5]

Practice

The daily practice includes:

  • Morning meditation on supposition of divine light in the heart (1 hour);
  • Cleaning of impressions of the day (i.e., imagining the day's events evaporating out one's back and being replaced with divine light; 30 minutes);[6]
  • A prayer-meditation at bedtime;[7]


Weekly practices include:

  • A weekly meditation group;[8]
  • Cleaning meditations with a preceptor.[9]

History

The organizational body, Shri Ram Chandra Mission (SRCM), was formally registered in 1945 by Shri Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur, its founder, commonly known as "Babuji."[10] Babuji was born on April 30, 1899 in Shahjahanpur, a large town in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India and passed away in April 1983 at the age of 83[11]. As part of the Sahaj Marg spiritual practice, Babuji adopted a technique called pranahuti[12] or yogic transmission, whereby the "divine essence" was said to be transmitted directly into the practicants' hearts in order to speed up their spiritual evolution. [13]

Activities

The SRCM is a non-governmental organization registered with the United Nations.[14].
