Discover Effortless, Enjoyable and Effective Meditation

" In Samadhi, that very deep state of meditation,
you are given energy and long-lasting bliss. It carries you higher and higher until your very presence radiates love."

Unlike guided meditation, Sahaj Samadhi does not require accessories, nor any guidance once learned. This meditation can be done anywhere: on a plane, in a waiting room, at the office – any place you can sit with your eyes closed you can experience the silence of Samadhi. 

And generally, it takes you to a much quieter and deeper place as well.

Sahaj Samadhi actually means "effortless meditation". It does not require controlling the mind like concentration meditations, nor does it require vigilant observation of thoughts and emotions like mindfulness meditation. Thus, it has been found to be easier and quicker to learn than Mindfulness or concentration which require mental effort and take a longer time to master.

How Is It Different from Mindfulness, Concentration or Guided Meditation?


Helping People Thrive

"We practice Sudarshan Kriya every day. It gives us an ever increasing awareness of how to live in the present moment."
Michael Tucker and Jill Eikenberry
Actors and stars of the T.V. series L.A. Law

"I am calmer, I have more energy and I feel that I am a better able to cope with things. This has been fantastic at work. I feel that I get more done, and that what used to seem like huge problems, are not so bad when you stop to think, and breathe."
Justine Tasker

"As an engineer, I need to be both analytical and critical. Mental clarity and stamina are also essential. Sudarshan Kriya and meditation enhance these abilities. An additional plus is a better sense of well-being."
William Hayden
NASA Senior System Analyst

Sri Sri describes how Sahaj Samadhi Meditation is a rare combination of simplicity with depth, and how meditation has been passed down by a series of teachers for thousands of years, maintaining its authenticity while becoming much more accessible.

The Sahaj Samadhi Meditation Course trains your conscious mind to experience the silent depths of its own nature.

Sahaj, in Sanskrit, means effortless. Samadhi is meditation - a natural state beyond waking, sleeping and dreaming that is an unlimited reservoir of energy, intelligence and creative power and a place of infinite peace and tranquility.

The practice of Sahaj Samadhi brings these qualities into our daily experience, resulting in increased energy, clarity, joy and deep inner peace.

"I am enjoying the calmness and the peace that comes with Sahaj Samadhi Meditation." 
- Dr Julia Lewis

"Sahaj Samadhi allows me to tap into a reservoir of energy, which leaves me rejuvenated and revitalized, like a new person."
- Brian Slusher

"I got so happy for no reason. I hadn't experienced that in a long time..
