TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 20, 2015) - Communities worldwide will mark March 21 as the World Day for Inner Peace, to commemorate and honour the 92nd anniversary of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's birth.

Shri Mataji founded the Sahaja Yoga movement in 1970. Her unique discovery of this simple meditation form has made inner peace unequivocally attainable by all those who desire it. In today's world of complex societal problems, extremism and conflict, the Sahaja Yoga movement is ever resolved to bring emotional, mental and spiritual well-being to humankind. As told by Shri Mataji, "there will never be peace in the world until we have peace within ourselves."

Traveling around the world for over thirty years, Shri Mataji bestowed the experience of Sahaja Yoga and Self-Realization en masse, always free-of-charge. Today, practitioners in over 100 countries deliver ongoing meditation classes to adults and children of all ages for free. This is based on the principle as taught by Shri Mataji that inner peace is the birthright of every human being.

To this end, Sahaja Yoga outreach activities also include meditation programs at over one hundred schools worldwide to mark the World Day for Inner Peace, as well as annual tours by youth practitioners to multiple nations and refugee camps. The spiritual awareness gained through the practice of Sahaja Yoga is the key to bringing balance back to societies; particular emphasis is placed on sensitizing young minds to this greater awareness.

Sahaja Yoga is based on the spontaneous awakening of a spiritual energy dormant within the human being, as known by ancient cultures and traditions. Distinctly felt on the central nervous system, this awakening connects the person to their spiritual dimension, which is the real source of peace, integration and morality. At the physical level, scientific studies from Australia and the UK have found Sahaja Yoga to be effective for treating ADHD, asthma, epilepsy and psychosomatic diseases.

Sahaja Yoga is a unique gift which Shri Mataji bestowed to the world. For more information on Shri Mataji's life and selfless work spreading universal peace, please visit The 45th anniversary of the beginning of Sahaja Yoga is coming up on May 5, 2015.
