Any special postures required when meditating?
Extract from an interview with Shri Mataji (founder) from her public lecture in Brisbane on 5th May, 1987.
Interviewer: ‘Do you have to sit in any special posture while you are doing this Sahaja Yoga Meditation, or can it be done at any time and in any form?’
Shri Mataji: ‘No. You see in this Sahaja Yoga you become the Spirit. Then you don’t have to meditate much, about ten minutes or so is sufficient and there’s nothing much particular restriction or anything in it. You can sit in any pose you like, there is no restriction of any kind. Because you become the Spirit. Only thing is you have to get into thoughtless awareness, that’s the first state is, which we call as Nivichara. For that state to achieve you see you have to sit down just and refuse to take any thoughts in your mind. Just say not this, not this. So suddenly because your Kundalini’s there already up there, so you become thoughtlessly aware. Once you become thoughtlessly aware you can stay like that for about five minutes or so, just that’s all. It’s not much time is needed because you are in meditation.’
