Free meditation classes starting in Queens
After the success of their first Sahaja Yoga meditation program in Liverpool, Mary Downey and her husband Marcel Kuhn will start a second program in October.
The first class took place last March. "It was suppose to be in the community room of the Superstore and it was packed," said Downey. "People couldn't fit so we moved to the high school."
About 55 people attended the first class.
The next class starts Oct. 14 and continues every Tuesday from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. in the Liverpool Regional High School Library.
Sahaja Yoga Meditation is "taught now in over 90 countries all over the world," she noted.
An Indian woman named Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi founded this type of meditation.
Sahaja Yoga Meditation is not a physical yoga. People can come to the class directly from work, or wear sweats, but "we just sit in chairs," said Downey.
This form of meditation helps achieve a greater balance.
Sahaja Yoga Meditation addresses stress, worrying and other issues to find a balance in the person's life.
"There's nice health benefits as well," she noted.
A few people who had headaches have told Downey the headaches had gone away.
Downey and her husband also teach Sahaja Yoga Meditation classes in Halifax every Friday.
She will teach a "mom and me meditation... for any mom or caregiver who stays with the children at home."
It will be for children aged zero to five and will take place at the Lunenburg library.
The first class starts Oct. 15, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
"The reason why I'm getting into this mom and me meditation is because we have always included our son, who's now two and now he himself will sit and quiet down in the morning and also at night," explained Downey.
Those who want to take part in the Sahaja Yoga Meditation classes in Oct. can just show up and the classes are free.
"We had a great turnout last time and we're expecting another great turnout," she added.
Returning mediators are welcome and Downey said it will not be too repetitive.
Downey and Kuhn each have over 10 years of experience in Sahaja Yoga Meditation.
For more information about any of the classes call Mary Downey at 677- 2206.
Dear forum members
We are having a small gathering of Indian community here in Scarborough UK. I want to give a small introduction about Sahaj yoga and then will invite the interested people for realization and meditation.I will also tell them about this website of course. Kindly give your suggestions or ideas about this?
Jai shri Mataji.
Dear Preeti and all,
The future failure/success of SY will depend on the following:
i) whether you are going to teach them about the Devi and Her incarnation Shri Mataji, or just Her incarnation;
ii) whether you are going to teach them to realize the Devi (Self or Antaryamin) within themselves, or realize the photo on the altar of Her incarnation Shri Mataji;
iii) whether you are going to teach them that the Devi exists as the Divine Feminine in all religions and holy scriptures, or that the subtle system of the SYSSR exists in all;
iv) whether you are going to teach that "Muslims, Hindus, Christians and all have to evolve to a higher state" during this Blossom Time, or let them continue doubting, debating, arguing and eventually fleeing the little known SYSSR (Sahaja Yoga Subtle System Religion);
v) whether you are going to teach them to meditate without ANY external rituals as ALL religions strictly demand, or introduce them to the 1001 rituals of the SYSSR;
vi) whether you are going to tell them to keep on meditating while learning from www.adishakti.org on the unity and synthesis of all religions, prophets and holy scriptures, or the unity of all SYs and their collectives against external criticism from www.sahajayoga.org and the internet;
vii) whether you are going to teach about how the corrupted religions have been restored back to their original purity by the Devi and Her incarnation, or remain silent on how that purity is now being again corrupted by those in charge of the SY organization;
viii) whether you are going to teach about how to be truthful, dharmic and in vidya right from the start, or to be dishonest, adharmic and in avidya from the beginning;
ix) whether you are going to teach yourself to attain moksa by unconditionally following the Devi and Her incarnation Shri Mataji, or condemn yourself yet again into the whirlpool of rebirths by preaching others about the SYSSR.
x) whether you are going to teach them to be their own gurus by forming a new group based on all the above guidelines, or invite them back to the SYSSR meditation groups/collectives that 99.99 have consistently always fled for more than three decades.
The above applies to all who worship the Devi within and follow Her incarnation, Shri Mataji, without. If you cannot be honest and up front to others, it is better you not incur the penalty of rebirth. You will never ever liberate yourself and enter the Kingdom of God by deliberately misleading humanity. SSSYR SYs claim others are false gurus. Are they any better?
But for me SYs are worse because unlike them, false gurus teach out of ignorance. Unlike SYs, false gurus also teach out of a genuine desire to be truthful and conscientious towards fellow human beings.
Preeti, you must be your own guru. i have yet to complete commenting on Shri Mataji's revolutionary and unprecedented conferring of powers to Her devotees during Her 2008 Guru Puja farewell speech, blessings of empowerment that makes the entire WCASY and leaders almost extinct and impotent. Few truly understand Her advent, message and vision .. ...... unless (to borrow Deepak Chopra's words) seen through the lens of higher consciousness. That higher consciousness has never, is never being, and will never ever be achieved by following the SYSSR. As before, i am most willing to chisel that in granite ............ or polished marble if needed.
Note: Please understand that Devi can be substituted by Holy Spirit/Comforter (Christians), Ruh Allah (Muslims), Shekinah/Ruach Elohim (Jews); Prajnaparamita (Buddhists), Aykaa Mayee (Sikhs), Tao (Taoists) and Great Spirit (First Nations). It does not matter what you call the Divine Feminine. However, without question, the Divine Mother must exist in all traditions ............. and there lies the surety of unsurpassed enlightenment, assured liberation and promised eternal life! Period!
