“Through meditation, consciousness becomes the mirror that reflects your innate nature,” says Daaji. “All answers ultimately will only come from the heart. Whether to listen or not to listen, to change or not to change ourselves—all these signals come from the heart. If the heart is misguided, what can you do? So when we meditate, this misguidance disappears. You face yourself as you are.”

Heartfulness: Origins and Global Presence
Heartfulness is an approach to the Raja Yoga system of meditation called Sahaj Marg, founded at the turn of the 20th century and formalized into an organization in 1945. More than seventy years later, Heartfulness has been adopted globally by groups across civil society, government departments, schools and colleges and the corporate world.
