Above is the amazing photo of Niagara Falls taken during a collective meditation on Sunday, September 18, 2011 by Rahul, a dear friend that practises sahaja yoga meditation in USA. Below we’ve gathered some feedback as well few photos captured during our Collective Journey behind the Falls, with sahaja yogis from both Canada and USA (about 50 of us) that decided to have an early meditation in this sacred place. In Sahaja Yoga Meditation one can gain a new level or perception, the vibratory sense, that allows us to feel/realize/enjoy the spiritual dimension of any thing/place/person. Niagara Falls is known to emit the powerful energy of Shri Vishnumaya, the Deity that governs the Left aspect of the Throat Subtle Energy centre (Vishddhi Chakra). Enjoy the feedback and the photos from that magic collective experience.

Sunday morning saw another early start, to Niagara Falls, where we meditated behind the falls. The Canadian side of the falls is horseshoe shaped, like a bandhan , and the Native Americans called it the Thunder Goddess (Shri Vishnumaya). Much love, Alan” **the Bandhan is a protective exercise we learn in sahaja yoga meditation that creates rainbow like shields of subtle energy around the body
From Rahul Kumar (Indiana, USA): It was indeed an adventure of lifetime . I do believe that Shri Vishnumaya is in the Niagara Falls :), while browsing at some pictures I took on Sunday I kept stopping at this one, only to my amazement did I realize later when I looked deeper that there is a face hidden and it felt just profound… ” From Joann (USA): “Our time in Canada was amazing, wondrous, divine! Looking at the picture (with Niagara falls above), I see the wonder continues – see the two faces formed by Niagara Falls – one large, more feminine face closer to the foreground, and a smaller, more masculine one further away….or is my imagination in overdrive ?! “
Back to our journey behind the falls ..it was indeed very powerful when we stood up, facing Niagara Falls from so close, we did recite Mantras outloud, together, yogis from both sides of the border invoking in Sanskrit the qualities of the subtle powers gathered in this wondrous force of nature. Then, there was only the thunderous voice of Niagara Falls leading our meditation; we were imbibed with the purifying Powers that were pouring out over us from everywhere.
Jonathan from Halton sahaja yoga classes is sharing his experience below:
This trip to Niagara Falls was the most powerful clearing experience I have ever had. I will never forget the strong vibrations I experienced stepping out of the elevator when we went down inside of the tunnels behind the falls. My hands were buzzing like crazy! (see the third picture). I have never felt so clear on a subtle level, and it has lasted so long!
It was amazing to experience all of this with our Sahaj family from South and North. Truly, our borders do not separate us.
After the program at the community center, many of us felt strongly to return to the falls. There, we shared many more stories in the dusk. A wonderful collective experience! Cheers, Jonathan -Halton classes.
Back to the reason of organizing such a Weekend of Togethernerss with yogis from Canada and USA: We wanted to Realize and Share the Powers of this North-American symbol -Niagara Falls-.. and hopefully trigger a flow of vibrations and blessings over North America .. from the Thunder Goddess, Shri Vishnumaya, known as the protector of Chastity, the daughter of Shri Mahakali (the Power of the Ida Nadi-Left Energy Channel), the one that destroys the negativity in and out, the one that had announced great Incarnations in the past, the one that destroys Guilt and any hidden Ego, the one that Protects and Creates and Empowers the pure relationship among (spiritual) siblings, the one that is as well Shri Saraswati (that governs the swadhistana chakra of pure learning and knowledge) and Shri Fatima (the archetype that is governing the aspect of womanhood, generosity, the goddess that is blessing our homes and our left aspect of Nabhi chakras).. Here there is a quote-teaching from Shri Mataji:
“Vishnumaya is Gauri, the pure virgin, chastity is the power of Vishnumaya.. the power of Vishnumaya is the most powerful thing that a human being can have, is the most auspicious thing ..The essence of religious life, of Sahaja Yoga life is chastity. Without a sense of chastity you cannot have dharma ( dharma represents the innate righteousness or religion) (Shri Vishnumaya Puja UK, 1985).
