H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi was born on 21 March 1923 in Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh - Central India.
When Shri Mataji was four years old the family relocated to Nagpur. Her father, Shri P. K. Salve was a lawyer and member of the National Assembly of India. Her Mother, Smt. Cornelia Bai Salve was the first woman who graduated in Mathematics.
In her childhood Shri Mataji often visited Shri Mahatma Gandhi in his Wardha Ashram along with her parents. Gandhiji was fascinated by the persona of this little girl and he called her “Nepali”. Later her family actively participated in the fight for Indian Independence and supported Shri Mahatma Gandhi’s fight against the Britishers.
Shri Mataji was studying for Medicine in Lahore at Christian College and was the leader of the students in protest marches against the British Regime. She and Her parents were put in prison and were tortured. She lost her seat in the medical college owing to her patriotic ambitions.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and Shri C.P. Srivastava were blessed with two daughters, Kalpana Srivastava and Sadhna Verma; they have four grandchildren and three grand-grandchildren.
It was only after marrying her daughters and finishing off her worldly duties did Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi began the most important phase in her life-
“The Reinstatement and Redemption of the human race”.
It was her dream to create a world free from hatred, abhor, wars and fights. She wanted to re-establish peace, joy, collectivity and universal brotherhood in the world.SHRI MATAJI NIRMALA DEVI

On the 5th of May, 1970 (we now celebrate it as the Sahastrara Day), on the seashore in Nargol in Gujarat – India, Shri Mataji opened the Sahastrara of the world during a long deep Meditation. She acquired this great experience of Cosmic Consciousness. Knowing the importance of full enlightenment Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi recognized the need to help the entire humanity to get their “instantaneous Self- realization”, and awaken the primordial Kundalini energy lying dormant inside humans, this was depicted more than thousands of years ago in the “Markandeya Purana”.
This dormant Kundalini-energy has to rise through the spine (Para-sympathetic plexus) and clear all the chakras and rise up through the fontanel bone (Sahastrara) and get connected with the divine power to attain the thoughtless awareness. This process has a healing effect on your whole inner system.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi than established SAHAJA YOGA and introduced the VISHWA NIRMALA DHARMA - the Purest Form of World Religion (which embraces all the Religions in the world). Since then Shri Mataji travelled around the world to spreading this wisdom and giving SELF-RELAIZATION to millions of seekers. Today there are over 100 countries in this world which follow this VISHWA NIRMALA DHARMA.
Apart from the spiritual importance, the healing effect is another by-product of Sahaja Yoga which is so very remarkable that it has cured thousands of people from diseases like cancer, asthma, psychosomatic diseases, migraine, diabetes, Hypertension, lever diseases, skin ailments and all other relevant diseases which were deemed to be terminal by renowned medical practioners.
