Sahaja Sthiti

Definition - What does Sahaja Sthiti mean?

Sahaja sthiti is a stage of samadhi in some traditions of Hinduism and yoga. Samadhi is a complete state of concentration, and it is the final step in Patanjali's eightfold path of yoga. Samadhi may be further divided into stages, which vary by tradition. Sahaja sthiti is a permanent stage that is full knowledge of the Self, or one's true nature.

The term comes from the Sanskrit sahaja, meaning “innate,” “natural” or “original” and sthiti, meaning “a permanent state,” “steadiness,” or “standing firmly.”

Yogapedia explains Sahaja Sthiti

Sahaja sthiti is sometimes translated as “natural state.” It is also called simply sahaja (or sahaj) samadhi.

Sahaja Sthithi yoga is the former name of a style of yoga started by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. It is now called Isha yoga and is based in Tamil Nadu, India. This style of yoga combines traditional yoga science with a modern-day approach, offering yogis a means of self-discovery with the guidance of a yoga master. The focus is on simple postures and meditation, as well as transforming energy to attain Self-realization.
