What is the origin of Heartfulness? Is it affiliated with any religious or spiritual tradition?

Behind every religious and spiritual tradition, there is a nameless, formless Reality. In Heartfulness Meditation, we approach that Reality directly. Therefore, this system is universal in its application, transcending name and form. It can resonate with any path that leads toward the Ultimate.

The approach followed in Heartfulness evolved out of the ancient tradition of Raja Yoga. To learn more about the connection between Heartfulness and Raja Yoga, you can read the book Efficacy of Raja Yoga by Shri Ram Chandra of Shajahanpur (Babuji).

It was Babuji’s teacher, Shri Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh (Lalaji), who rediscovered the forgotten method of pranahuti or yogic Transmission, which is the most essential and vital feature of Heartfulness. In the early 1880s, while he was still a young boy, Lalaji began training others. His lineage and methods continue today, benefiting countless Heartfulness practitioners worldwide.
