Question: What is sahaja samadhi?

Sri Chinmoy: The highest type of spiritual Masters first go to savikalpa samadhi. Thought-waves are there, but the Masters are not affected. Then they go to nirvikalpa samadhi, beyond the Cosmic Dance. Finally they go to sahaja samadhi: immutable silence within and the Cosmic Dance without. Sahaja, this rascal has been granted by the Supreme. I am fooling around, but inside me is the immutable Silence. Sahaja is the perfect synthesis. Sahaja embodies silence-power and sound-power together. In sahaja samadhi, silence will not stand in the way of sound or vice versa. On the contrary, they have free access to one another. Sound comes inside for perfection and silence goes outside for manifestation. Sound-life immediately enters into silence-life for greater and greater realisation and silence-life comes into sound-life for greater and greater manifestation.
