Sahaja Yoga emphasizes the importance of each of us becoming our own master and teacher. Sahaja Yoga meditation gives us the capacity to gauge our own progress and adjust our practices accordingly so that we can guide our own development. For this reason there is no official form of membership or subscription. Just as there is no formal organization, there is also no hierarchy of authority or power structure. There are local coordinators who administer the day to day mundane activities of Sahaja Yoga in each country.
