The Golden Rules of preventing lifestyle disorders include Practice of yoga, meditation and spiritual pursuits are found to enhance positive health. The practice of Sahaja Yoga makes a person calm thus facilitating ability to cope more easily and effectively with the strains and stresses of life. It not only prevents but also cures the innumerable lifestyle disorders which are the outcome of modern day living - such as high blood pressure, heart diseases, diabetes, mental disorders, etc as well as diseases associated with smoking and alcohol and drug abuse.

Sahaja Yoga is a technique to awaken the treasure of inner energy referred as Kundalini Shakti which lies in the sleeping state at the base of the spine (sacrum bone) of each human being. The process of awakening this Kundalini referred as “Self Realization” is said to be a spontaneous and joy giving process. It is believed that there are seven energy centers or chakras in every human being which are responsible for all physical, emotional, spiritual and mental well being. As the self realization rises and passes through the six energy centers in the spinal cord and pierces through the fontanel bone area on the top of the head, it nourishes and revitalizes the centers so that the person feels relaxed, calm and full of life.
