World Peace Tour
Since 1992, while based in Japan, Yogmata has visited: India, Nepal, the US, Europe and Africa. Has given sermons and blessings and supported the development of people’s consciousness. She works towards and contributes to world peace and international goodwill. In Japan, she provides various courses and retreats for attaining true happiness and enlightenment as well as guide the development of consciousness and people’s ability. Many have received the secret teaching of meditation, practice it daily, awaken the power of love and peace within, cultivate their character, practice the way to become the best being.
Since a few thousand years B.C., a Siddha Master, who attained true Samadhi state, has rarely conducted Samadhi in public, only once every few centuries, for world peace, to cleanse the earth and environment as well as to prove the truth.
Yogmata Keiko Aikawa first conducted public Samadhi in 1991; the first female in the history to do so. From then until 2007, she implemented public Samadhi 18 times in various regions of India.
The location where a Samadhi has taken place is filled with Samadhi power, cleansed, and it is said that the place becomes heaven. In public Samadhi, between tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of people pack the site and have a blessing from the saint, which heals people, brings happiness and success, and leads to enlightenment.
|Samadhi||Samadhi is also called light or enlightenment. True Samadhi is the supreme state of human consciousness; transcending body, mind and everything to become oneness with the source of creation, the supreme being – God. The 5000 years old Himalayan secret teaching conveys a practical method to attain Samadhi. True Samadhi (Supreme Samadhi) is equivalent to attaining Buddahood or moksha in Buddhism.|
|Public Samadhi||This is a Samadhi that takes place in a public setting. Usually, Samadhi is not conducted in public. However, in order to demonstrate enlightenment, and also to share the power of love, peace, and wisdom, public Samadhi is conducted. It is said that only one or two persons appear, every few centuries, that can perform public Samadhi.|
The public Samadhi, Yogmata Keiko Aikawa achieved was an underground Samadhi. To stay in a completely sealed underground pit for between 72 and 96 hours, without water, food nor sufficient oxygen.
It is the hardest ascetic practice among the various Yoga trainings and has been considered evidence of true enlightenment since ancient times. The public Samadhi can be conducted only by those with permission from the Indian government, and currently Pilot Baba and Yogmata Keiko Aikawa have that permission. (If a person, who has not attained supreme enlightenment attempts underground Samadhi, they would suffocate to death.)
|Siddha Master||Siddha Master is a Himalayan saint who has achieved supreme Samadhi.|
