Sahaj Marg or Heartfulness Meditation is a set of meditative practices first developed at the turn of the twentieth century and formalized into teaching through Shri Ram Chandra Mission in 1945 by Ram Chandra (1899-1983) of Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. It is a form of Raja Yoga meditation system. As part of the Sahaj Marg spiritual practice, Ram Chandra adopted a technique called pranahuti as taught by his spiritual master bearing the same name Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh in India (popularly called "Lalaji" by his followers).

Kamlesh D. Patel (born 1956) also known as Daaji ( means the elder brother) among his followers, is a spiritual leader, author and the fourth in the line of Rāja yoga masters in the Sahaj Marg system of spiritual practice. He has been the president of Shri Ram Chandra Mission since 2014.

It was a memorable day for all Heartfulness seekers, Sisters and Brothers abhyasis and us who have been involved in creating this centre with blessings of “Daaji”. In his inauguration speech at Kanha ShantiVanam, Hyderabad for World Heartfulness Centre, he says “From the teachings of the teaching Vedanta, tirthankar Mahavira, and Gautam Buddha, to the messages of Nanak and Kabir, there is a grand flor of eternal spiritual wisdom which was transmitted to the modern world by Swami Vivekananda, Manahtam Gandhi and moany other exemplars of India’s spiritual force.
