On 12th November 1993, (Saint Petersburg, Russia) the Petrovskaya Academy of Art and Science conferred on Shri Mataji the Honorary Presidium Membership of the Academy. This academy also conferred a similar award on Albert Einstein. However the President of the Academy remarked that Einstein worked with dead matter whereas the work of Shri Mataji is far greater, as Her work brings peace to mankind. In the history of this institution, one of the oldest academies in the world, only 12 people have ever been granted this honor.
On 14th September 1994, the Academy held a Science Conference with Sahaja Yoga. This was a major breakthrough in the field of science. Eminent scientists accepted Sahaja Yoga as the 'Meta Science' and declared that science had not advanced to anywhere near the level of Sahaja Yoga.
In 1994, France granted official recognition to Sahaja Yoga as a religion. During Her visit to Brasilia in 1994, the Mayor received Her at the aircraft and presented Her the keys to the city. Ecoforum in Bulgaria awarded Her with a Gold Medal in August 1995 and the same year the Romanian University conferred upon Her a doctorate in Cognitive Science. In September 1995, Shri Mataji was an official guest of the Chinese government and addressed the World Women's Congress in Beijing.
The National Institutes of Health in Washington D.C. hosted on June 19th, 2000 a conference on Sahaja Yoga and Health which was attended by 550 medical professionals. Shri Mataji spoke to a rapt audience about the 'Secret of Medicine'. She said that modern medicine addresses only the left and right sympathetic nervous system that correspond to the left and right channels of energy, while Sahaja Yoga opens the way for 'Meta-Medicine' which for the first time is concerned with the parasympathetic nervous system (the central energy channel, through which the Kundalini energy is activated). This is an actualization that has been proved in Sahaja Yoga.
