Sadhana 2017

Home » Uncategorized » Sadhana 2017

Sadhana means spiritual practice, or a dedication to an aim.  How do you connect to you? How do you practice yoga or union? Anything done regularly with devotion can be a Sadhana. (for more information click here)  You don’t have to be religious to have a sadhana, it’s about connecting with yourself. In yoga we talk a lot about union. The more we feel that sense of connection, the less we struggle with the whirling of the monkey mind, or the chitta virtti’s.  The concept is that any spiritual practice can help bring peace of mind.

“Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even into your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” Swami Sivananda

We can study and discuss spirituality, but in the end you have to put in the effort and actually take the next step, shifting from thinking to doing. Creating a sadhana can help you start doing. Think of an inspirational  person, someone you look up to. Whatever their skill, they did not become a expert over night. Everything takes practice. The more hours we work at something the better we get at it. It’s that simple. How much time do you spend woking on union? Every little bit counts. Each time you take a moment to breathe and connect with your spiritual side you are putting in effort.

“Mere philosophy will not satisfy us. We cannot reach the goal by mere words alone. Without practice, nothing can be achieved.” Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

Make a commitment to do a specific practice each day for 40 days and your perspective will shift. You may even make a habit out of it. Choosing something small and manageable is a great way to start.  We talk a lot about yoga philosophy at River Lotus Yoga. I encourage you to start putting that philosophy into practice. Start doing!

love and light, robin
