Sadhana literally means ‘discipline’. In the Kundalini Yoga lineage, it is our daily yoga and meditation practice. This can be either a personal practice that you have chosen to commit to (often for 40 days, the length of time to break a habit), or Aquarian Sadhana – the specific 2 ½ hour sadhana given to us by Yogi Bhajan in 1991 to support us to cross consciously into the Age of Aquarius, and to keep up during what he termed the ‘grey period’ that would continue for some decades after the beginning of the Aquarian Age.

Typically, it is recommended that the best hours of practice are between 3:00-7:00 am or 3:00-7:00 pm, because of the specific angle of the sun to the earth during these times. The early hours of the morning are called the amrit vela – a precious time when the veil between the material world and the spiritual world is the most transparent, and when the mind is less active, which makes it easier to be in connection with your soul.

Many Kundalini yogis choose to come together for group sadhana practice, and indeed this is recommended whenever possible as the highest sadhana. There are group sadhanas happening around London and the UK, usually from 5:00-7:30 am, and often with a group breakfast served afterwards. These events are organized by volunteers, and following the principle empty handed you come, empty handed you go, it is recommended to offer a donation for participation.

SADHNA – Communicating With Your Soul

Everybody has God’s light and it must be lit by a person’s own discipline. And the glass to keep it lit and shining should be kept by the person’s own courage, strength and grit. I believe it. I believe this is the love. I believe everybody has the chance to love one’s soul and every soul has the right to shine and every shine has to bring light and brightness, beauty and bountifulness to all, generation after generation. 

You love your children? You do. They are beautiful. Isn’t that innocent soul in you also your life child ? Have you kissed the soul? Have you hugged the soul? Have you communicated with the soul in the morning at the ambrosial hours when there is absolutely no disturbance? Sadhna is nothing but where a disciplined one, the love, talks to one’s own soul. is nothing but where one cleans his own mind. Sadhna is nothing but where one prepares for the day to become kind and compassionate for everyone, including the enemies.

If you think you are poor, you are poor because you do not communicate with your soul, the source of prosperity, the source of reality. If you think you are desperate, you are desperate because you have no Sadhna. Desperation, depression, and a feeling of destitution comes only to those who have no discipline or Sadhna. Only a house which is not cleaned looks dirty and the mind which is not cleaned, stinks. sadhna is the most selfish act of every act, because it is a self-cleansing. Cleanliness is Godliness. It is good to wear good clothes, look good, be bright, beautiful. But when you want to be blissful and bountiful, you have to have a clear mind, a mind through which your soul, your spirit can shine.

When you stand, take a stand, and stand tall. Walk tall and stand by the strength of your soul. Not the strength of your intellect, intelligence and your cowardice. If you want to speak to anybody, to deal with anything, to have any relationship, just have relationship by the strength of your soul. Otherwise you will miss the goal of life.

Spread the love
