What is Sadhana?

Sadhana is a spiritual practice. Every time you come to a kundalini yoga class you do sadhana. Sadhana is a beautiful vehicle to work on yourself in order to fulfil your purpose in life. It can be done individually or in a group to clear your consciousness so you can touch the infinite within and around you.

Developing a regular sadhana can help you take control of your life, allow you to become more radiant and transform any challenges into opportunities. It can permit you to shine your light, a light that is uniquely yours, that is capable of lighting up the world.

Yogi Bhajan on Sadhana:

When Yogi Bhajan was asked: “Why do We Get Up for Morning Sadhana?” He replied:

Because we have to face the whole day, and we cannot face the day without a constant level of energy. People love you for three things only: wisdom, commitment, and consistency.

Wisdom is the intuitive nature that allows you to give the right answer by listening within the question that is asked. For every question there is an answer in it.

Commitment is the ability for your whole self to sustain its status in projected reality of action. Then people can trust you. Otherwise, it is like building a cosy bungalow on the top of a volcano. If you act like an earthquake or volcano, who will build upon you?

Consistency is steadiness through time. Sadhana gives us sensitivity to know, to feel, and to touch. It gives us intuition to touch reality. The methods are three-fold: jappa, tappa, sanjam. Jappa is repetition. Tappa is the heat of central impulsation. Sanjam is merger through simran—meditation on a very slow, conscious breath
