What is Sadhana?
Sadhana is a personal spiritual practice that is part of Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist traditions. It is a practice that devotes 10% of the day to the pursuit of a spiritual goal and applies the mind and intelligence to a commitment to spiritual development. A kundalini yoga sadhana includes:
- Reading the Jap Ji Sahib (an ancient spiritual text)
- The practice of a kundalini yoga kriya
- 62 minutes of chanting.
There are lots of Kundalini yoga teachers living in the area so we hold this practice as a sangat. This means we come together to practice and support one another on our spiritual path during the ambrosial hours of the morning when our connection to the divine is strongest. Everyone is welcome to join in, and don’t be surprised if its a different person leading the sadhana each month as we take it in turns.
Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best.
