What is Sadhana?
Sadhana simply defined is the technique of disciplining yourself. It is a practice, particularly when performed during the Amrit Vela, which resets your cycles and patterns to the rhythm of your ultimate aims, your Soul and the heartbeat of the Universe… Sadhana is a conscious activity to access the unlimited potential of your life through relating to and embracing the most mysterious aspects of our deep self – encountering the Knowable Unknown and the Unknowable Unknown. It is during the Amrit Vela, the 2 1/2 hours before sunrise, that prana concentrates and cleansing on all levels is more easily accomplished. Simply being aware, vertical and leaning in the right direction at this time has profound effects as the subconscious, which is usually tucked away and suppressed through tensions in the physical body, is right there on the surface and in our conscious awareness…
“Getting up for sadhana in the morning is a totally selfish act- for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness, for personal discipline, and overall for absolute personal prosperity.” –Yogi Bhajan
Aquarian Sadhana Format:
Japji: The Song of the Soul
We recite the Japji for 30 minutes. Japji was composed by Guru Nanak Dev (1469-1539). It is the opening prayer of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh sacred writings. His simple message does not belong to any particular religion, nor any particular time in history. His timeless message experienced in ecstatic song is for all and is as vital today as it was when he first spoke the words from his deep meditative state.
Then we practice a Kriya: (Yoga Set) and Relaxation (30-60 minutes)
