Maintaining a daily sadhana is hard work. You have to get up before the sun rises, bath and dress gracefully, and sit and meditate. So why do sadhana?
“Sadhana gives you grace. Sadhana gives you fearlessness. Sadhana gives you self. Sadhana gives denomination, domination, projection, polarity combination, equilibrium, respectability, totality, internal and external self knowledge, and it gives you purity. It gives you divinity, dignity, grace. It gives you radiance. It gives you pranic Shakti, it gives you auric Shakti, it gives you metal of something which is ever shining, not seen, and you become metallically living grace. That is what Sadhana gives you. When you want to be bountiful, do Sadhana.” Yogi Bhajan, 7/30/80
“Why do I do sadhana? Simple… it makes it so much easier for me to connect to Shunia (the still center) at all times throughout the day. That time each morning is when the roots of my inner plant are fed and grow deeper and stronger. During the day, my branches grow stronger and my limbs and leaves dance in the breeze of whatever the day has to offer.
But it is my root to which I return, again and again, throughout the day and evening by breathing consciously with mantra. Without this deep connection to the root the Maya that comes with this (and every) incarnation becomes too distracting and keeps me in my limited mental space too much of the time. The contraction and focus that sadhana requires is the very thing that allows me to keep expanding fully and fearlessly throughout my life.” Guruka Singh Khalsa – CEO of SikhNet
