Doing your sadhana or spiritual practices is a NECESSITY if you want to gain higher experiences in life. Sadhana is like a SPIRITUAL HOMEWORK to get the top position in the UNIVERSITY OF LIFE. Now many might complain about the homework business still continuing even in life. YES, for you to get proficiency in what you are doing one needs to do homework and Sadhana or spiritual homework is the ULTIMATE HOMEWORK one could possible do.
There are many general sadhanas one can do and if you get a GOOD GURU he will make you do CUSTOM SADHANAS specially designed for you. I will not go too much into this and it would be better for you to start with any simple spiritual practice so that you can gradually climb the ladder of sadhana and experience the ultimate. A basic spiritual practice is to visit temples.
If a person takes birth in Bharat which is the SPIRITUAL HEADQUARTERS of this PLANET and if he does not do sadhana he is living a waste life. Here is what Osho says on Bharat:
“India is not just a geography or history. It is not just a nation,a country,a mere piece of land.It is something more:it’s a metaphor,poetry,something invisible but very tangible. It is vibrating with certain energy fields that no other country can claim. For almost ten thousand years,thousands of people have reached to the ultimate explosion of consciousness. Their vibration is still alive,their impact is in the very air; you just need a certain perceptiveness, a certain capacity to receive the invisible that surrounds this strange land. It is strange because it has renounced everything for a single search, the search for truth.”
It is the only culture in the world where the only goal in human life is to get liberation or mukti. To be free from the very process of life, from every limitation and to go beyond that. This is a GODLESS CULTURE where GOD is seen only as a stepping stone. People were free to worship anything: from cows to snakes, from trees to rock and still attain enlightenment. In other countries people believed ‘GOD CREATED THEM,’ but here in bharat we have created many varieties of GODS over time and thereby we PERFECTED the WHOLE TECHNOLOGY OF GOD-MAKING. Sadhana is in other words is ‘the technology of god-making.’ That is something isn’t it.
So, start your sadhana!
