What is Real Sadhana (The Spiritual Practice)


'Sadhana' is not reading books or taking holy dips in river waters or paying visits to Sacred Shrines. Suppression of worldly thoughts and desires (Vishaya Bhoga Vasana), as and when they arise, during the course of meditation, is real Sadhana. With the curbing of thoughts and desires emerges the Brahma Tejas (inner light) latent in the Sadhaka.
 

 

 
 
Kamaesha Krodhaesha rajoguna Samabhavah
----
 
 

Desirliness and Anger originate from Rajo Guna

 
 

-The Geetha 

 

Rajo Guna occupies every molecule of the body. It captures the mind of Jeeva and makes him play to its tunes. The captive Jeeva loses all his latent higher powers and deteriorates to a pitiable state.

Is there any superior yogic power to elevate him and to make him safely tread along the path of Sadhana "Yes, there is". That is incessant Sri Radha meditation. The spiritual practice or Sadhana of that person who meditates Sri Radhaji - The indomitable Madhurya Shakthi incessantly, progresses without interruption.

'Mind is the reason for Bondage and liberation'

 
 

-The Geetha 

 

During the period of Sadhana the lower mind which was responsible for his downfall, always attempts to pull the Sadhaka downwards

Sri Radhaji has been glorified by the Vedas and scriptures as 'Bhakthanugraha Kathara' i.e. She anxiously waits to confer Her grace upon the devotee. She gives him the energy to continue the meditation all the time. Her Grace protects the falling Jeeva or Sadhaka and turns his mind upwards. The Sadhana becomes intense and powerful with the upward movement of the mind. Besides she generates Madhura rasa (Divine sweetness) within the mind of Sadhaka in order to remain attached to meditation. These two qualities i.e. feeling of upwardness of mind and the Divine Sweetness developing from within are the indication of Her Grace upon the Sadhaka. Bestowed with the Grace of Raseswari Sri Radha the Sadhaka's journey towards the Goal i.e. The Nitya Ras becomes easier and easier. However the practice should continue everymoment and the unfolding impressions laid on the mind during the course of Sadhana should be subdued forth with".

Sri Radhajis Hladini Shakthi (power of Divine Ecstacy) has controlled the minds of all 'Gopis' in the Madan Mohan Mohini Leela. Further it has not only dissolved the outward (prakrithic) Kama Shakthi (Power to create sensuous desirliness) of Manmadha but aroused within him a deep yearning for Sri Krishna. Such is the intensity of Grace of Radhaji.

'Karmanam Bhogatho Nasyeth' unless one experiences one's Karma (result of actions) it will not be neutralised. Here there are two aspects 1. Removal of Karma 2. Effacement or elimination of impression of Karma (Karmavasana). These are not easy things. Maharshi "Soubhari or Rajarshi Viswamithra were not small beings. Their Tapas of thousands of years could not efface the Vishaya vasana (impression of worldly desires) In such a case what about small beings like us ? How can we transcend to higher planes. But we need not get perturbed.

The incessant Radha Dhyanyoga dissolves the 'Karma' comprehensively and leads him to higher planes of consciousness.
