Sadhana – meditation in Samskrta (Sanskrt) language
“Sadhana” comes from the Sam’skrta root, “Sadh” meaning “to complete”. Sadhana means the struggle through which a person becomes fully realized. Through discipline we will reach our goals.
Most human beings run around here and there seeking to realize their wishes, trying to find pleasure, forgetting they already posses the same object they seek, that treasure hidden deep in the mind, deep within their heart & soul.
Meditation is the effort to withdraw the mind from the world, concentrating it at one point and, through the repetition of a Mantra, expand it towards the Universal Mind, touching the source of all happiness and vibrating with the Essence of Being. “Mantra” means “that which frees the mind from suffering and imperfections.” It is a Sanskrt word, with great power, and its constant repetition infuses the mind with a more subtle and spiritual vibration. It is important to repeat the mantra received in the initiation in a correct way, given its significance in order to identify with the Supreme Being. Normally, due to by fears and anxieties, people use only a small part of the infinite potential of knowledge, and the energy within their minds. That infinite knowledge and power is but the Supreme Consciousness that exists in each entity of the entire Universe.
Meditation is an ancient psycho-spiritual practice that allows us to recover the connection between our individual self and the Universal Self. Such practice expands our mind allowing greater manifestation of consciousness and of our essential spiritual characteristics. While the goal of meditation is the spiritual development, it is highly verified that regular practice produces great benefits, improving overall body state and mind balance.

Guidelines for Meditation
• Don’t worry if you have trouble concentrating – it’s normal. It takes some time and practice to be able to focus on the one thought. Every time you realize your mind has wandered away from the mantra, concentrate on it again – it will get easier the more you do it. The main thing is to keep practicing, and really try to tap into the flow of the ideation.
• Don’t meditate sitting on a chair or on your bed – you are likely to get too relaxed to concentrate. Instead, sit cross-legged on the floor in a peaceful place where nobody will disturb you. Sit on a blanket or mat, and keep it only for your meditation. If you have trouble sitting cross-legged, put some cushions under you so your backside is higher off the ground. That will take some of the pressure off your legs, and help keep your back straight. Avoid resting your back against the wall.
• Refresh yourself with cool water before you start.
• Meditate twice a day – in the morning before breakfast, and in the evening before dinner. Each time is important, to get your mind and body used to it.
• Singing the mantra aloud before you meditate calms the mind and prepares it for meditation. You can sing to any tune you like, with or without instruments.
• Repeat the mantra throughout the rest of the day, singing it if you like. That will give you a continual feeling of lightness and happiness, and make it easier to meditate.
Genuine meditation practices are taught for free because:
- to meditate is the birthright of every human being – it is like breathing, it would be totally unacceptable if we had to pay to breath!
- meditation is a spiritual practice – things of the spirit are free.
- meditation is ultimately to connect us to the Supreme Consciousness – the Source from which we and everything else comes; the Supreme Being does not charge It’s children…
- by the Grace of the Supreme Being ( The Divine Presence) we were freely given a human body and a human mind, and the means – through meditation practice – to perfect both; the question of payment does not arise.
- Genuine meditation practices have been given by the Supreme Being ( The Divine Presence) for the welfare of the human family… they were given free and are to be taught for free.
