Sadhana FAQ's

Have a question? Need more info, please feel free to check here.

Always please reach out to your center office bearers for more questions or information.

  • To foster love is the purpose of all spiritual endeavors. In no circumstance should love be given up or ignored.  – Jan 1, 1998
  • Sadhana does not mean adoring God in a particular place or a particular form. It means thinking of God in all that you do, wherever you may be. You may ask whether this is possible. The answer is that it is possible by dedicating every action to God. –  Oct 6, 1992
  • Let no one suffer the slightest pain as a result of your thought, word or deed. Let this be your Sadhana. It will surely help you to achieve the Goal. – May 24, 1967.
  • Majority of people get glimpses of discrimination and detachment off and on, but they soon forget the call, ignore it or cover it up with excesses or excuses. One step forward and one step back — the journey does not take them far. Even if some do take up spiritual practices, steadiness is absent. Like a ball of thread that slips out of the hand onto the floor, and comes off loose because the grasp is not firm, practices fade away. – Apr 23, 1961
  • I do not advocate any specific Sadhana. Consider all people to be the forms of Divinity. Have faith that God is in all. That pleases Me the most. Refrain from doing that which causes grief to others even if it were to give you happiness. Do unto others as you would like to be done by. “Help ever; Hurt never.” Help everybody. Do not harm or hurt anyone. Do not develop ill feelings toward anybody. Even if people were to hurt you or curse you, do not refrain from loving them. This is the main point of Swami’s teachings. That is what Swami expects of you. – Nov 24, 1998
  • The anguish of separation from the One you really adore and love is the best Sadhana. Be brisk in that Sadhana. Continue yearning, more and more ardently. – Divine Whispers, p 88
