Practice Makes Perfect?

Sadhana means Spiritual practice, discipline. Abhyasa and Sadhana are synonymous terms. The object of Sadhana is to release life from the limitations with which it is bound.

Sadhana is a lifelong process. Every day, every hour, every minute, is an onward march. Obstacles are innumerable in this great voyage. But, so long as you hold God as thy guide, there is nothing to worry about. You are sure to reach the other shore. Mere curiosity will not help you to attain any spiritual progress. Curiosity-mongering is more abominable than mischief-mongering. Introspect. Analyze your thoughts and find out whether you have real spiritual hunger or mere curiosity-mongering. Transmute curiosity-mongering into real thirsting for salvation by constant Satsang (association with the wise), study of good religious books, prayer, Japa, and meditation.

One should practice one's sadhana according to the guru's instructions.The practice of yoga; the practice by which perfection (siddhi) is attained; spiritual self-training and exercise. Sadhana is spiritual movement consciously systematized. Sadhana is the purpose for which we have come to this place.
