Morning Sadhana

Morning sadhana is a specific practice within Kundalini Yoga.  Sadhana can refer to any spiritual discipline done at any point in the day.  In Kundalini Yoga however, it most often refers to the practice done during the 2 1/2 hours before the rising of the sun. 

If you’re seeking to know all about Kundalini Yoga, sadhana is the bottom line.  If you ask any teacher what the most important part of Kundalini Yoga is, they’ll say “sadhana”.  

Sadhana is a self disciple of the mind and body to serve the soul.  In the Aquarian Age, the motto is “I Know, Therefore I Believe.” In order to know, one has to speak from personal experience, and so all of the yogic knowledge, exercises, meditations, insights, remedies, etc. must be put into practice in sadhana.  

Why 2 1/2 hours?  This the minimum time suggested in the Kundalini Upanishads.  It operates under the principle of karma: that whatever you give comes back tenfold, so with 2 1/2 hours given to the Divine, then your entire day is covered with blessings.

Why so early? The angle of the sun to the earth during this time is also very fortuitous and our biorhythms are more favorable for cleansing.  Few people are awake during these hours, so its easier to take time out for yourself without distractions.

Doing sadhana in a group develops group consciousness.  When sadhana starts everyone has a different vibration, but as it goes on, our inner strings tune themselves to each other.  Our individual auras merge to one group aura.  If the group is well tuned to sadhana, the aura is a rainbow color, with a bluish tinge predominating.

 

"You are a Master, why do you do sadhana?’ I say, ‘To remain a Master!"
– Yogi Bhajan

Salamát (thank you), for your class! You literally took it out of me, and had me in tears! It is in these moments; the breakthroughs/surrender, that I am most grateful for. It allows me to regain that compassion and have gentleness back in my heart. Inhale and Exhale. You know what it feels like to return to Love.
