Category: Yogi Bhajan quotes on Sadhana

The little act of sadhana will contain your mind and make your consciousness the ruler.

–Yogi Bhajan, The Mind, Recognize Your Reality, 10/07/2004

Bring your children along to sadhana and put them in your lap to sleep. The idea is to keep them in sadhana to live in those vibrations.

–Yogi Bhajan, Beads of Truth, June 1974, 10/07/2004

A person once said about sadhana: “Once sadhana is done, nothing should happen to you.” I said, “No, when sadhana happens, everything should happen to you, and you should come out as a winner, you should come out victorious.” That is what sadhana give you. I doesn’t give you a written guarantee from God. The one who does sadhana builds himself such a powerful personality, he can conquer anything!

Sadhana is what nourishes you and shapes you into a powerful, meditative, constructive human being. It is what you need most in life, and you drop it.

–Yogi Bhajan, Beads of Truth, June 1974, 10/07/2004

If you must do sadhana by yourself, then while you are chanting, imagine a million others all around you. Hear them all chanting, with you in the middle, not moving at all. Feel that you do not chant physically, and yet are leading the chant and letting the chant lead you.

For the mind to work for you for the whole day, it must be fresh and clear; it must be made livable. That is why it is a requirement to rise early in the morning when nobody can disturb you, when you can be yourself.

–Yogi Bhajan, KRI International Teacher Training Manual Level 1, 10/07/2004

It seems that on a daily basis, when you do sadhana, nothing happens. But you don’t do it out of greed. You do it to conquer your laziness, your ego, your stupidity, with your essence of commitment. That’s all sadhana is. We don’t do it to get anything.

–Yogi Bhajan, KRI International Teacher Training Manual Level 1, 10/07/2004

What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best.

–Yogi Bhajan, KRI International Teacher Training Manual Level 1, 10/07/2004

Group consciousness in morning sadhana is to help each other. If I am trying to sleep, another is not sleeping. If, in this whole group, one person opens up to God just once, we will all be blessed in his openness.

–Yogi Bhajan, KRI International Teacher Training Manual Level 1, 10/07/2004

One part of sadhana should stay constant long enough for you to master, or at least experience, the changes evoked by a single technique. Each kriya and mantra has its individual effects, although they all elevate you toward a cosmic consciousness. Learn to value the pricelessness of one kriya, and all others will be understood in a clearer light.
