Importance of Spiritual Practice

When prana level is low – you feel upset, angry, dejected and not so good. When prana level is even lower – you feel life is not worth living. When prana level is normal – you feel yourself, like a normal human being. When prana is a little higher than normal – you feel more creative, enthusiastic, and joyful. And if it is even higher, you realize something much deeper.

Sadhana, the spiritual practice, is meant to increase this prana level in you. If your prana level is constantly high – then you don’t need to do sadhana – that is what is enlightenment; your optimum prana.

I remember an elderly gentleman, some 40 years back, asked me, “Are you tired? You must be tired!” There was an 86 years old gentleman with me, he pounced on the person, suddenly saying, “Come on! A yogi will not get tired!” That is true! Tiredness is when our senses go outward; the moment the senses start turning inward, we are tapping into the eternal source of energy.


By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.


Each one of us is a source of energy, love & peace. If we tap into our inner Self & draw strength, we can face any challenge.


Q: Vedas are said to be of non-human origin. What does that mean?

Guruji: Vedas are simply downloaded information. The Rishis went into deep meditation and what they saw and heard they started sharing. There is a beautiful story that I would like to share with you — Vedavyasa went to the creator and asked him to please give him knowledge. The creator pointed to a shining mountain and said, “That is knowledge, whatever you can grab you can take”. So what he could grab with his hands, that is what the Vedas are today.

More than one thousand saints went into deep meditation and whatever they cognized are the Vedas. Ayurveda has a similar story. There were 88,000 saints gathered in a place. They wanted to bring health to the society and so they all gathered to meditate. They needed someone to write down what they cognized and so one of the Rishis, Rishi Bharatwaja volunteered to not meditate and write down what the other saints downloaded while meditating. Today, it is a perfect science – which herb will affect what part of the body. It is a material medica of an entire species not just human beings. It is amazing. The more you go into it, the more you will find the knowledge amazing.
