This book is about the application of 'sadhana' in our lives. Sadhana means ‘conscious spiritual practice’, and it really has little to do with what you’re doing on the outside and everything to do with what is going on inside. For example drinking a cup of tea is a sadhana if it is done with gratitude and elegance; such as we see in the exquisite Japanese tea ceremonies. Sadhana can be applied to anything you do that is uplifting and elevates you beyond the mundane or selfish. Sadhana is always anchored in ahimsa (non-violence, or kindness), because for a practice to be spiritual – filled with spirit – it must not harm another. Sadhana means to act, to do something, to be in the world yet deeply connected to your spirit.
