Yoga Sadhana

To me yoga sadhana or the practice of yoga constitutes the following:

  • External
    • Asana, pranayama, bandhas, diet regulation, sleep regulation, brahmacarya, ayurveda, silence, right speech, right action, right effort, right livelihood, manifesting divine will
  • Internal
    • Meditation, concentration, awareness, silence, stillness, brahmacarya, right view, right intention, complete understanding, development of the heart, surrender, manifesting divine will, liberation
  • Social
    • Ecological living, equality, holistic development, ahimsa, right education, holisitc health care, sustainable and just economics, right livelihood, social cleansing, brahmacarya, manifesting divine will

From the above list, almost everyone will fail in more than one count in every category. The idea is to keep this supreme goal in mind and relentlessly try to match up to it! God willing, one will be able to touch the goal often enough in ones life!
