Sadhana is first phase..
Sadhana is the first phase, meditation the second phase, yog the third phase. Sadhana, meditation, yog and then comes upasna (worship) and then shakti chaitanya (power consciousness) - i.e. incorporation of the absolute power of God into the human body and being completely gleeful and living perfectly the worldly life as well as godly life is the consummation of human life, but creatures can avail of and feel that perfection only after they have undergone these four phases. Every creature knows sadhana, meditation, yog, and upasna by name only, but how to experience them practically? How to get into that absolute state? How to settle Him in each and every pore of the body and how to motivate life by dissolving 'the self' with God the Almighty? A creature usually does not have the clue to it and therefore a Sadguru, a guide is needed in every birth and every yoni . Somewhere, devotion is so strong. It is accompanied by prayer, divinity and sacredness and there God Himself settles in the devotee's heart and makes the creature knowledgeable with his presence and divinity. But, this form of God is very- very simple but rare and, therefore, God visits this earth in some incarnation or the other and attracts a human being towards Him by manifold manifestations. Similarly, His Holiness Shri Gurudev has established the Brahmanand Ashram, and having attained God and having Him established within his 'inner self' makes devotees' life overflow with divine pleasure and grace. At our institution all creatures are provided with the clue to wholly incorporate oneself into 'the inner self' and sadhaks certainly get perfection, but all these processes are for spiritual power and so they require devotion, application, dedication and faith.
Sarva Bhootantaratma literally means I exist in all living beings. Sarva, meaning I, ‘Bhoot’ is the symbol of life. ‘Antaratma’ (inner soul) is equidistant from both. soul is but a part of “I, the super soul’ . To understand ‘I’, to know ‘I’, to attain ‘I the ultimate soul’ fully initiation to Sarva Bhootantaratma sadhana is essential.
Those who seek realization shall wear white clothing, offer garland of white flowers to ‘I-Bramha’, try to establish the inner ‘I’ in on a platform made of rice; fold your hands in prayer and pray for a feel of me in yourself from head to toe; in other words try to see the supreme soul in your self. Make the heart as the cener, fold your hands and utter the following incantation:
|| Om Namo Narayanaya Mama Hridayam Darshayami Namah||
perform incantations for a while; have faith in the realization being delivered. While praying, the devotee shall think only of self, rely on practice, come nearer to the absolute truth. By this procedure the performer could envisage the ‘I-Brama’ state completely. This is a six month course. Practice this at Bramha muhurt (auspicious hour). The performance shall be complete before sunrise.
Svayambhu realization is a fantastic reaslization which even the gods and goddesses crave to achieve. This is one realization through which a person can throw light on the latent secrets within himself through which he can attain an exceptional personality. Sva is self and relating self to existence is svayambhu. The entire universe is consolidated in your small self or Pind. If you wish to know your Self or wihs to qualify your Pind to the exalted levels of Bramhand Nayak, this Svyambhu realization will help you attain that goal.

At midnight sit in the open and chant Aum in a pacific tone. Continue for a minimum of half an hour while searching your soul for the meaning of life.
Practice this for the realization of journey into your inner self. Once the inner self is roused, I, the leader of the Universe, will rectify the outer self platitudinally.
Kamal, Uttering Aum is tantamount to writing a thousand incantations. There is not incantation superiror to this for a Sadhaka (realization seeker). The entire universe is enfolded in this single utterabce. The resonance of Aum is felt both internally and externally. This is one sound that makes the world complete.
You are aware that I am the meaning of all and wherever ‘I’ exist everything is special and through the medium of sound you beings are desirous of knowing the specialities of Durga... Durga is the symbol of divinity, excellence, unambiguity.... My incarnation in this form is a combination of Shiv and Shakti... I project the abilities of friendship and destruction in all beings... He who accepts Durga, or myself in the true form, and worships me, will be able to realize the Self very quickly. This is because concentrating on durga who is a combination of Shiv and Shakti empowers him to that extent.
I am in all forms but each form will be special in its own way because it is essential for beings to enmesh themselves with forms of uniqueness. Son, helping the poor and the distressed and executing the sinners is Durga’s speciality. This body is the seat of ascetism which is the center of power. The central I, the forces emanating through its ambits formed by the cental I which have a unique name and the central I manifest themselves in the form and shape in which the being prays and calls the central I.
In this form, any offerings of incense-candles made by the devotee are dear to me; remember, to attain the supreme I through ascetims, the inner spiriti must be strong and vital.
Dear Kamal, you know everything; self is vital to attain ascetism; in slef do all things dwell; yet I wish to reiterate what I have said quite often. Kamal... Spread a red cloth on a wooden stool and place the idol of Durga on it; the picture that you have formed is the representation of power of the main deities; for, all are enveloped in ‘me’ and ‘from me’; the power is that which is instilled in every human being through me... Look Kamal, when anyone attempts gaining realization with a pure heart, ie.when he tries to gain ‘Me’, my concentration on him will be intensified and as he comes nearer to me I tend towards him. This is the most secret aspect of all... efforts and prayers are the basics. Rest are realizations; but this realization must extend till it reaches the supreme ‘I’. Hence this explaination...
Spread a red cloth on a wooden stool and place the idol of Durga on it; prepare segments in rice and sesame. thee should be nine segments in all... sprinkle vermillion and turmeric on rice, offer red flowers, offer candescent light too to the goddess... and looking at the picture of the diety utter the following:
|| OM Mahadurga aagachcha mama deha sthaapayaami OM||
repeat this incantation nine times per day in the morning and evening while picturing the figure of Durga in your mind. Kamal, you wish to convert all into ascetics. But you are also aware that this cannot be accomplished by one and all....
Chandraghanta possesses the most peaceful and cool temper of all the gods but is as rediant as the Sun in all its glory. The speciality of Chnadraghanta is that it completely destroys the demonic proclivities in a person and makes him a better person... He who is an accomplisher of the self within, and who has failed in life both domestically and otherwise in spite of his best efforts stands to benefit a lot from this Sadhana as this will instill good power in him.. Chandraghanta especially pacifies the heart and helps in increasing the acceptance of graciousness and love...

After the sacrificial rituals, pray god to make your lige complete with folded hands.

The devotee will experience a lot of change for the good within his self. This practice is of 40 days duration. In the endserve food to nine vergins and offer them flowers and fruits. This is a very good practice to attain realization...
Sadhana means Practice
A spiritual practice is simply a practice that connects You to you
Being spiritual is not about religion at all – although it might mean you have a personal relationship to God, the Divine, the Universe, Allah, the Goddess, Shiva, Shakti… whatever word you like to use to describe something that is omniscient. …. Many people find connecting with nature is a spiritual experience, it makes them feel more in tune with life, and with themselves…. A spiritual practice is simply a practice that connects You to you. That is – your ego self, which is small, limited and separate from everything else, to your Higher Self, which is infinite, unlimited and connected to All that Is.
Absolute power of God into the human body

• Commitment – a sadhana may only be ten minutes a day, but just doing it every single day no matter what says that you care about your spiritual evolution. You are putting yourself first and you are growing.
• Discipline – the mind and ego are wily, tricky things and will use all kinds of excuses to try and keep you from doing your sadhana. Doing it every single day builds discipline as we learn not to listen to the mind and the ego, and to just DO what feels good because we know we truly want it.
• Evolution – you’re either changing and growing as a person, or you’re stagnating. Do you want life to get better, or not? Doing a daily sadhana is one small way to make sure that every single day is just a little bit better than the last one, no matter what else is going on in your life.
• Foundation – at just 10 minutes, a sadhana is like planting a tiny little seed in the garden. Every day you practice you water it and it grows… and as you get used to dedicating ten minutes a day to your evolution and growth, you’ll naturally discover you want to make more and more time for yourself. That tiny seed blossoms and grows and bears fruit and one day you turn around and discover your whole life has become a sadhana.
