What is Sadhana and how does is look like?
Beginning with Japji Sahib
Many Kundalini yogis begin their morning sadhana with the recitation of Japji, a Sikh holy prayer. Although Japji is a standard part of what is known as the Aquarian Sadhana, and a beautiful and powerful spiritual practice, you do not have to recite Japji as a part of your morning sadhana. Sadhana is between you and you, so choose wisely what you do.
The Yoga Set
Physical exercise is an important part of sadhana. Kriya help us to get our circulation going, remove tension and release emotional blocks. It cleans the organs, stimulates the glandular system, and awakens the will. Practice a suitable Kundalini yoga kriya as taught by Yogi Bhajan. More even than physical fitness, this process of sadhana gives you spiritual fitness, and the chance to work out your mind, so for the rest of your day all you have to work out is your life. The yoga and relaxation will take about an hour.
Chanting the Aquarian Sadhana Mantras
After Japji and about 25-30 minutes of yoga (followed by relaxation), everyone comes together to chant the Aquarian Sadhana mantras.
Ending the Aquarian Sadhana
Usually one sings the Long Time Sun song and chanting Long Sat Naams.
