What is Sādhanā
"Sādhana is itself an important word. It is usually translated as ‘practice’ – but the connotations of the Sanskrit term imply a different, deeper and more fully engaged attitude towards whatever it is you are practising. Sādhana is the very means to perfection; it requires commitment, openness and faith – and mindful attention to the present moment. It is the fundamental process which refines our very being."
