Replete with stories of success with Mantra Sadhana, this book is extremely inspiring for anyone wishing to progress spiritually.
As a person who attended the Gayatri Sadhana Retreat conducted by Swamiji, I was personally daunted by the "pots and pans" :) required for the Sadhana, and the range of mudras plus the mantras for each one. After attending the Retreat, I met a few people who were determined to do the Sadhana, and over time, they mastered the steps slowly but surely and then did it !
The personal stories of success of people who have tried really hard, and the stories of Kalavathi, Tarun, the Canadian gentleman - all real people who benefited immensely from Mantra Sadhana gets the spiritual momentum rolling in one who is keen to progress.
A million thanks to Swamiji is not enough, for being the guiding light in so many different ways. Meditation, Mantra Sadhana, Mindfulness, Kundalini Sadhana - name it - and He has done it, expounded it for us to follow what we like.
It's upto us to walk the path we choose ! And that is what I love about Him and all His teachings. He doesn't promise easy treats, no miracles. The walk is long, hard and arduous, but keeping at it, with His guidance, will surely get us towards bliss and liberation one day.
In Swamiji's own words from the book -
"As associating with a trained singer or a concert pianist does not make you an expert musician, simply reading my books or getting initiation from me won’t do much at all. At the end of the day, it is your own practice alone that will help you sail across. I can only do two things, both of which I do sincerely, to the best of my abilities. One, share with you all that I know. Two, pray for you. I offer this work to you."
Thank You, for Everything, from the bottom of my heart Swamiji !
