Frequently Asked Questions

About Daily Sadhana

  1. What is Sadhana?

    Sadhana is the process of putting spiritual philosophy into practice by filling our mind with thoughts of devotion, surrender, and love for God.

  2. What does Daily Sadhana mean?

    “Sadhana” is a Sanskrit term that means spiritual practice, and features frequently in Vedic scriptures. This service has been named Daily Sadhana because it enables seekers to practice spirituality on a daily basis, which is essential to making spiritual progress.

  3. What are the benefits of Sadhana?

    All day long, we spend time in the worldly environment where the world pulls us in love and hatred, hankering, lamentation, tension, anxiety, and stress. We seldom realize that the worldly environment gradually takes a toll on us and impacts our well-being. Practicing Sadhana purifies the mind and keeps our mind in good health. Furthermore, by practicing spiritual Sadhana for some time in a day, we reap the benefits of a spiritual consciousness throughout the day.

  4. Is Daily Sadhana religious, or meant for practitioners of a specific religion?

    Daily Sadhana is intended to benefit spiritual seekers and religious practitioners of all backgrounds. The knowledge offered in our courses comes from the timeless and non-sectarian Vedic literature that has helped seekers around the world for millennia!

  4. Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?

    Yes. The Vedic Philosophy series is structured into three courses - Fundamentals of Vedic Philosophy, Secrets of Vedic Philosophy, and Advanced Vedic Philosophy. Successful completion of the prior course unlocks the next course in the series.

  8. Is it possible to complete the course in a short period of time (for example within a month)?

    Daily Sadhana is designed to allow users engage in Sadhana every day. A new lesson is unlocked each day upon successful completion of the previous day's lesson. The goal is to allow users to learn and fully contemplate on the teachings of the current lesson before moving on to the next lesson. Hence, not more than one new lesson can be accessed each day (provided the lesson for the previous day has been completed). However, students can always access completed lessons.

    Each lesson consists of a video lecture, meditation, lesson review, exercises, message of the day, prayer, kirtan and aratis. It is designed to be completed in about an hour. However, the actual completion time can vary depending on how quickly you wish to move through the lesson. There is no time limit and you can take as long as needed.

  13. Are lessons accessible after I complete them?

    Users can access any one previous lesson video of their choice everyday, in addition to their current lesson video of that day. Once you access a lesson video of your choice for the day, it will appear with an orange "View" button.
