Sadhana simply defined is the technique of disciplining yourself. It is a practice, particularly when performed during the Amrit Vela, which resets your cycles and patterns to the rhythm of your ultimate aims, your Soul and the heartbeat of the Universe. It is this time of each day when the "veil" of the ego (limited self) is thinnest and so we can mindfully observe all the negative habits that lead you away from health, physical stamina, wholeness and higher consciousness and neutralize the desires underlying those habits one by one. Sadhana is a conscious activity to access the unlimited potential of your life through relating to and embracing the most mysterious aspects of our deep self - encountering the Knowable UnKnown and the UnKnowable Unknown. It is during the Amrit Vela, the 2 1/2 hours before sunrise, that prana concentrates* and cleansing on all levels is more easily accomplished. Simply being aware, vertical and leaning in the right direction at this time has profound effects as the subconscious, which is usually tucked away and suppressed through tensions in the physical body, is right there on the surface and in our conscious awareness.
For the Buddhist, Hindu and for many other spiritual traditions the Amrit Vela is the acknowledged time for deep spiritual practice if you're privy to the monastic approach.
The Amrit Vela, the Nectar Time 2½ hours before dawn, when the world is transitioning and deeply still. It is a time when many souls are born or leave their bodies. From 2am - 6am is the most Satvic time, not being pulled by the Tamasic guna or the pushed by the Rajasic guna. There is no better opportunity to overcome inertia and practice stillness.
Many traditions, many experiences, many interpertations...I don't know your resource...but common practice in many traditions supports my posting-
To name call and denigrate and individual who- like you- used a great portion of his life to educate instead of medicate- and like you- was a red blooded man-on this earth plane, seems unfiortunate-
BTW I was speaking of KY in the originalposting- My the forum is finally taking off, eh?
Generally I agree with you, we are all there but name calling is not part of the process, ?? Or is it?
