Matha Gitananda Ashram
TRADITIONAL HINDU MONASTERY
“The Ascension happens in solitude, in a long and tortuous journey during which it is not possible to skip any step, no obstacles can be ignored and no test avoided. Our inner temple is not only in the centre of our soul and conscience, it is also at the pinnacle of our pains,
our desires, in that inaccessible place of our mental geography where the atmosphere is so bright and clear that everything living and growing in it seems to be animated by the same transparence, that same presence of happiness.”
Svami Yogananda Giri (From “Lettere a Svamiji” - Induismo nel mondo n.3)
The sadhana, or exercise of discipline, is the foundation of the spiritual path and those who devote themselves to the research of reality constantly follow it.
It is the most efficient way to face ourselves, examine our own life and our own actions through the bright crystal glass of observances and yoga ethics.
The real sadhana, practically, is certainly not the simply methodical repetition of the learned techniques but the constant application of the yogic principles; it is the ability to catch, in any contest and situation, the precious teachings offered by life.
Sadhana can only be learned, according to the tradition, from a Master, and an Ashram is the perfect place where to receive those teachings and put them into practice. The ways are many, allowing every individual to find those that are more suitable to one’s needs and temperament.
