Svadhyaya – Japa and Shastra Treat

Two years ago I experimented with something I had been deliberating on for many years. Along with twelve of my students, I rented a house in Switzerland for a week in the summer and engaged in japa meditation as described in bhakti shastra.

Atha Sadhu-sanga (Part 3)

I first visited Vrindavan during the month of Kartika. Being fond of buying books I went to Loi Bazar and happened to find the Sandarbhas printed by Guru Maharaja. From these books I got his address and immediately had the desire to visit him. I went there alone in the evening.

I began reading this small book immediately and found it quite interesting, but didn’t realize the connection between the author and ISKCON. I was so impressed by Srila Prabhupada’s writing that I would have changed my mind and gone back to the temple had I realized it.

    We like to be naked because then we are free from the dress – the conditioning. That is why everyday we want to undress completely and experience dreamless sleep. Our clothes, our house, our possessions – these are all our dresses. Sometimes it is good to meditate on deep sleep. When we are in deep sleep, we are free from the dress. And when we wake up, we should deliberate that this is just my dress, so we don’t become too much attached to it. Deep sleep is an experience of our own inner self.
