Description

A life without spiritual sadhana is a dreary waste. A life with spiritual sadhana is wise living-a life that will lead to Blessedness. The combination, the blending together, the harmonizing, the combining of an active inner spiritual life with an active outer secular life, fulfilling of legitimate duties and obligations-unavoidable, inevitable actions-this combining of the spiritual with the secular, the Divine with the earthly was Gurudev’s special mission.

And to that end he gave us one aspect of His teachings in the form of the 20 Important Spiritual Instructions. These instructions comprise a harmonizing of the outer and the inner, the emphasising of the inner and practicing of the teachings of the ancient sages and seers of the Upanishads, practicing of the teachings of all the saints who through the centuries have graced and blessed Bharatavarsha by their ideal life and teachings.

This practice, together with the normal life is Gurudev’s special teaching to the world, and summing up, the practical 20 Important spiritual Instructions give us the key to Blessedness even while living in the world and through the world itself.
