What is Sadhana?

Following is a quote from Swami Niranjan of Bihar school of yoga.

Sadhana indicates the drive and the effort to follow the aspirations defined by yoga. Sadhana means sustained effort over a period of time for a long duration to achieve the aims set out by yoga. There has to be regularity and continuity in that effort, plus belief or conviction. This is stated in the Yoga Sutras (1:14): Sa tu dirgha kala nairantarya satkara sevito dridha bhumih – “It (sadhana) becomes firmly grounded by being continued for a long time with reverence, without interruption.”

develop the discipline of daily practice and bring the effect of Yoga into daily life.

To experience yoga in the truest sense of the word, one has to move from practice to sadhana in order to experience the aims defined by the yogic principles. By following the aims of the yogic principles and the yogic branches and aspiring to experience them, practice becomes progressive, regulated and beneficial.
