Ashram sadhana day is the day when the sadhana is to make the ashram actnic. All the elements that hinder the flow of actinic force are removed, such as old junk, unclean surroundings and poorly planned elements of the immediate environment. Broken items are also repaired. The focus is on simplicity.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
