Bodhinatha gave a wonderful bhashya (commentary) on Gurudeva’s teachings about consistency in sadhana taken from Living with Siva. Keep an eye on the right side bar, we are catching up rapidly with posting Bodhinatha’s recent talks.
"Sadhana is practiced...wherever a pure, serene atmosphere can be found." Achieve steadiness, control of emotions through abhyasa-regular consistent practice with devotion, yoga-the restraint of mental activities and vairaghya-dispassion. Like the growth of a kauri tree, it's a slow process; check it every few years, see the progress.
