The Internal and External Ego


Today Gurudeva discusses the subtleties of the anava in its internal and external aspects. Gurudeva stresses that the first step of spiritual unfoldment is to harmonize these two so that they are one and the same. When this occurs one becomes a complete person, 24 hours a day, and nothing is hidden, even unto oneself. The best way to accomplish this, Gurudeva says, is through the Vasana Daha Tantra.

Sadhana is performing the same discipline over and over and over again. Just as we methodically exercise the physical body to build up its muscles, we perform spiritual disciplines over and over again to strengthen our spiritual, inner bodies.
