What is sadhana

(spiritual practice)? Sadhana means effort. Effort for what? It is an endless effort to become one with the

supreme nucleus. It is a ceaseless effort to obtain perfection from imperfection. Now, no movement in this

universe is possible without encountering opposition. Wherever there is movement, there is opposition. The result

of struggle against this opposition is called progress. The more one desires to proceed vigorously to the goal, the

more one has to struggle against the opposition. Thus those who are adverse to struggle can never progress. They

lag behind, what to speak of progress. That's why struggle is the essence of life.

Who is to say that what "IS" is

not perfection?

I agree. When you put the "is" in

caps, then I assume it is something beyond what we normally assume is real. You could say "imperfection" is only an

illusion. But it sure puts up one heck of a fight. :-)
