Many of you must be wondering that even after years of sadhana one doesn’t experience that calmness that yogis call satchitanand .

The reason is so simple that you will laugh at it that you did not notice it .

It will be not new for those who have practiced SHATKARMA .

After consistent sadhana the mind gets purified , no doubts about it but the brain gets affected by the actions and reactions going on in the body, so the result of sadhana is not visible .

There is a direct connection with the brain health and gut health . The brain has a direct effect on the stomach and intestines. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected.

It is said that a clean stomach is halfway to enlightenment .So eat healthy and be in a better shape to experience life in a joyful manner.

Then comes the ENT ( EAR , NOSE , THROAT) if there is even a slight congestion then also you will not experience the calm you are looking for. You must have noticed that when a slight congestion is cleared from the throat or nose or ears … the lightness you experience is tremendous .

If the lungs are  weak, again you will miss the calm .

So to experience the greatest  joy of sadhana one needs to maintain the physical health first .

A healthy heart , efficient lungs , good digestion and a sound sleep is all you need to experience SATCHITANAND in the real way . ( pehla sukh … nirogi kaya ( first joy is disease-free body ). When your body is relaxed , then you will yourself experience exponential growth in spirituality . Those of you who have medical issues , don’t lose heart , meditation and medication both will relax you .
