A talk of Dr. Alok Pandey in Hindi at the Beach Office of Sri Aurobindo Society in Pondicherry in 2017.
Sadhana means acquiring a new station, a new poise of consciousness. This is achieved through an ascent and a reversal. It means shedding our old identity and acquiring a new one. Our old identity is made up of ego and ignorance. It does not allow a person to move on the divine path. It is the Divine, who should be the goal of all our endeavours. It is this aspiration which leads to a growth and ascension of consciousness. The speaker has explained and elaborated about the growth of consciousness in a very nice way.
