      Do your sadhana without strain. If done with strain, it will lead to headache; you will hear some sound in your ears, etc. So, do your sadhana with ease. It is not advisable to do it intensely even at the very initial stage. Do it 'lalithama' (softly with ease). But if your sadhana is chanting Hare Rama Hare Krishna or reading Bhagavatam or chanting a Nama/Mantra it can be done incessantly; any number of times.

      If you are one who are doing Parayana of Bhagavatam and You look at the Holy Text as Bhagavan it will definitely be so (Bhagavan). Do not write in this Holy Text or handle the Holy Text disrespectfully. Handle it with care and respect. Place Bhagavatam in your puja room and even offering flowers to it will suffice. It is, indeed, 'swayam' (in itself) Bhagavan. Do pradakshina, some simple puja, prostrate before the Deity, do something?

      Try to judge your progress in your sadhana by gauging how far you have been able to win over anger, frustration, lust, jealousy and desires. You must be able to like yourself. You must be pleased with yourself. The greatest 'ishwarya' (wealth) is not holding crores of rupees but feeling pleased, happy with yourself!

      One moves from tamas to rajas to satvic nature. It is only from rajas that satvic state is attained. This is the reason that one finds many kings had attained the state of Jivan mukta. Kings possess Rajasic nature. In those days the kings were highly learned in Shastras. The Kings never rest till they attain that on which their minds have been set. Say, a King learns that the best horse is found in a particular kingdom. If he has set his mind on possessing it he will not rest until the horse has been won over. Thus, when they learn about the real purpose of life and set their minds on it they do not rest till achieving the set goal. The whole rajasic nature is turned towards this achievement. Thus you find that Prahlada, Dhruva, Viswamitra, Katvanga, Jadabharata, Janaka who attained the high state were all Kings.
