Chapter-2. The Process of Creation-17.
Vyasa wrote the Srimad Bhagavata in this manner, and Suka is the mouthpiece of this great gospel.
Vyasa taught the Bhagavata to his son Suka, which he reiterated to Parikshit on that particular occasion mentioned already.
The whole of sadhana practice, in all its varieties, is described in the Srimad Bhagavata.
The difficulty in the practice of sadhana is that it is an attempt on our part to reach God.
That is sadhana.
The way in which we have to conduct ourselves inwardly and outwardly in order to attune ourselves to the requirement of God’s presence is our sadhana.
True sadhana is really difficult because it is an adjustment of our personality to the requirements of God’s justice, and nothing can be more difficult than this prospect before us.
As I mentioned, God’s justice is incomprehensible.
It involves the varieties that He has created in the world, all of which are taken into consideration at the same time.
When God thinks, He thinks all things at the same time.
It is not like a human being thinking, with one thought after the other.
Hence, the adjustment of personality in the practice of sadhana to the requirement of God would mean an adjustment to the totality of the structure of creation and the rising of the spirit of our total personality in this adventure.
It is not merely thinking, feeling or understanding that is going on in sadhana; it is the rising up of everything that we are into a focus of direct action.
