Sometimes our motivation to enter sadhana is to ‘get results’ for ourselves—I’m going to be more empowered…I’m going to be more…I’m going to get more…

Although that may be a valid motivation, those who stay with the practice soon discover that this is not what sadhana is about. It is a radical surrender of all that. In that surrender, we are initiated. We become instruments of something much greater. We aren’t required to be perfect, to build ourselves up or to create a new mask or identity. On the contrary, we are asked to expose our naked vulnerability and in that, we become more permeable.
