“I know WHAT to do, but I don’t know HOW to do it!”
Chariot of Sadhana (spiritual practice): Sri Swami Rama’s metaphor of a chariot with two wheels: dispassion (vairagya) and practice (abhyasa) as described in the first chapter of Patanjali’s Yoga-Sutra, the core text of Raja Yoga. Both wheels must turn together for the chariot to advance.
Chariot of Sadhana by Martin and Marian Jerry and Swami Veda Bharati: “This text, as well as Sutras of the Inner Teacher, is addressed to advanced students of the Himalayan Tradition to assist at a critical stage of the unfolding of spiritual consciousness on the path. We assume some basic knowledge of Yoga as taught in the Himalayan Tradition as well as practical familiarity with practices and methods. But every reader interested in Yoga and spirituality will find something of value in both texts.” - Introduction
