Do you know what is ‘Swadhyaya’?
Do you know what is ‘Swadhyaya’? Swa – means ‘your own self’ Dhyaya – means to contemplate/focus upon. Swadhyaya means to focus upon your own self. How can one focus upon himself with his senses constantly directed outwards on external people/situations/things? One needs to learn to start looking within. That’s why I give you homework to do after every knowledge session. So that you start looking inwards.

Doing your homework is an essential part of your spiritual growth. I call it ‘self-study’. It is of no use if you learn about everything that is there in the external material world and neglect to understand your own-self.

If you have not yet started doing your ‘self-study’, its not too late. Pick up the summaries from the previous 4-5 chapters, look at the homework questions and start writing down the answers. Send those answers to gnyana.homework@gmail.com

Nobody will look at your homework, not even I. It is just for your own self-growth. So if you are sincere about ‘knowing your own-self’, start writing the answers NOW!

Sending Blessings to you for a sincere commitment and thirst for ‘self-enquiry’!

Love & Bliss,
