"Sadhana" in Sanskrit means quest or practice. First of all I would like to thank my fellow blogger Bharathy of Spicy Chilly for having tagged me into launching on this Sadhana. You may wonder how can tagging you with "seven random facts about yourself ! " , be a Sadhana? .When I was tagged by my friend , I thought and thought and thought .....and couldn't come up with seven random facts...!!! Seven facts about yourself does not seem a simple task to me .......mainly because I would like to give a deeper meaning to the word " yourself" in the tag!.....So when I came up with a fact that I was short tempered !, something in me spoke that I was not the short temper....it was just an emotion that passes! So I did not want to attribute such passing and changing mind games that frequent me to the "ME". And thus I decided to venture on this quest or Sadhana....
I would like to climb down the ladder from where I am now .....an introspection!!!......a quest!!!....there fore I would like to stretch this tag beyond this post....as my quest has just begun. This Sadhana might not be very interesting to my readers ... but I would consider it a small inward journey which I wish to undertake!
As I close my eyes , relaxing my whole body.....drifting into the alpha beta and gamma waves .....silence speaks!!!....I pause at the number "7". Seven seems to be a very powerful number.....
the 7 scales of music ,
the 7 chakras or energy centers in our bodies
the 7 colors of the rainbow
the 7 days in a weeks
the 7 wonders of the world
the 7 seas
the 7 .....many more.......and here I should come up with 7 random facts about "myself"....
.........and here my quest begins......let me be patient with this "Sapta Sadhana!!!!!!!"

lovely post...In times of any frustration or any sadness I try out different forms of meditation and now reading your post, it feels very nice to read as your words simply touch the mind and I agree 7 is a very powerful number indeed...!
Well done,Nanditha!!That was a real fantastic meme(?) with a twist!!:)
This seems to be more appropriate when it comes from a person like you,Nanditha :)
What abt Saptha Rishis,Saptha Lokam and Saptha Kanniyarkal(Andal's 7 avathars)!!??These 3 are more into spiritual side!!!:)
Did you get introduced to Kanchana Shankar,one of my good blogger friends??A dancer(not profesional) and a foodie!!You girls have many things in common!!
Amen to Kalyan and Bharathy comments.
Amazing and very helpfull post! Sadhana is specifically "spiritual practice" of meditation. Thanks for sharing.
7 is my lovely number and I think it is spiritual number too.
Peace be with you my dear friend Nanditha!
Amazing photo you found to this amazing post.
That pic is so calming and aptly chosen to go with your post of introspection.
i agree..7 is indeed a powerful number in hindu mythology...and yes, knowing more about oneself is not as easy as it appears...not even to oneself..
Wish you and family a happy onam as well, will comment on the blog separately!!
wow.......that was wonderful
this is a beautiful post.
it is most difficult - the path of a sadhaka. may the grace of the guru always be with you in your sadhana..
Thanks a lot, Nandita, for the Onam greetings. May the festive season bring happiness and success to you and all at home.
A very thought-provoking post.

Great Post, I like the way you have approached the issue, quite innovatie.
Interesting and Innovative...
A very creative post Nanditha, I enjoyed reading it. I am partial to the number seven because it's the number of the month I was born in. I am enjoying your blog so much, will visit often.
Such a lovely post, very simple and spitirual.
Nandu, I have something for u in my post ..check out when u get time :)
Enjoy the long weekend.
Thats a different way to look at things for sure!
The word Sadhana means attainment. I think it is a way of life, with discipline. Sadhana results in building will power, faith and confidence in self. It helps one to realize the innate abilities, which otherwise is hidden.
Excellent post nandu... the post as well as the narration....
