Post Practicing Simple Spiritual Routines
The founding Guru of my spiritual tradition, Sri Shyamacharan Lahiri (1828-1895), said: "Daily remembrance of God through meditation and prayer is essential to spiritual unfoldment, inner harmony and contentment" ([u]Saying of Shyamacharan Lahiri[u])

Many people feel that spiritual life is something that is only for once a week at a church or temple. Our home and our heart are two of the most important temples that we have. In the mornings before we go to work we should dedicate a moment of silent meditation and prayers. In the evening when we return from our work it is a good idea to dedicate some time once more to the practive of prayerful meditation. Just before retreating for the night's sleep, a few minutes of silent meditation is helpful for a good night.s sleep.

I have discovered that by following that simple routine solves a lot of problems in my life. It has been a special blessing. I believe that no matter what spiritual tradition we follow a similar spiritual routine can be established that will enhance the spirituality of our daily life.

OM Shantih, Shantih, Shantih, OM!
