Sadhana Singh born and raised in Rome, as a second child of a Mother who worked in politics and a reformer Father who introduced “fitness” and “gym” as a new concept in Italy.
He was educated in Catholic schools and environments: “Our life will blossom and prosper in proportion to the depth and innocence with which we pray.”
In the period of his life before he started practicing Kundalini yoga he took up rock climbing. Climbing made him reflect on his motivations of his past decisions and life changes:
“I was living very impulsively, with a destructive attitude, not only toward anything I was able to build, but also toward my successes. Many of my decisions had been dictated by fear...”
Nutrition has always been of high importance in Sadhana Singh's life:
“I did a lot of sports, I studied a physical education in an establishment which is a university now. I prepared my thesis about raw foods, it was in 1985. I was always trying all kinds of food when I was still eating meat. I did everything so that I could see how the body reacts. I don't have a good digestive system. When I entered Kundalini Yoga I was surprised by the different concept they have, they do not see the food for calories but taste. How taste can stimulate something. Therefore, food can be something amazing for the psyche just by putting it in your mouth, if you think about the concept of herbs, the change already happens. Given my extensive experience with food, I was preparing diets when training sports people. I advised them on diets to reach their goals.”
In his early ages he made out his living of modelling and as an actor. He chose Stanislavski's system, a method used to train actors to draw believable emotions into their performances. Through a deep understanding of himself the actor manages to evoke the more remote frequencies of his feelings, to the point of becoming true in his fiction.
Sadhana Singh played in a film set in the ancient Egypt, performing two brothers: one who is a great warrior, strong, determined and irresistible, and the other who is a spiritual person, contained, intuitive, incapable of harming a living being, humble and devoted to meditation. They represent two extremes that himself at that time was facing as an inner conflict: between the saint and the warrior. This synergy is present in Kundalini Yoga: the Sikh tradition is that of a saint – warrior – men and women – who in their everyday lives express spiritual and temporal strength, devotion, and ability to act, their service, excellence and commitment are unwavering.
After a a six years of intense yogic practice he entered in a deep crisis at age thirty-six, feeling lack of consistency and commitment, he felt guilty and rebellius at the same time. This process gave him the urge to move and revise the orbit of his life. Shortly an accident occured and the upcoming operation were a point of inflection:
“The accident made me humbler, softer and calmer. My meditative practice was good and my motivation came back to being clear and nurturing of my prayers. Prayer forces us to truth and priorities. It is not necessary to make a request, but just to be in a state of gratitude. ”
"You refuse to give your best so that you don't risk losing or suffering, you avoid taking responsability for your victory”
Since he was a little boy he had an outstanding sensitivity “feeling the other”, with time and disciplined practice he developed the sensory capacity to relate to an object, a situation, a living being by listening to each of those items unconditionally.
“I relate, I feel, I deduce, I know- there is no need for assumptions, information and comparisons.”
He is a grateful gourmant, philosopher, poet, “the hope for the most desperate”.
During his courses he brings the abstract to earth, makes it understandable, clear and appliable.
“I love to express my love for the Teachings through the experience.”
"Eighty percent of what happens within us is unkonwn to us- it depends on the Infinite. Ten percent depends on others and ten percent depends on us.
We are free if we accept everything that happens"
“The karma we have created and the dynamics it unleashes cannot be misled; they will track us down anywhere until we pay it off, and, with grace we either understand or trascend them. Shift the focus from outside to inside. In order to adapt our lives to the needs and intentions of the soul, rather than being influenced by circumstances, we must know clearly who we are and what of ourselves we want to deliver and how.
Sadhana Singh on relationship:
"A desire to connect my reality with the other person's reality, within the intention of creating a common reality,a true ground on which to live and be with the power of two in one.
If you are in a state of grace, you are moved by a pure and fearless intent, you have nothing to gain and nothing to lose."
"You beyond you" is a very profound concept, which has to do with the essence of the human being. Yogi Bhajan once spoke about our sensitivity in relation to anything. He said that there is no way to reach, understand, find, experience what is beyond ourselves if we do not go further within ourselves. If I do not go beyond my limitation, my preconception, my subconscious, my fears, my dynamics and my karma, and I do not allow myself to be real and infinite within myself, if I do not go beyond this, I will never be able to find something beyond my comprehension , my scope, my preconception. We want people who go beyond themselves, find the infinity of space and can relate to anything, know the truth and move forward and succeed." SS 01. 2019.
"Nobility is a code of conduct that represents the soul's purity."
"Caliber is the ability to stay in reality. To access reality we need to reset our preconceptions. To percieve reality we need silence and sensitivity. To accept reality we need fleixibility.
Being humble we align to the will of God."
"Dhyana is when the object of concentration is so permeated that it is no longer perceived as external and when the other one no longer seems to be separated from you" Discipline
