Shraddha is the foundation of the yoga mansion. To grasp the essence of the scriptures, to understand the import of the Guruvakya and to rise to the vision of the Divine, there should be shraddha.

A single instruction from Sadguru is enough for a man of shraddha to awake from slumber of Maya into God consciousness.

Shraddha, in the adhyatmic sense is response from the aspirant’s total personality to Guru’s Potent Word and creative silence.

As the operative force which guides and regulates one’s conduct, acharana in accordance with the Guru’s instruction, shraddha is more a faculty than a quality.

In the mundane vyavahara or in the spiritual quest, shraddha is essential for application of talent and perfection of performance. Whatever be the field of you duty and the sphere of your swadharma, whether you are engaged in social service or in domestic chores, or in business affairs or in your office duties, do the work with shraddha. Bring your entire mind and cheer of spirit into your work. Let the work be a Yajna to the Deity.

To perform one’s duty with shraddha is called the spiritual competency in work, which is an aspect of yoga.

Harmony, order, beauty and excellence in duty are all attributed to the fundamental virtue of shraddha.

A man of shraddha attains the Highest: so says the Shruthi.”
