"Find a corner in your house, a little place. If you have a bigger
house, find little room where you should do only your practices and
nothing else; your meditation, your practice. Have the picture of
someone you believe, a guru, someone that you really believe in and
respect, that you feel like God manifests through them. Before each
practice, light incense in the house to purify the astral plane. Keep
your refrigerator free from animals, from meat, chicken, everything that
involves yourself in cruelty. Then your house will be blessed indeed.
Before every practice you should bow and ask guidance. Do your
meditation in that room. Do your exercise, surrendering all the fruits
to the Lord. If you pray to the Lord don't ask anything back; just
appreciate His power, His beauty, that's all. Don't force yourself to
much, do everything naturally. If you feel like not doing exercise
today, do meditation. If don't feel like meditating today, do pranayama.
Or just sing for the Lord. There are so many kinds of yoga; bhakti
yoga, jnana yoga, kundalini yoga. Do little, very little, but everyday.
That is better then spending three hours one day and then spending three
or four days without doing anything. So just do two minutes, but
everyday. Then you will really succeed."
