Would you like to know the secret to transforming old, unproductive habits into higher levels of consciousness? Sri Ramakrishna says the answer is tapas, effort that transforms. Discover how the practice of tapas can renew your daily life, redirecting you in a positive manner.
Tapas has many aspects: cutting off energy from flowing the same old way, and then channeling it in a new way; and also gathering that energy, centering that energy, and redirecting that energy. Tapas is like melting down old metal pieces and then reshaping that metal into new forms for new purposes. Similarly, the yogi melts down old forms of his or her life, renews the life impulse, renews oneself, and blesses the world as a consequence.
We ask you to commit two hours a week to selfless service. This service can be anything you choose ranging from helping a family member or neighbor to volunteering at a nonprofit organization.
This commitment is solely between you and your inner self.
