Over the past years, I have been practising a specific meditation by Sadhguru and the Isha Foundation. However, I have been inconsistent with practising his specific meditation over the years, and there have been extensive periods where I have not practised the specific meditation. The large gaps or periods between the practice have been from some days, months, and even to an entire year. Nevertheless, each time I have attempted to do the meditation, I have always left more energised, calm, present, and even ended up in better emotional states. As a result, I recently decided to dedicate 90 days to execute this meditation daily. Due to Sadhguru and his foundation often recommending finishing an entire Mandala (48 days) or 90 days if not performed twice a day.
The meditation I am referring to is called Isha Kriya and can be found on YouTube or an app in Google Play or Apple Store, which is named after Sadhguru himself. To be honest, I have noticed an insane amount of benefits from improved focus, productivity, and emotional states. However, the most impactful aspect of the Isha Kriya has been the phrase mentioned by Sadhguru and his foundation, which is ‘Do not underestimate the size of a drop. A drop is an ocean by itself’. The phrase refers to the Isha Kriya meditation because its duration is short compared to other forms of meditation, which often is around half an hour to an hour. The duration of the Isha Kriya meditation is insanely short and last around twelve to fifteen minutes.
There was a lesson in the phrase ‘Do not underestimate the size of a drop. A drop is an ocean by itself’, which was never taken seriously by me in the beginning. On the other hand, after two years, I have grasped the lesson and realised the significance behind the simple phrase. The lesson was to value simplicity and how change or influence does not require some significant act. However, often the most trivial acts can have a more significant impact on someone’s life or even the world than a massive contribution.
