Svadhyaya (Self-Study) – Meditation March 2023

Happy Meditation March 9, 2023 – Svadhyaya (Self-Study)

Good Morning Yogis! Today is Svadhyaya or Self-Study Day. We started practicing this Niyama by beginning a journal as a tool for self-reflection. If this is your first Svadhyaya Day, please consider starting a paper or electronic journal today and joining us with this practice!

Bonus Daily Meditation Challenge

We are in the middle of a bonus Daily Meditation Challenge for March. For Svadhyaya Day today, my meditation for the day is a Self-Reflective Guided Meditation. You will want to take notes from this guided meditation in your journal!

Today’s Positive Practice suggestion

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to try this self-reflective guided meditation for Svadhyaya Day. This is one of the most interesting guided meditations I have tried. So, today’s practice is this self-reflective guided meditation that utilizes the very challenges we face with meditation.

PS today’s quote is from The Bhagavad Gita so we are also covering the Svadhyaya practice of studying sacred texts!

Journal Day

Also, this is a good time to make a full journal entry if you have not kept up with this new practice! I have been doing a lot of journaling lately, more frequently than just Svadhyaya Days, since I have had a lot of interesting life events to document and prioritized Svadhyaya practice for myself for 2023… I am using both daily prompt 5-year guided journal and more artsy guided journal, but am happy to have a more free-style writing day today. If you are not sure what to write about, today’s Self-Reflective Guided Meditation may give some prompts from yourself to explore. Or, you can journal on your reflections on today’s quote from The Bhagavad Gita (available in our free Daily Yogi App). The Bhagavad Gita or God’s Song is a section from the Indian Sacred Epic – The Mahabharata. It is the most widely known of these Sacred Texts, and is widely read among modern-day thinkers.
