Sadhana-Shila

This sadhana shila is situated at the top of a hill near Deotal pond of Jabalpur. Param sant Mahatma Shri Yashpal ji (Param Pujya Bhai Sahab Ji) the founder of ABSS, spent a major time of his spiritual practices at Jabalpur. During his stay at Jabalpur, he regularly visited the hill side during the Brahma muhurta (early hours in the morning) for spiritual practice. In those days the place being surrounded by jungle, was in fact, inaccessible and inhabited by wild animals, snakes and other poisonous creatures. Param Pujya Yashpal ji used to sit in meditation for long hours at the top of the hill on a Shila (rock) and subsequently achieved self realization. So this place is known as Sadhana shila.

Sadhana Shila at Jabalpur is being developed as a model place for practising concentration and meditation and yogic sadhana. The locality is beautifully surrounded by fountains, temples and trees etc. One can have a nice view of Jabalpur city from the Sadhana shila with its full historical glory and beautiful tourist locations. It presents a splendid scenario during the sunrise and sunset resembling the beauty of Kanyakumari or Jagannath Puri.

Sadhana shila presents a picture of peace, purity and serenity which is humming with spiritual vibrations. One can experience immediate concentration of mind while sitting near the Shila. Regular spiritual and moral building programmes are being held at this place by the devotees of ABSS. The place is being developed as a historical place of the ABSS for promoting the cause of spiritual and moral upliftment of aspirants through concentration and meditation.
