Christian life is carrying the cross. It is bearing the sufferings patiently. It is the yoga of accepting sufferings patiently. It is the yoga of patience. The yoga of Patience is the Sahana Yoga. It is the Christian way of living.

What is Sahana Yoga?

The word “Sahana” which is derived from Sanskrit means accepting sufferings patiently. Yoga means “to unite”. It is the path of nonviolence. Shana Yoga means accepting suffering patiently uniting oneself with the love of God. It is the path of a true Christian.

Sahana Yoga is the Christian way of Life

Sahana Yoga is the practical life of the words of Jesus who explained his discipleship as “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) By bearing the sufferings patiently one can unite himself/herself with Jesus and God. It is accepting all the sufferings that we come across in life and offer them to God as Jesus did.

Every suffering becomes “yoga” when it is accepted for the love of Jesus and united with the suffering of Jesus. It is the self-sacrificing, forgiving and enduring love that unites us with Jesus. Sahana yoga is the path of Christian love that Jesus showed through his commandment of love.

Jesus Christ showed is the role model of practicing Sahana yoga

Jesus accepted every suffering as the will of God. He dedicated himself to God as to accept the death of the Cross. "To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. ‘He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.’" (1 Peter 2:21-22)

Sahana Yoga is the Sadhana (spiritual discipline) of sanctifying oneself. It is the path Christian spirituality followed by the saints. We can see this spiritual discipline in all the lives of Christians who lived a perfect life in union with Jesus. They could accept sufferings because they were one with Jesus.
