The Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) defines spiritual practice as honest and sincere efforts done consistently on a daily basis to develop divine qualities and achieve everlasting happiness or Bliss (Ānand).
Another way of defining spiritual practice is our personal journey of going inward beyond our five senses, mind and intellect to experience the Soul (the God) within each one of us. One of the qualities of God is perpetual Bliss and so by tapping into the Soul, we too experience Bliss.
For spiritual practice to generate rapid spiritual growth it should:
- Conform to the six basic principles of spiritual practice
- Be done in progressively higher increments qualitatively and quantitatively
