Q.12. How can I raise the level of my day-to-day Upasana to get the benefit of Anusthan?
Ans. It requires five hundred thousand Japs a year at the rate of 15 Malas per day. Sadhana of this type is known as an Abhiyan Sadhana . Although this number is achievable simply by 15 cycles of Mala each day, it is customary to supplement it with two 'Laghu Anusthan s' of twenty four thousand Japs each during Navratari which falls in the month of Chaitra (15th March to 15th April )and Ashwin (15th August to 15th Sept.). Even otherwise, this practice is commonly followed by all Sadhaks. Additional Sadhana during Navratris (nine auspicious days occurring twice a year) further adds to the benefits of Abhiyan Sadhana .
