Spiritual Diary Introduction
Many great spiritual teachers such as Swami Sivananda or Mahatma Gandhi have extolled the importance of keeping a diary and a journal. This tool takes advantage of modern technology and the flexibility of modern web design to make it a snap not only to make your daily entries but also your statistics are always available and up to date.
Prepare a statement of daily Spiritual Diary for every month as shown on the opposite page and verify whether you are progressing or not. If you want quick spiritual attainments, you should never neglect to record everything in your diary. Swami Sivananda

What To Keep Track Of
The beauty of this spiritual diary is that it can be customized to everyone's needs. If you want to keep it simple you can just start a 'yoga postures' category. Those who meditate can of course add this as well.
Some spiritual aspirants push it way further. For example you can keep track of your wake-up time and how many hours of sleep, or of how many malas of certain mantras you keep up. Of course it does not have to be restricted to yoga practices, if you do jogging or practice some arts or anything else you can keep track of it here.
A powerful technique is to keep track of your 'wasted time'. It can be quite enlightening sometimes to see how much time goes into activities that bring us nowhere.
For a fuller explanation of what to consider tracking in your spiritual diary please see 'practice examples - what to track'.
You can of course look at Swami Sivananda's diary form example at the link above for ideas.
As Swami Sivananda used to say: 'DIN - Do it now!'. Again, remember, if you want to get started right away just follow the instructions at the top of this page.
