The word adhyatmic or spiritual is used often by aspirants and preceptors. What exactly is implied by adhyatmic? Is Bhajan or congregational prayer adhyatmic? Or, does it involve Japa and Dhyana? Or, does it denote religious rituals and ceremonies? Or, does it extend to pilgrimages to holy places? No, no. These are merely beneficial acts. Adhyatmic in its real sense relates to two progressive achievements or at least to sincere attempts towards those two achievements : elimination of the animal traits still clinging to man and unification with the Divine.
