2023 - December - Anushthan -​ 

An anushthan is an intense spiritual practice that lasts a certain number of days and involves completing a specific number of mantras or austerities, usually in 1 sitting. Small targets can be achieved in one sitting with a goal. During anushthan, ideally we keep silence, eat simple sattvic meals, and remain in seclusion, close to our asan/or remote life - basically - not interacting with the world or worldly pleasures.

***I have my mentor that I follow and he/she is an accomplished religious/spiritual practioner.

My "this" spiritual path was made in 2004(based on my prior siddhi(s)) around 8th week of my 1st pregnancy which was during Navaratri days and it came to me.  #Durgasthami

Fun Facts :

Do you know Grace/Gracey is me/hetal. This name was given to me by my Indian church activity groups ( Telugu, Tamil & Malayalam ) in Irving, Texas USA. On request, even the social media account was made for all Out of USA submissions(international) to avoid confusions with personal account. When not in use for any company international activities, this account is used for admin purposes by functional staff members for outside USA events. It was string event that led to multiple submissions for couple of years together and so changing the name was then impossible.

As a matter of fact, this name had nothing to do with any names that i had short-listed to register as company and it was not a christian event or dance either :). It was infact a hindu dance series of Krishna Leela in folk genre. Here's is that account : Gracey

***The company Grace and Grooves eventually became g1(aka jeevan/life) providing several life support systems(from trainings to jobs) and education support to several artists. The company has a blog post that was released a couple years ago where this story is written! The post is also used as back link post for a published article by local newspaper.
