ABOUT THIS LESSON
What is Satsang?
Satsang is listening to 'The Truth'
Satsang is to recognize consciously our true nature.
Nothing on this earth or in the heavenly realms
can overwhelm or overcome you when you know who you truly are.
Your true Self is perfect, complete and unchanging.
And this discovery is the possibility and power,
the availability and invitation of Satsang.
Welcome to Satsang.
Sat (Sanskrit) = true; see also Sacca, sacha and Satyagraha
Sangha (sanskrit) - company or association
Satsang, which means ‘association with the highest Truth’, has been taking place in one form or another for as long as people have been gathering together to inquire into their true nature. Whoever is searching for the Truth is engaged in Satsang—the root of the word may be Sanskrit, but the implication is universal.
What you truly are is timeless and formless. We may call this Truth, the Self, unchanging Awareness—it is your true home, the source of love, joy and peace. In Satsang, this recognition is made possible. You are introduced to formless awareness—to God, to Truth—which is your very own source and light. You are invited and guided to recognise that this pure consciousness itself is the source of all manifestation, and that without it, nothing exists. Through the gracious encounter, presence and guidance of a living master in Satsang, we directly experience this.
An example Satsang story from the Bhagavat Gita
In the coming Modules, we will talk more about the Bhagavat gita and the divine every day life support it offers to us humans. For now, suffice to say that it’s a book with a beautiful story, drenched with significance and meaning that can offer us guidance, support, solace, inspiration and love in the time of need. It’s a fundamental tool for the elevation of consciousness.
There are many versions and later on I will share my favorite one with you. The Bhagavat Gita for Kids was already mentioned in the initial modules for dowloading
Dialogue between God and Dead Man:
God: Alright son, it’s time to go.
Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…
God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go.?
Man: What do you have in that suitcase?
God: Your belongings.
Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money…
God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth.
Man: Is it my memories?
God: No. They belong to Time.
Man: Is it my talent?
God: No. They belong to Circumstance.
Man: Is it my friends and family?
God: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled.
Man: Is it my wife and children?
God: No. they belong to your Heart.
Man: Then it must be my body?
God: No, No… It belongs to Dust.
Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!
God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.
Man: I never owned anything?
God: That’s right. You never owned anything.
Man: Then? What was mine?
God: Your MOMENTS.
Every moment you lived was yours.
Do Good in every moment
Think Good in every moment
Thank God for every moment
Life is just a Moment.
I spent 30 years so that you don’t have to!
I am here for you!
