Satsang – सत्संग
“Satsang” (Sanskrit) means “fellowship with truth,” but in practice it means “fellowship with other truth seekers.” Paramhansa Yogananda said that next to daily meditation, one of the most important things for a spiritual aspirant is satsang.
The principles behind satsang are very important. Whenever two or more people are together they exchange electromagnetic vibrations with each other. The stronger magnetism, be it positive or negative, usually prevails. If company is spiritual, such as in the presence of other devotees, then the aspirant will be more strongly magnetized along the spiritual path. Come enjoy uplifting spiritual company.
Without satsang we end up keeping the company of the ego and we don’t even know the difference. Once the ego gets hold of us, it puts a veil over our heads. The longer we stay in ego consciousness, the harder is is to change our consciousness.
Come enjoy spiritual community. Quietly meditate in a beautiful spiritual space, or share uplifting spiritual conversation with other devotees.
“Environments is stronger than will power.” -Paramhansa Yogananda
