SATSANG

 

Satsang means being in the presence of your own divinity, being in the presence of your own consciousness. In ancient sanskrit the word "sat" means truth, and the word "sang" represents the sangha, or community, so satsang is a coming together in a gathering of spiritual friendship to explore what it means to be a fulfilled human being, living the authentic openness of oneÕs true nature - with the natural freedom and contentment that is our birthright. For most of us this may include a process of unlearning, or overcoming our conditioning, as well as exploring new ways of experience.

 

Satsang, like any moment in life, is rich with opportunities to unplug from the stories of mind. Satsang allows an opportunity to view from a wider lens and understanding can come from this. More so there is an energetic transmission that is available at satsang if one is susceptible to an energetic change at that time. Having the willingness to let go of opinions and beliefs and to be generally loose within body and mind allows maximum transmission. Leave all resistance outside of satsang and without expectation sometimes something else can happen.

~ Jac O'Keeffe

 

Satsang means "gathering together to inquire into our true nature." It is an opportunity through inquiry and dialogue to discover that the love, peace, and happiness you have been seeking are available here and now. Satsang is a chance to finally rest from all seeking and struggle and to experience directly the completeness and perfection of your Being.

~ Nirmala

 

Satsang is an invitation to step away from the unconscious captivity of your own thoughts; the purpose of these satsangs is to reveal who you are.

~ Jac O'Keeffe

 

You have to discover, or unclothe, your own Buddha Self, your own Christ Consciousness, your own Shiva Being. If you wish to know how, come to satsang.

~ Mooji

 

Satsang is your true and natural Being, the song of your heart singing, the light of your consciousness shining, the peace of your spirit resting. Satsang is your flight as freedom, a trackless movement through the stillness of your heart. Satsang is what you have been seeking all throughout this lifetime and the true answer to “Who am I.” Come … open to this sacred invitation to realize and Be who you truly are. In-joy this silent grace awareness, for you are this adoring One, now and always.

~ Katie Davis

 

Satsang is a direct path without any specific technique or method. All that matters is that you have the longing and willingness to see who you really are. The very heart of Satsang is the revelation of that which is already and always eternally silent and ever present. It is the recognition that this, your own true nature, is consciousness, beingness, peace. It is the realization: I am This! The Truth is not a matter of effort or belief. It is the graceful end of seeking and needless suffering. It is Freedom here and now.

Satsang is not an invitation to get more for "me." There are many opportunities in the world for that. Satsang is about the ending of the preoccupation with "me-ness." Mysteriously, in the ending of the personal story, you experience completion and fulfillment.

~ Gangaji

 

The whole point of Satsang is to sweep your person aside so that God meets God inside the heart.

~ Mooji

 

Satsang is a tongueless teacher and headless students. So shut your head, let your Heart open, and Truth will reveal itself to you in Silence. Only pay attention to That with your open Heart.

~ Papaji

 

That's what's nice about satsang: there's no doing required. The innocence just gets uncovered by Grace. She peels us like ripe fruit.

~ Pamela Wilson

 

There comes a point in satsang when there is no other, no teacher, no student, no friend ... just one being looking at itself, one being recognizing its innermost. In this moment, everything that obscures truth simply dissolves ... and all that is left is unbounded, uncontainable, untamable love. Finally, we are home. And you see that you never had left home in the first place, you have always been here. Nowhere else to go,nothing else to find, just this.

~ Amoda Maa Jeevan

 

Whenever practicable seek Satsang.

~ Sri Anandamayi Ma

 

The psychological mind, in Satsang, is like a piece of ice placed in a bowl of warm water. A melting is taking place, spontaneously. There is no effort on the part of the ice. There is no effort on the part of the water. There is a natural merging. The personalised consciousness is bathing again in the original water — the ocean of its own Self and innumerable stale impressions are being washed away.

~ Mooji

 

So many of us spend a lifetime seeking love, happiness and power, whether this be through relationship, wealth, status, or even spirituality: but none of this gives us what we’re looking for.Satsang is an invitation to open to the possibility of the true fulfillment that is found by falling in love with life as it is. In saying yes to the maximum of your capacity in this moment, what unfolds before you offers the potential for deep intimacy and wholeness.The courage to get right up close to what is, turns you inside out to become a naked lover of life. It is a coming home to your true nature as awake love, in which there is nothing more to search for, just a radical embracement of this moment as it is.

~ Amoda Maa Jeevan

 

Problems come to satsang. We put them under our chairs. They get drunk on grace, and keel over. Then people forget them as they leave.

~ Pamela Wilson

 

We come to satsang wearing this beautiful cloak that's woven through time, and it gets heavier and heavier. Leela has woven this cloak, and then Love - the same trickster Goddess - unravels it.

~ Pamela Wilson

 

In satsang we are exposing and discarding the unreal. When the unreal is discarded, you don’t have to go and search for the real. The real alone remains. It is ever here. You realize it never left. It is always here as your own Self.

~ Mooji

 

Satsang is really life itself, meeting the unknowable in every moment, being totally available for an intimate relationship with yourself, your true self. This is truly satsang and it is a sacred space. When people come to satsang I always invite them to leave everything they think they know at the door….to forget everything they’ve ever heard before or experienced in the past…. to come as a newbie, because this is what each moment is always asking of us.

~ Joi

 

Satsang is about deep Rest. We can only be satisfied by what we are, not by what we can achieve or attain.

~ Pamela Wilson

 

The true seeker never tires of being in satsang. They enjoy being vigilant and thus shine brighter and brighter as their being continue to absorb subtler and subtler truths. They delight in this inner refining until the ego is genuinely transcended. They alone secure their ever-lasting freedom.

~ Mooji
