A Sanskrit word, satsang literally means “association with Truth or Reality.” A satsang is a gathering of students who come together to receive spiritual instruction from a qualified teacher whose company is uplifting. Traditionally, students bring questions about spiritual life to the teacher, who responds to them for the benefit of all present. The questions that students bring are based on their thoughtful contemplation of spiritual topics and concerns. Satsang gatherings are for the elucidation of points relevant to most seekers. For example, they may focus on issues of spiritual development, the workings of spiritual practices, aspects of spiritual life, questions about spiritual topics, and other pertinent concerns. Satsang is usually followed by meditation in our Holistic Yoga.
