What is satsang?
A simple definition of satsang is devotional speech and chanting programs for the upliftment of the divine love consciousness of a devotee.
Sat (सत्) means Divine.
Sang (संग) means association.Not just coming close, but to join. And how do you join? Only with love. Love is the glue that joins two things.Suppose there were two papers, and you put them together. You press hard, but they are separate still. There’s no glue inside. Put some glue and join together—now, they are stuck together. So what is the joining factor? Love. If there is no love, you can’t join.
So love is a must. That is called Sang. So this is Satsang. Sat—Divine. Sang—loving association. सत्संग!
My experience of Satsang.
For some days ago it was the first time for me that i got the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of a Satsang ,here in Bad Meinberg. A beautiful room filld with love and happiness . I step in and I feel how my soul fills and lifts, a wonderful feeling...
Sukadev cames in and the room fills with the magic from the sound of OM. Meditation, chanting... and I feel the love growing in me, and the happiness taking over my whole soul.Just a little look at my side...i see love and I know that I have everithing i ever whished.
Om Tryambakam Yajamahe
