The word satsang is a Sanskrit (The world’s most ancient language) word where ‘Sat’ means the Absolute Truth i.e. God and ‘sang’ refers to the company of seekers or Saints. Together it means the company of the Absolute Truth. In a satsang, the whole environment is charged with Divine consciousness (Chaitanya) which helps to enhance the spiritual practice of the people attending. Satsang constitutes a group of spiritually inclined and likeminded members who strive for God-realisation.

Satsang is the next step in spiritual practice after we begin chanting God’s Name. In the current adverse times it is difficult to persevere in performing spiritual practice alone. We need the help of other seekers. In a satsang many seekers come together and there is a conducive created for experiencing the presence of God.

As one begins to attend regular satsangs one acquires many benefits. Listening to other people’s experiences during the satsang, we are motivated to perform spiritual practice. In satsang, we get answers to many of our doubts, questions and difficulties. These questions if unanswered can raise doubts which can put a brake on our efforts and in some cases can entirely derail our spiritual practice. By attending a satsang some seekers have also been pleasantly surprised when unanswered questions they have had in their mind have been answered during the course of the satsang without them actually asking the question. Due to one’s effort to attend satsang, God helps the seeker by answering questions that have been lingering in his or her mind for some time.
