ONGOING


SATSANG (MEDITATION AND KIRTAN)
Every Sunday evening, 7-8:30pm


Satsang means ‘“association with the wise.” Meditating together in a group creates a strong spiritual atmosphere which allows a deeper experience of meditation. In satsang, people of different levels practice together – from newcomers to experienced Yoga teachers.

Satsang is the heart of the Yoga practice. It consists of 30 minutes of silent meditation, 30 minutes of meditative chanting of mantras and kirtan and an easy-to-follow reading and/or talk on yoga philosophy or psychology. The steady, joyful practice of satsang tangibly builds the energy at the yoga center.

Our chant book reflects the inclusiveness of the Sivananda lineage, with a section of chants for each of the main deities, as well as chants in English and Hebrew. Many of the Sanskrit chants are followed by translations. There is a mysterious power in every word. Our Daily Chants (Jaya Ganesha) and a few bhajans are usually accompanied by harmonium and simple percussion. It is not your voice, but the inner feeling that matters.

We recite Swami Sivananda's Universal Prayer and conclude satsang with arati, an offering and receiving of Divine Light. We also share prasad, a sweet offering.

Beginners and members of all traditions welcome. This is a free event although donations are gratefully accepted. Please arrive at least five minutes early.

"As Satsang is the only safe boat to take you to the other shore of Bliss or Moksha [liberation], you should all try as best as is in your power, never to miss it." - Swami Sivananda
