Today I thought I would give my definition of a term often used in meditation circles. That term is called Satsang
Satsang is the true company; being in the company of the teacher or those who meditate to move beyond the illusion of this world. The illusion is the idea that what we see with our material eyes is all there is, and there is no magic and mystery behind the world. Being in satsang helps us to move beyond such limiting thoughts and experiences. Being in satsang can include reading books, listening to talks on spiritual life, having conversations with or being in the actual presence of such people who are actively moving behind the illusion.
When we are in satsang we become more attuned to eternal life and the beauty of this world. We begin to realize that this moment is the eternal moment, and we find God in all situations and conditions. The cares and worries that arise from false company (the company of those who focus on the material for the sake of ego) seem to fade away during satsang. In the meditative life the idea is to have satsang as often as possible. This makes our meditations much deeper, and allows us to enjoy life much more.
