The invitation of Satsang:
I recently received an email from one of the beloveds who attends the Tuesday evening Satsangs. She along with some of the other beloveds have offered these beautiful words about Satsang to be shared with you all.
“Satsang with Yantra means sitting in a gentle fire of truth. Her clear heart and true seeing means awakening is happening right here. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to sit in an intimate group, in a beautiful environment with one so truly present – Thank you thank you – Mia “
” It is such a privilege to gather, to open and deepen in presence together. Having this opportunity to share together is such a blessing, we are so graced by your presence and your ongoing commitment to continue to open & dive into the truth of your own being.” - Yantra-ji
“From the moment you walk in the door you feel carried into a sanctuary, a sacred space. Yantra’s Satsangs allow such an opening, such a stillness I can barely describe. You never know what truths these openings will reveal, but you can always be sure Yantra will guide with love. Sitting among familiar faces, who have become beautiful friends, or welcoming new ones… sitting as a group feels nourishing, comforting, connecting. Then afterwards…having the opportunity to share, or just sit in stillness, having a cup of Yantra’s delicious homemade chai. Whether it’s a guided Satsang, a DVD Satsang, chanting or a special celebration, Satsang has become an essential part of my life and I always look forward to it. So much gratitude here, thank you, Yantra.” – Jenny Exall
Papaji says ‘Come to Satsang with empty hands – leave all your baggage at the door’.
Yes! Leave everything at the door, your bag, your shoes, you day, your past, your future, your fears, your desires, your expectations, your longings, your spirituality, your concepts, your knowing, your lack, your personality, your gender, your identity.
The real opportunity, the invitation of Satsang, is to come to Satsang with empty hands – with no Agenda – to experience your self, naked to yourself, just as you are. “Satsang is the opportunity to just be, to rest in this blaze of truth… Resting in Sublime stillness, just emptiness, such surrender, deconstruction and freedom are possible.
Surrendered in the Silence and Grace of Papaji, Ramana, Arunachala, and This that is ALL…no words…so still… so silent…gratitude….rest…this is Satsang, this is the nature of the self” – Yantra-ji
What is Satsang:
‘Satsang’ translated from the Sanskrit words ‘Sat’ and ‘Sangha’ –
‘Sat’ meaning truth, existence, the ideal, pure and true essence, the nature of all existence and ‘Sangha’ meaning, association, meeting, group, company or community with a common goal, vision or purpose.
Satsang literally means coming together…in truth…communion in truth, keeping company in truth… Meeting in the presence of Truth.
Satsang with Yantra: is an exploration of the nature of self and truth – through stillness, and reflection, silence, meditation, conscious dialogue, opening, sharing, process work and chanting.
Yantra is committed to awakening presence in all beings, through her gentle nature & love of truth. She has been holding Satsang in Sydney on the Northern Beaches for the past 12 years.
” It is such a privilege to gather, to open and deepen in presence together. Soaking in this profound presence, sharing in all love, is so beautiful, healing & heart opening. Having this opportunity to share together is such a blessing, we are so graced by your presence and your ongoing commitment to continue to open & dive into the truth of your own being.”
We have the opportunity to inquire directly into truth, into freedom itself. When we really hear Papaji’s words “Satsang is not to do or undo anything” then we come together simply as we are, to tell the truth about what is already here, what is already free, this is the blessing and the opportunity of Satsang – let us meet here as this that we are – freedom itself.
In Love and endless gratitude for this that you are ~ Namaste Yantra-ji
