a special kind of souls communication,
when knowledge flows as
an invisible stream
from one Soul, which
already known itself,
to another, which so far
still, on the road.
All ancient scriptures and all great sages emphasize the importance of Satsang – a special kind of communication through which an enlightened person, guru, verbally transmits eternal truths, laws of the universe. The mind has a tremendous creative power and is an instrument for understanding the world, self-knowledge.
However, because of the lack of spiritual knowledge, because of the inability to control one’s mind, a person turned into a “toy.” Instead of an assistant, the mind became almost the enemy of man. Satsang helps in understanding the reason behind certain thoughts, the way in which negative thinking can be transformed into positive, and assists in uncovering the power that lays dormant within us.
Satsang can be compared with the sun. It gives light, warmth, energy and many other things that cannot be described in words …A seed turns into a beautiful flower or a strong tree that gives shade and fruit under the rays of the sun. All the knowledge, the teachings of all spiritual scriptures, is kept within us all, without exception, by God, but it depends on the person to wake it up.
To wake the individual up to this truth is the reason the spiritual teacher, the sadhguru, comes into the world. The word of the Guru, which is the soul possessing the full knowledge, has a special energy and strength that can awaken the sleeping knowledge in people.
During satsang, a person is gifted with pure spiritual energy, which is able to reduce the negative and multiple positive karma. Satsang is a mystery that unravels itself and gives you answers to questions asked by your spirit.
When the truths spoken by the spiritual master resonate within you, it makes you realize that they were there within you all along. With this realization, the knowledge that you got from the books come to life, their deep essence is revealed, and they become fully accepted and understood.
The light of knowledge indicates the path by which a person can change himself for the better, learn to create harmony in himself and in the world around him. Of course, a person can live without spirituality, without knowledge … Years pass, and a person does not understand why he was born and what is the meaning of life …
Such a life can be compared to an existence with abundance of land and water, but with a lack of sun, the source of light. As without sun, the seed will never raise, so knowledge in the soul will never be revealed without the Light of spirituality…
This does not mean that a person who aspires towards spirituality, knowledge and growth will never face difficulties in life. They will meet struggles on their path, as these are the fruits of our past karma, from which no one can escape. However, if there is a light of knowledge, difficulties turn into opportunities: a person can improve his karma, and even go beyond its shackles.
Then the person understands that there really is no difficulty! There is only the ignorance of how to act in this or that situation. As soon as the Light of Knowledge has illuminated the life path, the soul experiences joy and true happiness. It, overcomes obstacles, grows and improves.
A raw gold does not sparkle or please the eye. To rid the ore of impurities, the master heats it, holding over the fire, and only then the ore turns into radiant gold. The soul becomes perfect only after passing through trials. The spiritual master guides it along the spiritual path.
