Holy Satsang with Sri Dharma Mittra
Satsang is a traditional gathering in reverence to a wise teacher or
Guru, and in honor of the timeless knowledge and cosmic love that he
bestows upon the students. Included in this service is group kirtan,
or chanting, to help awaken the bhakti, or heartfelt devotion, group
offerings to the teacher, holy discourses, and scriptural readings to
bring spiritual salvation and understanding. The seeker can then begin
to clear his thoughts and lead a life toward self-perfection, divine
perception and self-realization which is the goal of Yogic teachings.
