Satsang (Weekly)

Sat means truth, and Sang means coming together. Therefore, satsang means coming together in a spirit of awareness and truth. Studying the ancient scriptures, such as the Bhagavad Gita provides knowledge which broadens ones outlook and this enhances one’s ability to honour and respect others and their religion/faith. Dr. Tripathi guides us in the prayer meeting and presents the Bhagavad Gita from the perspective of our day-to-day life.

The Bhagavad Gita is a Sanskrit poem consisiting of 700 verses divided into 18 chapters. It is considered to be one of the most important and popular religious scriptures of Hinduism.

The Mahabharata is one of the great epic poems of ancient India. It focuses on the contest between two noble families for the possession of a kingdom in northern India. One segment of this poem is called the Bhagavad Gita. It is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna on the meaning of life. It takes place in the middle of a battle field, where the battle of Mahabharta was fought. Hindus consider the Bhagavad Gita as a direct message of Lord Vishnu in the avatar of Krishna.

The Bhagavad Gita tells us how we should conduct ourselves in our day-to-day lives, keeping God at the centre of our awareness and activities, performing our duties with a sense of detachment.
