WHAT IS SATSANG?

Satsang with Ananta

High above the noise and pollution of Bangalore traffic on Old Airport Road, Beings from all corners of the world gather on the top floor of a multi story building. Flowers are placed on the altar with photos of Ananta’s Master, Shri Mooji and also where Ananta’s feet will be . Incense is lit, water is poured, and the Sangha sit quietly waiting for Ananta, or Father as most of the Sangha lovingly call Him, to enter the room. When Ananta joins the room, the Sangha stand in reverence and respect until their Father is seated. Ananta opens His mac laptop, connects to google hangout where there are many more Sangha all around the world waiting to join in live. And Satsang begins with “Namaste everyone, a very warm welcome to satsang today, Satguru Shri Moojiji ki Jai.”



Satsang Posture

Satsang with Ananta is an invitation for sincere seekers to come to the complete realization of the Self. Satsang itself is a doorway through which seekers may experience their true, already free nature. In order to honor the sanctity of this opportunity, Ananta encourages us to come fully to Satsang as though we may have no other opportunity to dispel our delusions and discover the ever-present truth.

For this, Ananta offers self-inquiry as a means to directly experience our true and unbounded nature. Self-inquiry is just a simple and direct questioning about our true nature: What am I in reality? Participants bring their questions and doubts pertaining to freedom to Ananta, who answers the questioner rather than merely the question.Participants are greatly benefitted by coming to Satsang with a posture of openness; leaving aside concepts about awakening and enlightenment, philosophy and religion, in favor of the immediate experience of the already perfect Self.

Satsang participants are most greatly benefitted when taking the attitude that each response given by Ananta is for them directly. Ananta is always speaking to the true inquiries of the heart. When one listens both relaxed and intently, they often find that their questions are being answered from both the physical presence of the Guru and the Satguru within their own being.



The Guru-Disciple Relationship

The Master is a reflection of the Satguru inside your own self and is the one who removes the darkness of ignorance. In this way, the Guru-Disciple relationship is a beautiful communion in service to Truth alone. The sole purpose of this relationship is to remove the idea of separation to the point where there is no more Guru and no more disciple. This relationship is not personal, though it can be experienced as profoundly intimate. The Guru is the ultimate servant to all who enter his/her field of awareness.

The most beneficial posture of the disciple is one of authentic openness and earnestness, by which the light of the Guru dispels darkness. In this relationship, the Master is corresponding to your own heart connection and many feel a deep resonance. Although words may be used in Satsang, much of what the Guru does is through a deeper silent transmission of the heart. Through this intimate association, one ultimately comes to see that the Master is with you wherever you are.
