Satsang is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘being in the company of the truth’ or ‘right association’, and refers to a group of like-minded people who engage in a spiritual dialogue. Shivakumar from Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry, facilitated a satsang session on April 9, 2018, at Churchgate Branch of Sri Aurobindo Society, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. He spoke on Practising ‘Samataa’ in the light of Integral Yoga, and took up one quote of Sri Aurobindo for a deeper dwelling on the various dimensions of Samataa (equanimity). About 35 devotees participated in the discussions.
After a brief review of the difficulty of practicing samataa in its fullness by looking at various incidences that happened in the lives of some of the great spiritual masters, Shivakumar explained at length the importance and the practice of samataa as practitioners of Integral Yoga. At the end, there were some interesting questions too which brought further clarity on the subject.
The entire satsang happened in an atmosphere of deep concentration and in the spiritual ambience of the Branch where relics of Sri Aurobindo were installed.
