What we're about

This meditation course will introduce you to a simple, but effective century old practice. It starts with calming your mind and takes you through a journey to lasting inner peace! This 60-minute guided meditation course starts with subtle meditative music and guidance on how to meditate on transcendent light. The core of the meditation is a 30-minute session that begins with transcendent light permeating the body and is practiced with complete silence. The session wraps up with another round of meditative music to transition out of meditation followed by Q&A.
This meditation practice is based on Satsang, a unique guided meditation practice, perfected by my grandfather Guru Maharaj Dr. Chaturbhuj Sahay. Satsang has its strong footing in ancient yoga and meditation practices. It has been refined and simplified to allow people to integrate meditation into their busy lifestyles seamlessly. Satsang is easy to do and understand. It is a truly non-intrusive practice that can be molded to suit your lifestyle and faith. This unique meditation practice can begin at only one hour daily and it is up to the individual to decide what they are comfortable with. 
Please join us in Satsang to benefit from this simple, effective, and modern path to an enlightened, stress-free, healthy and peaceful life.
No prerequisites.

Guru Maharaj Dr. Chaturbhuj Sahay perfected a guided meditation system on transcendent light. He refined and simplified ancient yoga and meditation practices, so it is easy to do and understand. It is a truly non-intrusive practice that can be molded to suit any lifestyle or faith. This unique meditation practice can begin at less than an hour daily to get some transformative results.

He established Ramashram Satsang Mathura as a nonprofit in 1930, that has freely helped millions of people and promoted a healthy and peaceful lifestyle through Satsang since then. He started a monthly Journal in Hindi in 1931 and wrote many books that includes a seven volume book describing his spiritual journey. 

His heart was always flowing with unconditional love for everyone. He served anyone and everyone who came to him and he always paid attention to anyone who sought his help.
He was habitually found in a meditative mood. Tranquility was writ large on his face.
He lived the life of a family man. He set an excellent example of how to combine spiritual idealism with domestic life. Serving his wife and children to the last breath, and mindfully attending to all domestic duties.

Satsang Bootcamp

Satsang Bootcamp
Introducing a new month-long meditation program for beginners to learn, practice and interact

2022 promises to be the year of peace, love and light through Satsang.

As a result of this pandemic, while online meditations have continued through the year but creating a community around these sessions has been challenging, so we want to create a more engaged community, initiate a more immersive experience and enhance the opportunities to learn about Satsang.

Today, we’re excited to share a new program called Satsang Bootcamp that will create a concrete space for seekers of peace to kickstart a sustainable meditation practice in the new year.

The Satsang volunteer team will connect the bootcamp participants to a small number of eight to ten fellow participants and a few mentors in the same region for four weeks of support and structured guidance through the month of February.

Participants will leave the program with an understanding of foundational elements of Satsang, a set of mentors and peers to turn to, and an evolving set of resources in text, audio and video to read, listen and watch.

Satsang as explained and practiced here was established in 1930 by Guru Maharaj Dr. Chaturbhuj Sahay Ji as a way to live a peaceful, purposeful and enlightened life. We are putting together bootcamps, workshops and immersive weekends to provide structured opportunities to connect, practice and learn.

If you’ve set a New Year's resolution to go deeper into your meditation practice, or to kickstart a new one, you don’t have to go at it alone. We hope you will join us for Satsang Bootcamp.

Love, Peace & Light!
Sanjiv
