Satsang - Association with Truth

Nov 11, 2017 5:30pm-7:30pm (ended)

Satsang at MA Center Atlanta can be simply described as an active meditation in the form of Bhakti Yoga - union with one's Higher Self through love and devotion. People from literally every major religion, ethnicity, tradition and culture, come together as family to participate in this evening focused on upliftment through music, chanting, spiritual discourse and brief silent meditation. 

Sat = Supreme Truth | Sang = Association/Gathering

Though the term Satsang can be interpreted with deeper meanings, it could be simply understood as associating with truth, that truth being the ever-present goodness within all.
