साधना सत्संग SADHNA SATSANG
नवीन साधक को दीक्षा लेने के पश्चात कम से कम एक बार तो
साधना सत्संग में अवश्य सम्मिलित होना चाहिए.
A new devotee aspirant after being initiated should attend at least one Sadhna Satsang.
Venerable Swami Satyanandji had started the Sadhna Satsangs or retreats with the sole objective of imparting discipline and training to the devotees. These Sadhna Satsangs are a novel and unique gift of Swamiji to the devotees.
These Satsangs or retreats are organised for three to five nights where the aspirants, forgetting worldly cares and family attachments, practice spiritual practice, devotion or Sadhana. This removes all the obstacles in their spiritual progress. This is like a training school where they learn discipline, regularity and punctuality and also learn praying and chanting the Lords name. Their lives are shaped, as enshrined in Shree Bhagwad Geeta, as a person "who is regulated in diet and recreation, disciplined in the performance of work".
"YUKTAHAR VIHARASYA, YUKTA CHESHTASYA KARMESHU"
These five night-long retreats are very important and useful. Continued stay in close contact with the spiritual guide for five days enables us to live meaningful and purposeful life for 360 days of the year by helping and guiding our day to day life.
It is here that we learn the values of cleanliness, regularity, punctuality, good conduct, service, self-control, restraint, humility and compassion. In other words we learn to become good human beings. Our daily routine should be as per the routine followed in Sadhna Satsangs. These retreats are organised in many parts of India (Prayer Centres). Our main Satsangs, about 6-7 in a year, are organized in Shree Ram Sharnam, Haridwar.
