Satsang simply means "gathering in truth".
It is a place for people to sit, meditate, rest in the truth of who
they are, and share their deepest truth if desired.
Satsang is about re-discovering
total freedom and empowerment within you by dropping into the
whole, divine and spiritually empowered being you already are.
The being that is clear, relaxed, joyous and radically true to
you. This experience can spontaneously occur while simply
resting consciously in the deepest parts of your being.
You can think
of satsang as a time for you to let go, and allow yourself to
uncover the darkest depth, and the brightest lightness of your
own being. This naturally occurs when sitting in group of
being holding the same intention, and can direct you to find the
greatest healing and brilliance inside.
"You are the
Supreme Being, and yet thinking yourself to be separate from it, you
strive to become united with it. What is stranger than this?"
If there was an intention with Satsang, it would
be to have a direct experience of the divine all powerful presence
which is here now inside us all. By
simply sitting, being present to your life, to who you truly are,
resting deep inside, our exquisite sacred nature is naturally
revealed and experienced.
Tonight is an opportunity to dive inside yourself
and explore this extraordinary communion with the Divine that is
within us and around us all the time. Jafree will be taking
the group on a guided inner journey that will bring you there, and
given the time to explore yourself in new way that you've never
It is a night that you can peel away and reveal a new level of
clarity about who you are, and what your mission is at this time.
Satsang with Jafree
Jafree has been
holding group meditations and public satsang gatherings around the
world since 1996. He had his first spiritual awakening sitting
with Papaji in India in 1995, who was under the lineage of
Ramana Marharshi. Since then, Jafree has held many public
gatherings in Colorado, Hawaii, and Tiruvanamali, India. You
can read Jafree's autobiography and learn more about his work at
In Jafree's satsangs
there is always laughter, fun, depth,
silence, and a safe container to share what is authentic and true
for you. His meetings are a chance to be real about your life.
His gatherings are an opportunity to speak about what you perhaps
cannot normally speak about, and find support/guidance in an area in
your life where you are needing assistance.
As always, there's
no need to do anything or say anything in Satsang. You can
come in silence and leave in silence if you wish. You do not
have to share or reveal anything. You can come to just listen,
relax, rest, meditate, sleep or just hang out amongst friends.
The satsang gathering is a time to discover a way to truly be at
ease within yourself and connect with that deepest part which has a
direct communion with the Divine.
You may experience this evening as a time to
recharge your batteries, explore your spiritual essence, look at
what you want to create out of your life, and see your reflection in
the minds and hearts of the others who share their life experiences
in your community.
Apologies for the unprofessional recording
Satsang is not about fixing
yourself. It's not about overcoming all your personal
fears, blocks, negative thoughts or limitations. Satsang
is not about getting rid of anything, such as thinking positive
thoughts to be rid of the negative ones. It's also not
about getting anything accomplished, completed or creating
anything new inside yourself.
You don't have to let go of
anything, heal anything, or do anything to experience Satsang.
It is simply a meeting in truth with yourself where you can
relax, rest, listen, and sit with what is going on in your life.
I find sitting in a group of beings
exploring the truth of who they are naturally expands my
experience of myself and my mind's limited perception of who I
am. I also find that whenever I give myself permission to
be open and share myself intimately within a group, I remove my
armor, let down my guard, and become open to letting in a fresh
new enlightening experience of life. As we let the world
see deeper into us, we can see deeper into ourselves and truly
liberate ourselves from the masks we don't know we are wearing.
Sharing oneself openly in an honest,
safe and sincere way is perhaps the welcome terrifying, freeing
and empowering experience we can do. I find that the more
we each reach deeply inside ourselves, and are connecting with
each other in a vulnerable, honest and real manner, we create a
community that is a constant safe container that is healing,
welcoming of all our parts, and can explore this divine depth
and sacred sweet being being we all truly are.
Enlightening Quotes to Meditate Upon
"You have absolutely
nothing to give up, nothing to surrender, nothing to let go of. You
are already liberated. How can you believe that you have to let go
of something that never existed. It's just Maya. You think that you
have to let go of your attachments, your fears, your worries, your
thoughts. How can the Eternal Self have attachments? It is always
pure, untainted and unattached. It is always opening, experiencing
presence." -Robert Adams
"Find the source of the
"I". Follow it diligently until you merge with the Source." ~Robert
"If there is a primary
practice or path to enlightenment, this is it, to cease cherishing
"Every thought, every feeling,
is a visitor. You just say: Welcome! Come in and sit
with me." ~Pamela
knows the Self has nothing more to do, nor has he
any more thoughts. From then on, the infinite power
will carry out all further actions that may be
necessary for him." ~Ramana Maharshi
"Trying to quiet the mind is
just some noise trying to make some other noise, less noisy.
Simply recognize that which is already silent." ~Gangaji
"The mind does not exist apart
from the Self, that is, it has no independent existence. The Self
exists without the mind, never the mind without the Self." ~Ramana
"There are basically two
movements of consciousness: Love and Fear. Love is allowing what is
and fear is resisting it." ~Nirmala
Dramatically Enlighten Your
Simply by Just Sitting in Satsang
Absolutely. When you create the time and
space to relax and go deep inside yourself, miraculous things
can occur. Resting in your innermost
being and speaking your truth when it's burning inside, is
perhaps the greatest catalyst for deepening in the self
Satsang is a gentle remembering of who you truly
are. When we get attached to who we "think" we are, we
suffer and abandon our soul. The
ego-trip we get on attempts to expand our mind and become
someone better. When we have
decided to find peace within ourselves, it becomes a priority
over fixing ourselves and this is when the magic occurs.
As you may know, deep realizations about yourself
and your life can happen anytime, whether you're deep in
meditation or chatting with a friend at the local cafe.
However, when we create the container in a group for profound clarity to
pour through, spirit somehow naturally finds a way for it to enter your
heart and mind.
Our natural state is Divine. This
consciousness that we are is pure, eternal, unlimited, and free
from all harm. When you simply bring your attention
inside, being with yourself, being with what is, looking at who
you truly are, this divine truth becomes self evident.
The more often that you rest in this pure
consciousness everything simply becomes more clear in your life.
When the fish stops swimming circles in its tiny fishbowl, the
water settles and life becomes clear enough to see through the
In regards to one's spiritual awakening, when
the fruit is ripe it naturally falls
from the tree. When your ego is done serving you, it simply falls
away. You can try to realize that you are not your ego and
try to drop
it a million times,
yet there will be one day when it simply falls by itself and you don't
have to try to transcend it or drop it again.
Patience and compassion with yourself is the golden key to this
Through a deep relaxation into our darkness,
we will find our brightest self. When we
are no longer distracted by the mind and it's illusions, we can
go of trying to become spiritual or enlightened, and simply relax into
this pure soul we already are! It
is in this relaxation in which we re-discover the Infinite Source
of Love that is
naturally contained within our
The moment we
can surrender and stop the worried chattering mind, we can truly
relax into our Being. A space of deep inner peace is not far away at all!
It just takes trust, being the witnesser and being open to it
When you can finally relax, there is a GREAT knowing that
everything is totally O.K. exactly the way it is. This
knowing goes beyond everything, as it understands that everything is
O.K. and realizes just how grand, divine perfect the Universe truly
It's good to remember that healing happens naturally, effortlessly
on its own accord. Yet, getting to this most relaxed place
occurs from a consistent surrender to the deepest part of your
being. This frees your mind that is caught in the Illusion
that you are separate from an Infinite Source of Love. Through
awareness and love, you awaken and everyone will continuously be
your teacher, showing
you the way home.
comes from over-identification with your
ego and mind. When you have become over-identified, you get
confused, thinking you are your name, your thoughts, feelings,
your body, or anything associated with the material world.
You forget that you are this divine infinite soul that will
never die. We are temporarily a part of the physical
world, yet in actuality we always exist on a realm that is
beyond the physical.
If you would like to discover
the divine spiritual being that you are, simply come to sit and
rest inside yourself. One day you will find that
you yourself are the master.
It takes a very patient being to realize this, and to be at
peace with whatever arises...yet this is what mind mastery and
life mastery is about.
I believe there is a
unique spiritual path for each and every individual on the planet and one for each
individual. Every being is on their own unique spiritual path
which is perfect. Their life is perfect, divine and
complete as it is. You may find
that just sitting in satsang it will open a door for you, so that you can
truly relax and enjoy the divine all powerful being of who you really are.
