Random Sparks of Non-Duality (Part Two)
"Satsang" is a Sanskrit word meaning "fellowship in truth." Satsangs are meetings designed for people who believe that they have to go somewhere, to learn from someone how to get to something, that is already here. However, if you believe that you need to go to Satsangs in order to find yourself - you should go, because there is no better place for you. You should keep going to them until you come to realize that there is no one at the meetings.
