Our next satsang is on Friday, May 12th, and the following satsang is on June 16th. Please note that the July and August satsangs will both be on the beach (including potluck vegetarian dinner!) We’re taking song requests for the beach satsangs, so if you have a favourite kirtan/bhajan from the Kshama Sagar Bhakti Mala booklet, write to us and let us know!
You may have noticed at our last satsang that we are renewing our attempt to provide a devotional atmosphere from the moment you walk into the space, until our chai time, which is the social and fun time. What this means is that satsang is now a cell phone/device free space. Please power down when you arrive. While we have allowed photography and video in the past, these things can distract from the devotion in the moment. Please refrain from using devices or cell phones until the chai time after 9 pm, when you may feel free to take pictures. At some point in the future, if we bring in a professional photographer/videographer to record the satsang, we will give satsang attendees a month’s advance notice, so that people are aware that the satsang (and people attending) will be filmed.
We’re looking forward to seeing you!

In India, Yeshu is Hindi for “Jesus.” Satsang means “gathering of the truth.” Typically, satsangs in India are gatherings of people who worship together, often using devotional songs called bhajans and kirtans. You are invited to join us in worshiping Jesus in an Indian way. We’ll be sitting on the floor, with incense, flowers and oil lamps, surrounded by the sounds of sitar, tabla, and other Indian and western instruments. The songbooks provided are in Hindi (with English translations) written so that you can join in. Fruit and Indian sweets (prasad) will be served afterward.
Feel free to pass on this invitation to anyone who you think would feel refreshed, or interested in Yeshu Bhakti (Indian tradition of devotion to Jesus.)
