What is Satsang?
Satsang brings you to inner peace. It frees you from worries.
Satsang is a unique chance to realize peace and happiness as your true nature.
Let's explain: Satsangs are gatherings where busy minds cool down. Through silence, meditation, dialogue, music and dance.
With Madhukar’s presence and guidance you experience a tranquil state of consciousness. That enhances wisdom and nurtures the mind towards inner peace.
People from all over the world and various backgrounds attend. We meditate. We listen and reflect. We dance. We laugh. We might chant mantras. The healthy effect of meditation and chanting is proven by now.
Through all this an anxious mind bothering about the past or future is drawn back into the present and experiences a more objective understanding how to enlighten life.
A lighter life. An enlightened life.
Isn't it much promised - to live an easier or enlightened life through Satsang? You may encounter these doubts and many more. You will find out only when you try it. Up to this point, everything has been said about Satsang that might be interesting. Now there are some answers to questions - but you can skip them if they are not important to you.

What does Satsang mean?
The word Satsang comes from Sanskrit and is composed of two syllables: sat (highest truth) + sangha (community). We can translate it as "being together in truth" or "being together with truth" or "being together with someone who has realized this highest truth". So we could call satsang being with the guru. A guru is also a consciousness teacher.
Who is the right one to be in satsang?
If you ask yourself, "How can I become enlightened?" then you are right in satsang. But since there are so many myths around enlightenment & awakening, I don't like to limit it to that at all. Therefore, you are especially right if you want to arrive at this moment, if you just want an easy life.

What kind of music is there in Satsang?
Traditionally in Satsang mantras, bhajans or kirtans are played and sung. The most famous is probably the Gayatri Mantra. Have you ever felt how it feels to be carried by the sounds of music in satsang? I think it's impossible to describe - you have to experience it. It can't be compared to anything.
Satsang and Om
Madhukar usually sounds the Om sound in satsang. It is said that the whole universe is built on this sound. And I have heard Madhukar say that this sound alone can lead to liberation - on a daily basis.
