“The word ‘Satsanga’ is the combination of the two words ‘Sat’ and ‘Sanga.’ ‘Sat’ means existence absolute, which is Brahman. ‘Sat’ is the essential nature of Brahman which is permanent in things that change, which is the only reality that upholds the world of appearance.”
“‘Sanga’ literally means company or union. To be always in the company of the Lord, or to
be established in Brahman, is the literal meaning of the word ‘Satsanga.’ But, as long as ignorance or Avidya remains, the direct realisation of Brahman is impossible. When ignorance is destroyed by wisdom, the real nature reveals itself. This is the highest Satsanga.”
In physics we found inter-molecular force which is in molecules and activates when two molecules of the same property come near to each other. In other words we can say that two things with same quality attract each other and makes bonds and union.
From the subliminal depths of matter to the most advanced individualized human being the rule of progress is same. If one keeps noble thoughts in one’s mind, tender and affectionate emotions in heart and noble deeds in physical acts, he will attract the people of the same nobility and make his company noble which will boost his progress to zenith.
Therefore, while some people of the same aspirations meet they only spread the vibration of the same quality and attract more compatible persons to join their ‘Sanga’. There are people who are primarily concerned with their basic needs i.e. to eat, drink, to sleep, to make money, to reproduce etc. on the other side there are others who want to do something for their family, community, society, nation or the whole world.
In fact, this consonance of the noble thoughts, emotions and deeds in the society is main leaver of collective progress of each and every person of the society and on wider level of the whole nation and the world as well.
Thus, if we want to make a noble society and noble world we have to keep noble thoughts in our mind and integrally be noble (Arya). To be noble we must be do ‘Satsanga’ to be always connected to the
nobility of thoughts, feelings, emotions and acts.
