is a Sanskrit word that means "association with Truth." It is usually a gathering of
those seeking the ultimate Truth and a teacher who has realized what "Truth is"
and what "Truth is not." The words and grace which the teacher provides during
satsang enables the seekers to discover Truth within themselves. This discovery
is called "a spiritual awakening," and is the beginning of a clearing process which eventually leads to "Enlightenment."
Aruna offers satsang in Tokyo twice a month and in other locations by request.
"I used to think that those who are awakened or enlightened are special people, different from the rest of us. I had both the desire to become special, and the fear of becoming arrogant if I did.
Before attending satsang I questioned why I had been born, and was looking for something to relieve an inner discomfort, but did not know what I was looking for.
By listening to Aruna and others who spoke in satsang, my conditioning and long held misconceptions have gradually dissolved.
I have come to realize that awakening and enlightenment are not personal and they do not make you special or arrogant. They are about being in the here and now."
