sat = true, sanga = company) describes in Indian philosophy (1) the company of the "highest truth," (2) the company of a guru
, and (3) company with an assembly of persons who listen to, talk about, and assimilate the truth. This typically involves listening to or reading scriptures, reflecting on, discussing and assimilating their meaning, meditating
on the source of these words, and bringing their meaning into one’s daily life. Contemporary satsang teachers in the West - frequently coming from the Advaita Vedanta
tradition - sometimes mix traditional Eastern knowledge with methods of modern psychology.
During a satsang with a master, students are likely to ask questions. Satsangs also may contain elements like lectures, meditations, singing and recitations.
