Satsang Exams



The weekly audio 'Satsang Sabha' is a new addition to provide spiritual knowledge and inspiration for devotees and aspirants.

Bhagwan Swaminarayan emphasized the need to read, listen and deliver discourses for spiritual development. He said that there is no other better sadhna to elevate one's soul than to listen to discourses with faith and love. He further added that it is the foundation of one's satsang and without it one would never attain virtues. Bhagwan Swaminarayan always inspired the reading of scriptures and He also discoursed to His congregation (compiled into the Vachanamrut).

Aksharbrahma Gunatitanand Swami was an untiring speaker who advocated the fleeting nature of worldly pleasures and extolled the glory of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He arranged 24-hour discourses in Junagadh, where eight readers read scriptures in the assembly hall, each for three hours.

Brahmaswarup Bhagatji Maharaj and Shastriji Maharaj continued the tradition of spiritual discourses. Brahmaswarup Yogiji Maharaj established the Sunday Assembly for all devotees. Today, HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj has promoted the Sunday Assembly throughout the world at all BAPS Centers. To furthur savor the joys of spiritual discourses, through the inspiration of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, we present an audio Satsang Sabha on a weekly basis. This is not an alternative to the regular Sunday Assembly, but an addition.

While listening to this audio Satsang Sabha, we advise all devotees to sit comfortably and listen with concentration and smruti (remembering Maharaj and Swamishri), avoiding all distractions, disturbances and noises.

Each Satsang Sabha will commence with manglacharan (offering respects to God and Guru), dhun and prarthana (prayer). There are 5 different dhuns and prarthanas, will be repeated every month. This is followed by a short discourse by a senior sadhu and thereafter by Swamishri's blessings. The entire audio Satsang Sabha will last for about 30 minutes.

We hope this website Satsang Sabha, available every Wednesday, will bring you peace and happiness, and enrich your spiritual knowledge and faith. We request that you inform others, so that they, too, can avail of this weekly satsang.
