Sadhviji’s Divine LIVE Satsang
In tonight’s Divine LIVE Satsang from the Divine Garden at Parmarth Niketan, Pujya Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati Ji responds to questions from our global family with answers that take us deeper onto our spiritual path.
Tonight’s first question comes from one of Sadhviji’s followers on Facebook, who wants to know why he gets so angry all the time, despite all of his efforts to subdue it. In response, Sadhviji shares that anger is something that afflicts so many people, and the reason that they’re angry is because the subconscious mind reacts to a given situation. When we’re fully present in our consciousness, she says, that’s not when we react in anger. We might feel anger when we read about how many people go to bed hungry every night, but that’s not the type of anger that makes us punch holes in wall. That type of anger comes when we are unconscious. So our conscious mind may say, “No more anger,” but our subconscious mind isn’t communicating with our conscious mind. So, if we’re anchored and grounded in consciousness, we can talk ourselves out of it. And, by meditating, we become trained to remain conscious.
Next, a family member in the Divine Garden wants to know if the goal of a spiritual path is to be blissful all the time, or if it’s okay just to be okay with whatever is going on. Sadhviji reminds us about the teachings of the Bhagawad Gita, which speaks of equanimity – the feeling that, regardless of what is happening on the external level, we are the same. We are anchored in a river of joy and love and divinity that flows through us.
Then, another member in the Garden, who lost his wife three months ago, wants to know how to be happy again – despite people that try to minimize his pain. Watch and listen as Sadhviji shares how to overlook people’s awkward attempts to make you feel better after a loss – and, how to regain the happiness that the loss has brought.
