Satsang with Swami Nishchalananda

The latest in the series of the bi-weekly Friday evening Satsangs, given on 4th December 2020, and hosted by Mandala Yoga Ashram.

Swamiji delivered a thought-provoking Satsang highlighting that, whether we like it or not, the experience of change is a fundamental aspect of our embodied experience. He was also clear that as fundamental, if not more, is the ‘conscious presence’, the Reality that underlies all that appears to change. He challenged us to accept or to realise that fundamentally nothing changes, that fundamentally all that appears to change is a reflection or expression of That which Is.

He then moved on to discuss the ways in which human behaviour has negatively impacted Mother Earth/’Gaia’ and how this pandemic may help us in changing our behaviours towards the environment, how we travel, what we eat etc?

Ultimately Swamiji presented us with the paradox that whilst this planet is of vital importance, in terms of our place in the universe, it is also insignificant and that ultimately all that appears as form will change and pass.

Questions were asked and a guided meditation was given to finish.
