Satsanga Service

Satsanga is a term used to describe a ‘coming together for Truth’.

At Berkeley Temple a Satsanga Service is an opportunity for members to receive answers to their pre-written spiritual questions which will be addressed by our ministers during the monthly Satsanga Services. 

Pre-written questions may be submitted in one of two ways:

 1.  Placed in the box located in the back of the Main Chapel titled Satsanga Questions.
 2.  By using the form at berkeleytemple.org/satsanga-questions. 

All questions will be considered and answered at the minister’s discretion.

 A minister-led meditation precedes the Satsanga from 7:00 – 7:45 pm.
