12 May Dr. Jayadeva on ‘Satya’ at the Satsang, 12th May 2013
The topic for the Hindi Satsang on Sunday, 12th May, 2013 was ‘Satya.’ (Truth)
Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.
Listen to the audio:
“Speak truth. These words have been told to us right from our childhood in schools and everywhere. But shall we tell the truth – That we never speak the truth? We tell lies and say that ‘We always speak the truth.’ It’s easy to speak untruth and get away. We don’t realize the consequences. See, we are not able to observe things properly, we are not very conscientious to convey them; we are never bothered to see the results, all this happens. So if you honestly ask yourself; and this I can give as a challenge to you – that do you speak the truth from morning till night? The real answer is ‘No’ but none sitting here will say ‘Yes’ because we are habituated to speak untruth and believe it. A very ordinary looking man like Gandhiji, right from the beginning decided to speak truth and right till the end he kept to that and what a change he brought into the country just speaking the truth.”
Satsang is an open meeting held every Sunday from 9:30 to 10:30 am at The Yoga Institute, Santacruz East, Mumbai. It involves an interesting presentation to the public, made by the students of the Teacher Training Course. Each week, a new presentation of a Yogic concept is made in a simple way through skits and decoration for the general public, followed by a short speech from our Gurus, Dr. Jayadeva and Smt. Hansaji Yogendra.
