As the process of meditation is emotional and unpredictable, there are times when we need motivation and support, not information. Difficult times teaches us that the sangat is more valuable than knowledge. The nature of the process is such that, a bad sangat makes progress slow or difficult whereas, the right sangat makes everything possible. Sangat becomes a healing place, a safety net and creates a strength in unity.
As we develop confidence and clarity, we shift from survival to a comfortable lifestyle where we can enjoy quality engagement with the inner system. We are born dependent. With time we become dependent on sangat – this dependency creates
certainty. We are no longer focused on the body’s greed.
