Why Satya Sadhna?
A HAPPY AND A BALANCED LIFE. IT CHANGES OUR PERSPECTIVE FROM thinking about ‘I’ TO ‘WE’. IT MAKES US TOLERANT, PATIENT AND ENSURES WE START THINKING ABOUT THE WELFARE OF OTHERS. Practicing satya sadhna DECREASES STRESS and ANXIETY, AND ENABLES us to START ACCEPTING OUTCOMES WITHOUT ANY GRUDGES, COMPLAINTS or expectations.
When you look closely there’s life within us, and there’s life around us - the inner world and the outer world. The outer world consists of people, situations and things, both animate and inanimate. While the world around us has a large influence on us, it’s only the quality of our inner world that defines the quality of our life. You might have the best of things and people around you, and life might appear to be luxurious and beautiful, but if your inner world is disturbed and unpleasant, then the quality of life is bad. It is the state of your inner self that defines the quality of your life, every moment. If you can appreciate this aspect you will realise that each moment of life is filled with beauty. But what do you do? You base your base your life entirely on the outside world - on people, things, luxuries and situations. Of course,
they are important. But almost always, you shift your entire focus on making the outside world better. On making situations better. On keeping people around you happy. On making things around you better. Without really putting any effort in improving your inner self. It is almost like taking care of the trunk, the leaves, the flowers and the fruit, without taking care of the roots. If you divert all your attention to making your inner self better, then you don’t have to worry about anything else. Once you do that, everything will come together naturally, making your life better in a holistic manner. And you start helping others in making their life blissful. So how do you make your inner self better? There’s a simple and effective path - Satya Sadhna.

The five precepts are:
During the first three days of Satya Sadhna, you will be taught Swash Darshan - discovering your breath by simply teaching you to concentrate on your breath around the moustache area and feel the respiration. The next few days you will learn the art of Satya Darshan - being aware of the truth, by teaching you to observe every little sensation on your body and not react to it. By doing so, you train your mind to be equanimous.
1. Follow the Truth: To live life honestly 2. Abstain from killing anyone: To live a nonviolent life 3. Never steal
On the tenth day, you will practice Maitri Sadhna, that is sharing the joy of the peace and tranquility you gained with the whole universe, thereby spreading the joy and gratification of Satya Sadhna.
