Online Satsang Exams

Venue: Sydney, 1-3 Tasha Place, Kings Park, Sydney, NSW 2148, Australia

Dharmik Pariksha

2010 has been a great year with loads of events and utsavs. It is almost the end of the Hindu Year, and time to re-cap on what we have learnt over the year. Sydney Temple has been doing satsang exams for 3 consecutive years and this will be the 4th one. We believe that if every educational organisation such as Schools or Universities have exams then why should Satsang be any different.

The Date - 11 Dec 2010

  • The date is after uni exams, which will give uni students a good 2 weeks of revision time. It is recommended that Non-uni satsangi devotees should start early revision and not wait till the last minute, as university students are very fast learners. They can catch up very fast.
  • The date is just before Annual santos arrive, meaning santos can hand the awards to the best performing devotees.

Examination Strategy

  • There will be 4 levels in the examination (oral <10 years, easy 10-15 years,medium ,hard)
  • The age line between hard and easy is blurry as there could be satsangi devotees who are young, wanting to do the hard level, and vice versa
  • Examination is like an utsav event, it creates utsah to study deeper and engages the satsang community to create an enviroment to discuss about satsang topics
  • Material that was covered in this year will be tested on, this will allow to know how well the material was digested, and what we need to improve on.
