  3. Desktop, laptop or iPad are preferred. If phones have to be used please use a mounting device. Keep your device fully charged. Use a stand/support for your device for stable video. Do not frequently move the device as it can distract the speaker and other participants.
  4. Always join with your Full Name and with video ON. Be sure the Moderator and other participants can see your full face clearly.
  5. Please use the device audio and Keep audio on mute; Unmute only when you are required to speak. If possible, use appropriate headsets to avoid distraction to yourself and others
  6. Sit in a clean, proper place (study or prayer room if possible) with good lighting and minimum disturbances or distractions.
  7. Virtual Satsang is also a place of learning and worship, so please dress appropriately and be presentable, as you would come to the Ashram.
  8. Please be prepared with your Bhagavad Gita for Swamiji’s class and assigned textbooks for study groups.
  9. Respect for self is respect for others. Use the “raise your hand” (feature) and wait for your turn before speaking.

  11. Be active and refrain from multitasking while you are in the class. Do not eat or walk around, do not engage in other side conversations or activities while you are in class.
    May the blessings of the Lord be always with us
