Obeisance to the perfect Guru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi,
who has revealed the Truth of the Self
in flawless instruction and eloquent Silence,
and who abides as That – Brahman.
He is doubtlessly Siva, destroying the illusion of bondage.
He reveals Self-Knowledge, perfect and true.
To absorb His teaching, practice it, and realize it
is to abide in eternal peace and illimitable bliss.
The Society of Abidance in Truth (SAT Temple) is a spiritual nonprofit organization consecrated to the teachings of Advaita Vedanta, especially as revealed by Sri Ramana Maharshi. These teachings emphasize nondual Self-Knowledge and deal with Self-Realization, the primary means of attaining which is the spiritual practice of Self-Inquiry.
Spiritual guidance in the various sacred events at the SAT Temple is provided by Nome, a sage who practiced the inquiry for steady abidance in Self-Realization.
The Society of Abidance in Truth is known by the acronym SAT. This corresponds to the Sanskrit term “Sat”, which means Truth, Reality, Existence, or Being.

Questioner: Yes, I very much appreciate this satsang and this holy place in which to meditate and all that is here that reminds me of the Self and of Ramana Maharshi’s presence.
Nome: The whole purpose of having SAT has been one thing ever since its inception. It is to provide a place for pure, unalloyed Truth, a place for people to realize, and a place where people can engage in a practice that is pure Self-Knowledge. It has been for the purpose of real spiritual freedom, real spiritual peace, a place for Truth. Hence it is called a Society of Abidance in Truth. A place where you can abide in Truth is sacred. If that place is within you, within is sacred. If it is manifest outwardly, that is also sacred.
