Welcome to Edition Naam's audio satsang archive. Here you will find almost 3 gigabytes of audio recordings free for the download. Encoded in MP3 format, these files are compressed audio tracks from Video recordings of Sant Thakar Singh made during His lifetime. We have also begun our collection of Sant Baljit Singh materials, too. Almost all of these talks are available for sale in video format as VHS tape or DVD (NTSC only, sorry) through this web site.
Note about Sound quality: All of our listen-online MP3 files were variable bitrate encoded at approx. 32Kbps. This is acceptible for the internet; but if you would like high fidelity recordings, we also have those available both in Audio CD (analog) and MP3 (digital) formats. If you enjoy this online archive, consider buying an MP3 disk. Your ears will appreciate the difference.

I have one talk which was simply labeled "Talk from India" and was in the "Miscellaneous" folder. It is probably the oldest talk in the archive judged by Master's voice and inflection; but the date is unknown.
[This has since been identified as May 19th, 1987 and was recorded in Mandri, India. Digital Video of this beautiful talk is available on Volume One of Legacy Of Love.]
The one talk in the archive from this year is described as "October, 1997, Fort Lauderdale Florida."
We have one talk in the archive from this year described as "1998, Lighthouse Center Oregon"
[This was later identified as June 26, Morning of that year.]
Sant Thakar Singh visited Russia, the Ukraine, Italy, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Korea, and Taiwan in 1999. The audio materials in the archive are from the 5th to the 27th of July, principly from His extended stop at Lighthouse Center Oregon. There are also eight talks given in Santa Barbara, CA, from July 5th to July 8th.
Sant Thakar Singh visited the Ukraine, Italy, the United States, Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, and Chile in 2001. The audio materials in the archive are from the two main United States stops, at Manav Kendra Florida (aka "The Farm") and Lighthouse Center Oregon.
Sant Thakar Singh visited Korea, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States in 2002. We have audio in the archive from the Australian and New Zealand stops as well as LCO. Many of the LCO talks were compiled in book form in The Way Of Life, 2002, available on this website.
The Master spent the remainder of His life in India due to illness. During this period He spent time in Sai, a little village about 30 kilometers from Nawan Nagar. The Master made first mention of His successor in a talk on Sep. 19th, elaborated on the matter on the 20th, and then showed the assembled satsang a picture of Sant Baljit Singh on Sep. 21st, 2004. These talks are all included here in the archive, although the audio is in the original Hindi in most cases.
Some (but not all) of these talks found their way into Live The Life Of Soul
The most recent recordings in the archive are from Sant Thakar Singh's Successor, Sant Baljit Singh.
Recorded at Pimpalner, India
KTSI has made the first substantial interview with Sant Baljit Singh available as MP3 files on their website.
Before the Retreat, management had stated Sant Baljit Singh would not give satsangs (talks), but would meditate each night with the participants. Luckily before and after each meditation session the Master did make some informal remarks about meditation and these are a priceless introduction to the new Master, full of laughter tempered with seriousness. These remarks were put together as four A/V disks with high quality audio and are available for purchase in DVD, VHS, and Audio CD formats. However, the audio CD tracks have been MP3 encoded here for your convenience:

In 2003, two video tapes were created from exerpts of talks by Sant Thakar Singh on the subject of Selfless Service (or "seva"). The audio from these tapes is made available here in the archive. Service is critically important on the Path and these exerpts hold valuable insights on what Selfless Service is and how to do it effectively.
