Satsang Programme
Each day there will be a spiritual discourse beginning at 10.00 am, followed by a Question & Answer session. Those residing in the invited countries are welcome to attend. Everyone is requested to be seated by 9.30 am at the latest. Please allow an extra 20 minutes to make your way from the car parks to taking your seat in the Satsang Tent. Children 10 years of age and older are permitted to attend Satsang. Children under 10 years of age must go to the Family Area accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Restricted Items
Please do not carry mobile phones with you on the Estate as their use is strictly forbidden. Leave these in your car or coach. Failing that, they can be deposited in the baggage storage areas. Phones deposited at the baggage points can be collected only after satsang. Other electronic items, including audio & video recording devices, cameras, iPods/iPads, MP3 players and binoculars must not be brought or used on the Estate.

In the Satsang Tent
Large bags, food and drinks will NOT be permitted inside the Satsang Tent. Anyone with any of these items must leave them in their vehicles, if not they will be required to deposit them. Only a small handbag will be allowed inside the Satsang Tent.

Question & Answer Session
After the discourse, there will be a Question & Answer session. Only those 18 years of age and older may ask questions. Please try to prepare your question in advance and ask only one question so that others may also have an opportunity. Questions should be short, precise and related to spiritual matters only. The reading of long passages from books and letters or questions written by others takes away the opportunity for personal communication and should be avoided.

Seating
The sangat must be seated by 9.30 am. If you leave your seat, and do not return by 9.40 am you will be required to sit at the back of the tent, so please take your belongings with you. Chairs for those with a severe physical disability may be reserved through your local centre Secretary/Co-ordinator. Limited chairs will be available for the general sangat. Reserving or holding seats for others will not be permitted.

Simultaneous Translation
There will be simultaneous translation from Punjabi into English only. A designated seating area in the Satsang Tent with headphones has been arranged for this purpose. Please note that there is limited seating in this area, available on a first come first served basis.

Weather
The average temperature in the Haynes Park area is 22/12 °C (71/53 °F) at this time of year. It can be wet and windy, so a warm jacket and shawl is recommended. The Satsang Tent is without heating facilities so please dress appropriately. Please be considerate of others with health issues (allergies, asthma, etc.) and avoid wearing any perfumes, essential oils, or other strong scents.

Shoes and Clothing
The ground may be uneven so wear appropriate footwear. In the tent keep your shoes with you at all times, even if you take them off. If it rains, plastic bags will be provided for shoes if required. There is a store for umbrellas in the tent. Please note that the floor covering in the tent may not be colourfast.
