The whole day at Satsang Bhawan throbs with various activities:
In early morning (divine hours) people who live in the premises of Satsang Bhawan get up at 2 AM for Meditation or Japa.
Every morning Satsang takes place from 4 A.M. to 5 A.M. All buses leave around 3 A.M. to pick up the spiritual aspirants from their respective stops in Ambala City & Ambala Cantt.
