Prajnaparamita likes to see everyone who is at satsang. For this reason, we ask you to please keep your camera turned on for the whole satsang.

Step 4

Choose your view

At the top right of your screen is a button that lets you switch between Speaker view or Gallery view. We suggest you use Speaker view during the satsang. Before and after satsang, if you want to see everyone’s faces, you can select Gallery view.

Step 5

Make sure you are sitting comfortably

Make sure you are not seated in front of a bright light, such as a window. Check that your face is well lit. This improves the quality of experience for everybody 😊

On that note, please do not eat or drink during satsang as it is distracting for those on the other side of the screen. Switch of your phone so you will not be interrupted.

Step 6

Asking questions

At the bottom of the screen click on the Participants icon. Then select Raise Hand. Now the moderator knows you would like to ask a question. Please do not ask questions via the chat.

When you are selected to ask a question, the moderator will ask if they can unmute you. Click the blue Unmute button. Now we can hear you.

Once the conversation ends, the moderator will put you back on Mute.
