“The principle of the Third Pillar Programs is to participate in an organized way with someone who has traversed the journey significantly, in order to allow you to know, in your own direct experience, what to live for, and how to organize your life. And how to awaken in you the same thing that’s awakened in me, so that it can take over your choices. So that it can give you the strength that you didn’t know you had. So that it can give you the faith in the process itself which will always be an uncovering of the faith in yourself, that Self that’s emerging.”

~Sat Shree, Third Pillar Session 3 Orientation, October 20, 2023

The Invitation

The Third Pillar program is an invitation to all who are called to join with Sat Shree, New Dharma, and this work. The six-week program is a dive into a direct and immediate immersion with the Sat Force. It is a giving over of oneself to its transformative power while being entrained into the Third Pillar Principle that Sat Shree embodies.

Sat Shree speaks about Three Pillars, the three principles and realities of this dimension: birth, death, and that which is beyond these two. This is the Third Pillar, the Pillar of the Guru, one who has become a living demonstration of this Third Pillar Principle. The path of birth and death is the one we have all been living all along. The path of the Guru takes us beyond that to the one eternal unchanging reality that is the ultimate realization, the truth of the Eternal Being, that lives within each of us.

The Third Pillar program is a structure which is designed to bring us into a direct experience of this eternal reality through the process of manifesting It. Participants in the program join in a fellowship of Truth, Faith, and willingness to go beyond what they have known. Participants co-create with each other a manifestation of what was previously mere potential. Through Seva, facilitating groups and meditations, offering talks and satsangs, participants open themselves to a direct transmission as they become expressions of the Third Pillar Principle for themselves and each other.

This program is a transmission, an incubation, and a demonstration of the Path of the Guru. It is a rare opportunity for each individual to know for themselves, personally and intimately, that such a path exists, and is worthy of your whole-hearted commitment for yourself and the world.

About the Program

“Co-create with each other a new dharma, a new New Dharma, one based on fellowship and shared humanity and the recognition that the divinity is already here, striving to manifest.”

~ Sat Shree, Third Pillar Session 2 Completion, September 29, 2023

I first learned about Sat Shree’s concept for the Third Pillar program in early spring of 2023. I write today from the gratitude and perspective of attending all three sessions; they have been nothing short of a full immersive experience of journeying deeply into the silence and stillness of the Guru principle while simultaneously engaging in the integration of that experience through active manifestation such as leading group presentations, light seva projects at the Satya Dharma Center and being in fellowship with the other course participants.

Life is short and the world is tempting. This is a rare opportunity to be in community with one who has traveled the complete path. Entrainment with such a being can wipe away lifetimes of wrong turns and missed opportunities, helping one to find and re-establish their true purpose for being here on this planet. This is the purpose of the Third Pillar. Honor the intent of your birth by committing to a powerful opportunity for making substantial strides toward the ultimate goal of every person on earth – to become the Third Pillar yourself and lead others toward that goal.

It has been, and is, beyond what I could ever imagine.

A being hit by the Guru. Hit at the core by the principle of the Third Pillar at work for a whole group, in essence – a whole universe. All else being there, the structure and such, a midwife orchestration of a miracle possibility in full-blown magnitude.

Multi-dimensional, an undoing in space and time, far beyond this life, body and person. And… so close as in the simplicity of relating to another, sharing popcorn, or going for a waterfall hike. Full-stretched spectrum of a fully human, fully divine – becoming One. No lines left to blur.

All I did was to organize my material circumstances enough to show up for the opportunity. And I stayed open to the gut-punching grind and rips of wonder, together with a fellowship of people sharing the same intention and willingness as myself.

All and nothing in it, for this me. In the embrace of what’s been here all along.

Following The Third Pillar sessions 2 and 3 I have experienced a huge shift not only from a spiritual perspective but also in how the programs have helped my human aspect. There’s been a reclamation of aspects of myself that had become fragmented & inaccessible over time. Now in feeling a sense of wholeness and greater alignment than ever with Sat Shree and the teachings, I can more readily give myself over in serving the manifestation. The fellowship has yielded an extraordinary synergy between the participants as we collaborated in the co-creation of these programs. If serving the collective is what you are called to then you must find a way to take part.

At the end of the last 6-week session I wrote an email to Sat Shree asking him for his advice. His advice cut across my preconceived idea of how I should behave in a Christmas family situation. He said: “You are a jolly one once you get started with people. There is nothing wrong with this. But remember you are carrying something now that is sacred and has a purpose. This is your role in life now. It is different from what you thought it was in the past.” I have always had a light-hearted approach to matters spiritual, I didn’t want to appear too serious, but it disguised a deep commitment to Truth. His words were spot on. I am 81 years old and have nothing to lose, so I followed his advice. Would I have done this at the beginning of the Pillar sessions? I think not, and yet it has been a turning point in my life. Own up, stop hiding. This is the most important thing in this life or in any life.

Participated in Third Pillar sessions 2 and 3, 2023

I attended two Third Pillar Programs with a strong sense of need… and lack. Despite fifty years of devoted psychological and spiritual digging, I was still without traction in the soil of my own Being. I was dismayed with myself, and felt an underlying desperation. The Third Pillar Programs stirred up my Being, forcefully, at many levels, known and unknown. I was emotionally and psychologically challenged by the continual proximity to others. Physically challenged by the schedule. Mentally enriched by the continual steeping in the teachings of Sat Shree, Meher Baba, Sri Aurobindo, and the Mother – which imprinted upon me new, more deeply felt conceptions of the Path I have chosen.

Above all, I was shaken, enlivened, aggravated, and illuminated by the Sat Force that infuses the sacred grounds here at New Dharma, as communicated by our dear Sat Shree. The result of all this has been profound, and will be impacting my unfolding Destiny in ways I cannot know, but do know will be immense. Those fifty years of inner work have received a booster shot of an intensity and reality I intuited that I needed, but could not truly conceive of without this actual experience. To whoever has a strong longing in heartfelt need of real response, I would urge you to get yourself to the Third Pillar Programs in Washoe Valley, Nevada.

The Third Pillar programs are a coming together of sincere seekers of Truth and pioneers of the New Humanity. They are a cauldron of transmission, transformation and manifestation. They are an opportunity to live and practice and speak the teachings that Sat Shree has imparted to us and is a living demonstration of. They are an opportunity, a sacred act and an offering of ourselves to a possibility we sense and do not yet know how to live fully. They are a rare opportunity to live from our deepest longings in service of each other and the world.

This description may seem ambitious but the programs are. They are an opportunity to create a whole new possibility for life for each one of us. They are here now and we don’t know how much longer they will be offered. Not to create a sense of urgency, just to convey the reality that these are here now for us to take advantage of. The Third Pillar programs are an opportunity to offer ourselves to create the new world we want to live together, one based on Love and Truth and the possibility for awakening for all of us.

Completing Session 3 of The Third Pillar program, from his experience participating with us, listening to each and every recording personally, Sat Shree revealed : “I see a tremendous possibility taking shape in your capacities to manifest, to bring this into the life you’ve lived, to make this your life. This is what I did, I made this my life. And that’s what New Dharma is. It’s a mature expression of creating a space, a place, a structure by which one can align themselves with a life where they’re no longer the doer, other than the surrender-er, or the letting-go-of-it-er, the one who’s willing to be engaged in the process and to stay engaged, to be loyal, to be faithful to that which is showing itself, regardless of whatever else might be kicking and screaming and wanting something other.”

This is my experience of three consecutive The Third Pillar program participations this year, this is the nature of the forward leap my life has made through the Grace of what Sat Shree has offered and empowered me to receive. It’s absolutely personal, from his person into my person. Going back or going forward is meaningless, I’ve arrived being where I am. Receiving the full impact of his personal attention, mysteriously my person has remained completely intact, simultaneous with becoming firmly and stably seated in the irrevocable movement to become what he is, and from there offer my personal experience of what he is to my world as I take full responsibility for creating it.
