Week of Mar 31st - Apr 6th, 2014

"Will, or imagination, or reason, or emotion powers cannot of themselves effect physical healing. They act only as different agents, which, according to the varying temperature of individuals, may stimulate the Life Energy to cure an ailment. In a case of paralysis of the arm, if the will or imagination is continuously stimulated, the Life Energy may suddenly rush to the diseased nerve tissues and heal the arm."

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

 Please join us this Sunday, April 06 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “Life Energy – The Power That Heals". The service is from 11 am to 12 noon.

The Center is open to the public for services and special activities.

The eternal life of God flows through me. I am immortal. Behind the wave of my mind is the ocean of Cosmic Consciousness.”

Announcements:

  • Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held in the Chapel this Saturday, April 05 starting at 8:30am. We dedicate only one day a month to the care and upkeep of Master’s sanctuary in Houston so that it remains a magnet for those seeking to meditate together or to learn of Self-Realization Fellowship for the first time. If you are planning to attend, please let Sudha know (by emailing him at vasudhaven@yahoo.com) as this will help us to organize head count for the lunch on the Day of Service.
  • On Friday, April 18, the chapel will be open for private meditation from 5 pm to 9 pm in commemoration of Good Friday. Please note that this will be a self-guided meditation.
  • On Saturday, May 03, we will be hosting an Open House at our Houston Center from 1:00 pm onwards. This event will consist of Meditation, Devotional Chanting, Video Presentation, and Refreshments, and will be an excellent opportunity for newcomers to learn about Self Realization Fellowship and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. We hope that you are able to spread the word.
  • We would like to inform everyone that we are organizing a fundraising drive to raise $4,500 for upgrading the Audio-Visual cabling in the Chapel. If you would like to make a donation, please deposit your cash or check in an envelope with the memo indicating that it is for Audio-Visual (AV) equipment, and place it in the basket located on the brown podium in the foyer. If you have any questions about this fundraising drive, please contact a member of the Managing Team.
