Week of March 30 - April 05, 2015

“On this Easter occasion I hope all men may realize the real significance of the resurrection of Christ. Each human being must strive to resurrect his soul from all limitation. We can do so if we keep on continuously improving our lives physically, mentally and spiritually.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 


This Week's Services:

Please join us this Sunday, April 05 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “The True Significance of Resurrection”. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is also held from 11 am to 12 noon. The service is from 11 am to 12 noon. Parents with younger children may enjoy the service from the infant room located in the Sunday School building. The Reading Service is preceded by a meditation service from 10 to 10:45 am, and by group practice of the Self-Realization Fellowship Energization Exercises at 9:40 am. The Center is open to the public for services and special activities.


Weekly Affirmation:

 "Beloved God, I know that I am not the body, not the blood, not the energy, not the thoughts, not the mind, not the ego, not the astral self. I am the immortal soul that illumines them all, remaining unchangeable in spite of their changes.”
