Week of June 01 - June 07, 2015

“Do not expect to be successful in all your attempts the first time. Some ventures may fail, but others may be successful. Success and failure are interrelated. One cannot exist without the other. You should approach your nearest problem or duty with concentrated energy and do your utmost to bring to pass whatever is needed.” 

 - Paramahansa Yogananda

• Guruji said that “Group Meditation is a castle that protects the new spiritual aspirants as well as the veteran meditators. Meditating together increases the degree of Self-realization of each member of the group by the law of invisible vibratory exchange of group magnetism.”  Our Center hosts group meditations every Thursday night from 7:30 to 9:30 PM and from 7:00 to 10:00 PM on the first Thursday of the month. Meditations last about 45 minutes, along with a reading and chants. Devotees may enter or leave the service quietly at any time. We hope that you are able to attend.
