Week of Sep 2nd-Sep 8th, 2013

"Do not think that someone else can give you salvation. All the great saints have told us that we shall have to work to communicate with God. Keep one thought in your mind – God; then pray often and earnestly and see what a spiritual change comes over you!”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

Please join us this Sunday, September 08 for our weekly Service Reading entitled What Is Salvation?". The service is from 11 am to 12 noon. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is also held 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.

Weekly Affirmation:

“O blazing Light! awaken my heart, awaken my soul, ignite my darkness, tear the veil of silence, and fill my temple with Thy glory.” 

(Metaphysical Meditations)


  • Our next Day of Service and Fellowship is this Saturday, September 7. Due to the rising temperatures and the summer heat, we are starting earlier at 7:30 am and we will also plan on ending the outside work sooner. If you are planning to attend, we request that you please inform Sudha (vasudhaven@yahoo.com) as this will help us organize the head count for lunch.
  • Self-Realization Fellowship will be conducting a Lecture Tour in Dallas from Friday, October 25 to Sunday, October 27 at the Hilton Garden Inn – Dallas Fort Worth Airport South in Irving, TX. More details about this Lecture Tour are available at their website - http://srfdallasfortworth.org/srf-monastics-lecture-tour/.
  • All activities and events organized by the Houston Center are carried out by dedicated members and friends and we always welcome new volunteers. We especially need help for housekeeping, social events, playing the harmonium, and ushering. If you have a few hours to spare each month and would like to volunteer, please let us know by contacting a member of the Managing Team after services.
  • Please join us this and every Sunday after the services for our weekly juice social in the Sunday School building.
