       “In order to be a thoroughly successful father, you should devote considerable time to deep concentration and meditation.  You should be a man who can dive deeply into problems and come out with the pearls of right solutions.’’                                             

                                                      - Paramahansa Yogananda

Announcements:

 

• Our next meeting of the Bhagavad Gita Study Group will be held in the chapel this Sunday, June 19 at 12:30pm. This group is open to all members and friends who wish to read and meditate upon Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita – God Talks with Arjuna. We hope that you are able to attend.


• Our monthly meditation retreat is scheduled for Saturday, June 25 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. All are welcome to attend at any time during the day, but we ask that you enter or exit the chapel only during chants or readings.  The SRF Energization Exercises will be conducted as a group at 9:00 am.


• 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.


• Please join us this and every Sunday after the services for our weekly juice social in the Sunday School building.
