Week of March 13  - March 19, 2017

“Learn to see God in all persons, of whatever race or creed.  When you begin to feel your oneness with every human being, you will know what divine love is; not before.  In mutual service we forget the little self, and glimpse the one measureless Self, the Spirit that unifies all men.”

 

-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.
