Week of June 12  - June 18, 2017

“Conquer pride by humility, wrath by love, excitement by calmness, selfishness by unselfishness, evil by good, ignorance by knowledge, and restlessness by the ineffable peace acquired in the stillness of complete silence. Find satisfaction in being humble, realizing that God is the sole Doer."

 

             -Paramahansa Yogananda

Weekly Affirmation:

No one is greater than Thee, O my Father!  All my powers are but borrowed powers from Thee.  I would cease to live and express without Thy wisdom and strength.

• 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.
