Week of June 26  - July 02, 2017

“When you can see "behind the scenes" you will realize that life on earth is a puppet show.  It seems real to us now, but what we are experiencing at this moment will have a dreamlike unreality to us a few years hence."


             -Paramahansa Yogananda

• Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held this Saturday, July 01 starting at 8:30 am. We dedicate only one day a month to the care and upkeep of Master’s sanctuary in Houston so that it remains a magnet for those seeking to meditate together or to learn of Self-Realization Fellowship for the first time. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by filling out the sign-up sheet located in the chapel foyer as this will help us to organize head count for lunch on the Day of Service.


• This Sunday, July 2, there will be a meeting of the Teen Group from 11 am - Noon in the Morgan Building. Teens aged 13-18 are welcome to attend.


• Our next Harmonium Workshop will be held next Sunday, July 9 in the chapel. This workshop is open to all members and friends who are interested in either joining the Kirtan Group or would simply like to learn how to play the SRF cosmic chants on the harmonium. If you own a personal harmonium, we request that you please bring it with you to the workshop. If you have any questions about the workshop, or do not have a harmonium of your own, you may contact Arjun (arjunraghuraman@gmail.com) or Jahnavi.
