Week of July 31  - August 06, 2017

“Long concentration on the liberating spiritual eye has enabled the yogi to destroy all delusions concerning matter and it's gravitational weight; he sees the universe as the Lord created it: an essentially undifferentiated mass of light."

             -Paramahansa Yogananda
