Week of Oct 21st - Oct 27th, 2013

"Cultivate the will to think of God during activity. It is extremely important that you make it a part of your daily life. Don’t follow this course a few days only and then forget about it. Follow it as best you can every day. Even if you slip back into old habits, keep on trying.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

Please join us this Sunday, October 27 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “Cultivate Your Desire for God". The service is from 11 am to 12 noon. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is also held from 11 am to 12 noon. Parents with younger children may enjoy the service from the infant room located in the Sunday School building. The Reading Service is preceded by a meditation service from 10 to 10:45 am, and by group practice of the Self-Realization Fellowship Energization Exercises at 9:40 am.

Weekly Affirmation:

“O Flower of Fragrance! Send Thy breath of love to cheer me always, as I climb the spheres of realization on my way to full Enlightenment.”

(Paramahansa Yogananda)

  • Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held next Saturday, November 2 starting at 9:00 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, we request that you please inform Frank by emailing him at n_sompa@yahoo.fr by next Wednesday, October 30. This will help us to organize head count for the lunch on the Day of Service.
