“You should know how to rejuvenate the body not only through proper diet, but through cosmic energy, by developing will power.  You can bring energy into the body by will power.  Each one of you can rejuvenate yourself."

• 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. These meditations are an excellent way to prepare for our upcoming all day Christmas meditation on Saturday, December 16.

 

• Please join us this and every Sunday after the services for our weekly juice social in the Sunday School building.
