• The commemoration service of Mahavatar Babaji will be held in the chapel this Wednesday, July 25 from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The service will be preceded by an open meditation from 7:00 pm to 7:50 pm and you may enter the chapel quietly at any time. All devotees who are acquainted with the SRF teachings and the Guru-disciple relationship are welcome to attend. Devotees are asked to bring a flower or flowers as a symbol of devotion to God and the SRF Gurus, and a donation, if possible, as sign of loyalty to the path of SRF. These donations are sent to the Mother Center to share these sacred teachings with other truth-seeking souls. Please write your checks to the order of Self-Realization Fellowship.

• Our monthly all-day meditation retreat will be held next Saturday, July 28. This month we will have an open, 12 hour non-conducted meditation from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. You are welcome to join us at any time but we ask that you sign in when you arrive and that you enter and exit the chapel quietly.

• Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held on Saturday, August 4. 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 Sudha by emailing him at vasudhaven@yahoo.com as this will help us to organize head count for the lunch on the Day of Service. You can also RSVP by filling out the sign-up sheet located in the chapel foyer.
