When the sparks of creation first flew from Thy bosom of flame, I sang in the chorus of astral lights that heralded the coming of the worlds.  I am an immortal spark of Thy cosmic fire.

• 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. We hope that you are able to attend.


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