Week of October 01  - October 07, 2018

"Truth is no theory, no speculative system of philosophy, no intellectual insight.  Truth is exact correspondence with reality.  For man, truth is unshakable knowledge of his real nature, his Self as soul."

Paramahansa Yogananda

• 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.

• As previously announced, Brother Muktananda and Br. Jeff from SRF Mother Center will be visiting our Houston Center in December to conduct the all-day Christmas Meditation. A detailed program will be finalized shortly.

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