Week of November 05  - November 11, 2018

 "You should first serve your family, then your friends, your country, and finally the world.  The light of God is evenly distributed to all men, though not all reflect it equally.  Learn to see God in all persons, of whatever race or religion.  When you feel that you are part of a United World - giving love and service to all men as Christ did- then you will feel Cosmic Love, which is God."

Paramahansa Yogananda

Weekly Affirmation:

Beloved God, purify the dross in me.  Banish disease and poverty from the world evermore.  Banish ignorance from the shores of men's souls.

• 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.
