Week of Nov 25th - Dec 1st, 2013

"The interpenetration of man’s three bodies is expressed in many ways through his threefold nature. In the wakeful state on earth a human is conscious more or less of his three vehicles. When he is sensuously intent on tasting, smelling, touching, listening and seeing, he is working principally through his physical body. Visualizing or willing, he is working through his astral body.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

Please join us this Sunday, December 01 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “The Soul’s Three Encasements". The service is from 11 am to 12 noon. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is also held from 11 am to 12 noon. Parents with younger children may enjoy the service from the infant room located in the Sunday School building. The Reading Service is preceded by a meditation service from 10 to 10:45 am, and by group practice of the Self-Realization Fellowship Energization Exercises at 9:40 am.
