Meditation Series

This Seven Week Meditation Series will meet on
Wednesday Evenings

Beginning April 23

“Let us Meditate on the Glory of that Effulgent Reality
from Whom the Whole Universe is Projected.”

All who have represented and taught the noble meditation that we today call Kriya Yoga have unequivocally stated that the knowledge and the light, the technique and the practice have come to us through ALL religious traditions from time immemorial.
“Yoga is not a religion. It is the science of all religions. It acknowledges all religions, all faiths and all denominations as genuine means of attaining the one goal of spiritual life, which is the soul’s realization of the perfection of God. It accepts all spiritual experiences and tries to understand and interpret them in the light of truths which encompass as well as transcend the domain of sensory perception and mental apprehension. A Yogi is one who aspires to attain the ideal of Yoga by following the path of Yoga.
“Every devotee of God and truth is a Yogi. Avestans, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims and the followers of all faiths and all noble and sublime ideals are in truth and reality Yogis.  The sacred path of Yoga is within the total being of man – his body, mind, heart and soul.” (Swami Premananda)
This seven week Kriya Meditation Series is a time to recapitulate and elucidate the fundamental principles, practices, powers and purpose of yoga as the UNIVERSAL PATH TO GOD-REALIZATION.
