Leave your worries behind and join your peers in discovering positive ways of dealing with apprehensions so we can begin to explore and give new depth to our experience of aging and/or illness.
A frequently repeated theme in the Bhagavad Gita is the importance of preparing for death. Swami Kriyananda stated that, "Death is the 'final exam' and people should be readied for this exit into a better world, a better future and, if possible, liberation from earthly ties." In this class, we will explore some of the precepts he recommended through discussion, inquiry, and experiential interaction. Class will be fun and informative. Bring notebook/pen.
Babaji Commemoration Day
July 25, 7-8:30Join us for a night of chanting, prayers and a beautiful Flower Ceremony.
In this blessed day, many years ago, Babaji appeared before Paramahansa Yogananda at his Garpar Road home in Kolkata and said to him: "You are the one I have chosen to spread the message of Kriya Yoga in the West. Long ago I met your guru Yukteswar at a Kumbha Mela; I told him then I would send you to him for training."
