Spanish Reading Service
Today directly following this service, we will have a reading service in Spanish from 12 – 1 p.m. All are welcome, and printouts will be provided with words to the prayers and chants.
SRF monastics Bro. Kalyanananda and Bro. Naradananda will be visiting Seattle this coming weekend for a Kriya Tour event which will include a public lecture, guided meditations, meditation technique reviews, and a Kriya Initiation Ceremony. This Thursday September 1, the 7 p.m. inspirational service here at the Center will be monastic-led. The remainder of the weekend’s events Fri – Sun will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Bellevue. As such, the Center here will be closed from Fri – Sun. Please visit our website srfseattlecenter.org for the full schedule. We hope you can all join us for a special weekend of absorption in our Guru’s Kriya Yoga teachings.
We still have 8.5 x 11 posters and smaller take-one flyers available in the social room to advertise the September 22 public lecture, which we invite you to take and hang up or hand out to spread the word about the event. In the week following the event, kindly remove any posters you have hung up.
Lahiri Mahasaya Services
The following week, we will have two commemorative services in honor of our Param-Param-Guru Lahiri Mahasaya. On Tuesday September 26 we will commemorate his mahasamadhi and on Saturday September 30 his birthday. On each of these occasions, the service will begin at 8 p.m. and will be preceded by a silent meditation from 7 – 7:45 p.m. During the meditation, ushers will allow late arrivals to enter silently. Please bring a flower and a monetary offering in an envelope.
The subject for today’s service is “Man’s Greatest Duty: To Remember God.”
