Spiritual World Society - Sunday Morning Celebrations
Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 am for a spiritual celebration. Everyone is welcome.
(Click Here to read the Ideals of the Spiritual World Society)
Sri Ramakrishna, one of the great yogis of the last century, said that it is important to appreciate, not just tolerate people of all spiritual paths. Our spiritual service is a celebration of many different paths.
The celebration begins at 10 am with a spiritual talk and devotional chanting that goes until 11:15 am. You can leave then or stay for more chanting and a devotional service called Arati from 11:15 am 11:30 am.
The talks focus on the spiritual aspects of yoga as well as many different paths such as Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, etc.
People of all faiths come together and worship the form of God or Infinite Consciousness that is most precious to them. Members of the group, which calls itself the Spiritual World Society, pray and strive for goodwill between all people, nations, races and religions.
Sunday Morning Celebrations are a great way to infuse your week with spirit. Feel free to bring your kids to our Sunday School.
Sunday Celebration Schedule, Services starts at 10 a.m.
|July 23||Puja to Sri Sarada
Come on this Sunday to share in an Indian worship service as we celebrate the great yogini Sri Sarada Devi. Her life is a beautiful example of what a devotee looks like and the puja gives us an opportunity to experience her vibration.
The morning is filled with lots of beautiful chanting which is a natural doorway to higher states of yoga, especially to experience Bhakti Yoga, or devotional yoga.
Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.
