Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 7:30pm

“The flame of pure-consciousness is eternally ignited within this body. By the meditation of Hong-Swa, all delusion having been dispelled, the Self is revealed in its effulgent glory. In the realization of oneness with Brahman, the Self, man transcends death. There is no path other than this to the attainment of immortality and bliss."

"Heart of the Mystic" - Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7:30pm

"To achieve silence is to touch the living heart of the universe. We are moved and drawn to a beauty beyond the intellect, a beauty we know only by our hearts' sublime responsiveness. We love the transporting experience of the ineffable and the sublime because it reaches the silence in us and takes us into the cosmic vibration."

Swami Kamalananda, The Mystic Cross

"Prana  Consciousness-Bearing Life Energy"

"All that exists, either as a form or in the formless state, is essentially life-substance.

Self-conscious, self-revealing, eternal and one is consciousness. The whole manifested universe is its form.

Creation follows the law of self-perfection. There are two ways of life; one is the path of the senses, and the other is the path of the Self.

Those who follow the path of the Self, aspiring to realize the Self by purity, faith and self-enlightenment, attain to the state of supreme illumination.

Those of sensory consciousness think that the self, the soul, is identified with the body. They live in the enjoyment of the senses, which is merely the reflection of the bliss of the Self.

Life is illumined by consciousness."

Prashna Upanishad, Translated by Swami Premananda
