Hi All -
Ananda NYC had its first overnight retreat at Ananda RI for Guru Purnima last weekend. It was a weekend filled with amazing blessings, chanting, meditation, satsang, fellowship and FUN! See Pics Here. - We are having MORE satsangs in August! Plus, we have special guests coming in August including Jiavanna Skolnik, leader of Ananda RI, Kelly Doyle, leader of Ananda RI Sunday, and Avital Miller from Ananda Village. Mastan was adamant about starting weekly satsangs. So we’ll give it a shot. It will give people more options to attend, so if you miss one you won’t have to wait a month. We are even considering having one a month on a Friday with dinner afterward. Dates to come...
The affirmation for the week is: Be willing in everything you do. Willingness begets energy. As Yogananda said, “The greater the will, the greater the flow of energy.”
Next Satsang: Tuesday 7/30 at 7:00pm (earlier time!), address 237 E 26th St. Apt. 4E. The topic of the Satsang will be Step 5 of The Art & Science of Raja Yoga - The Niyamas (attached). There will be extra chanting :)
