Eckankar Center of Olympia, 509 12th Avenue, Suite 5, Olympia, WA  98501

Welcome to the Olympia Eckankar, the Religion of the Light and Sound of God.  The teachings of ECK define the nature of Soul more carefully than other religions do.  Each person is Soul, a particle of God sent into the lower worlds (including earth) to gain spiritual experience.  Purified by the spiritual exercises, he comes into contact with the Holy Spirit.  His goal is spiritual freedom in this lifetime, after which he becomes a Co-worker with God, both here and in the next world.  Karma and reincarnation are primary beliefs.

The key to the ECK teachings is the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master.  He has the ability to act as both Inner and Outer Master for the ECK students.  He is the prophet of Eckankar, given respect but not worship.  He teaches the sacred name of God, HU, which lifts one spiritually into the Light and Sound of God, the ECK.

The ECK (The Holy Spirit) purifies one of karma (sin), making it possible for him to accept the full love of God in this lifetime.  Then he gains wisdom, charity, and freedom.

Personal experience with the Light and Sound of God is the cornerstone of Eckankar.  Of all the religions on earth today, Eckankar offers the most direct teachings on the Light and Sound of God.  These twin pillars are missing in whole or in part from the rest.  People who truly find these two aspects of God undergo a complete spiritual change.  Life becomes fresh and new again, as it was in early childhood.
