Ananda Meditation Group of Lake Forest

God is for Everyone (inspired by PARAMHANSA YOGANANDA)

as taught to and understood by his disciple Swami Kriyananda

   "It was the divine consciousness that brought all beings and all things into manifestation.  To manifest something is not the same as to create it.  God did not mold us from the outside, like works of sculpture.  He became us, as we ourselves "become" our dreams, which seem to have an existence of their own, but are really just the form taken on by a part of our consciousness.  When that consciousness is withdrawn, they simply cease to exist.  A physical analogy would be the way a seed grows to become a tree, starting from the center, then growing outward.  Before God manifested the universe, only He existed: timeless, spaceless, Conscious Bliss.  He is the essence of everything in existence.   We ourselves are pure bliss."

 

  Join us each Thursday evening in a step toward understanding these truths.  Our meditation group is non-sectarian. All faiths are welcome.  You need not have prior experience meditating as you will be shown pranayam and mantra.  Chanting, as Yogananda stated "is half the battle."  So experience chants spiritualized by the Master to take you into the peace of meditation.

Joy to you

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
