At many of our Meetups we have talked about the HU (http://www.eckankar.org/hu.html) and tried it briefly on a few occasions. There have been requests to practice chanting it as a contemplative exercise for a longer period of time. Now, if you are interested in having that experience, you can.
Sound can be used to uplift the spirit, and HU, a universal name for the divine, can help heal and bring a new perspective by shifting one's point of view above the daily mental and emotional turmoil. Used by many faiths and cultures throughout history, it can lead to a more direct connection with the core of Soul and the spiritual essence that sustains life.
Join open-hearted people in this non-denominational non-directed experience with this transformative sound
Bring a friend!
A free book on prayer, meditation and contemplation will be available. There will be light refreshments afterward.
HU is an ancient name for God. It's a love song to God... It represents the love of God for Soul. And we are Soul. It represents the enormous love that the Creator has for ITS creation.
- Harold Klemp
The Supreme Being has been called by various names in different languages, but the mystics have known Him as HU, the natural name, not-man-made, the only name of the Nameless, which all nature constantly proclaims.
- Hazrat Inayat Khan
When one is united to the core of another, to speak of that is to breathe the name HU, empty of self and filled with love. As the saying goes, The pot drips what is in it. The saffron spice of connecting, laughter. The onion-smell of separation, crying. Others have many things and people they love. This is not the way of Friend and friend.
By filling our world with the creative sound of HU, the unknown name of God, we will become a channel for divine spirit. When used properly, uttered aloud or silently, the creative Soul will enable our Soul to ride the divine vibrations through all the realms of time and space to our own glorious destination.
