Saints and Sages
The upcoming months between November and March are some of the richest in Spiritual Power that you will ever have the opportunity to experience.
For all of us will be celebrating the Gratitude of Thanksgiving, the Birth of Christ, the New Year, the Birthday of Paramhansa Yogananda and his Mahasamadhi as well as his Guru Sri Yukteshwarjis Mahasamadhi.
Because of these opportunities there may be less scheduled “Programs” in place, but there promises to be the greatest fulfillment in Celebrating these Spiritual Days and weeks ahead!
Be sure to contact our office for a personal seclusion during this time as well!
There is a misnomer that Saints and sages lived a long, very long time ago and that they do not or could not exist in this day and age. The picture to the right was taken in 1936, not so long ago. Sri Yukteswarji, Yoganandas Guru and Paramhansa Yoganandaji.

“A Saint is a sinner who never gave up” Yogananda was found to say often. Saints and sages are made of the same countenance that you and I are. The only difference is that their full attention and interest was and is in God and “God Alone!”
There are saints among us, even if they don’t recognize themselves to be so. We ourselves do not usually recognize the divine grace that flows through us to help others. It helps us immensely to be around those souls that have been living the Spiritual life for many years. They can and do uplift us and inspire us to know that we too can and should aspire to these heights These Saints do not come to show us how great they are, they come to show us how great we are potentially. That is to say God is in every single one of us and we simply need to allow Him/Her to express through these forms!
Blessings to you all!
We do hope to see you soon. Give yourself the opportunity to follow the footsteps of the Saints and Sages.
