Retreats and Tours
The SRF Meditation Circle of Tirgu-Mures, Romania
The SRF Meditation Circle of Tirgu-Mures, Romania gladly invites all devotees who live in this area (South-East Europe), devotees in the USA, and all over the world.
For details, please contact Sorin Samarghitan, at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Theoretically, the retreat is planned to be conducted in Romanian but, if needed, it can be conducted in English as well.
2. Unfortunately, we won't have monks at the retreat
We'll have the daily spiritual practice (EE and Meditation) twice a day, watch DVDs / listen to CDs in the evenings, have 1-2 days of total silence and a one-day trip to one of the highly spiritualized mountainous areas in this part of the world - the Sphinx in the Carpathians.
Meditation Group Notice
Prescott Meditation Circle
Some Prescott AZ devotees are putting together a small anthology of stories about Master for a little booklet to be given away at Brother’s annual visit in October, also to have something on hand to give to new devotees, and we’d like to invite you to send us your stories. These would be stories in which Paramahansa Yogananda guided us, protected us or blessed us in some special way.
If you’d like to help, please put your story in writing--1,000 words
or less in Word format--and e-mail it to: touchedbytheGuru@gmail.com
Please include your name, phone number, and state or country. Plans are to attribute authorship of the stories by using initials and state or country name; e.g. C.A., Arizona, or if you prefer, a nom de plume of your choosing, e.g. Master’s straightman. We'd like to keep it somewhat anonymous because the stories are first and foremost about the Guru--His Divine qualities of love, compassion, wisdom, and in many cases Divine humor.
Thanks so much for your contributions! We look forward to hearing some undoubtedly amazing stories.

OM Love in the Sky Above Mother Center
The above photo was taken on Thursday of Convocation, 2004. Devotees, many whom have served all week, serve to take down the tents, move chairs and other activities at Mother Center after the pilgrimages end. After the activities were completed, there was a service in the chapel. After the service, as devotees were leaving, this appeared in the sky. It was also above the Bonaventure. Originally it said "MOM" with a heart. Mom... Divine Mother, Sri Daya Mata... our own mothers... all mothers...
