September is a month for the study of Jnana Yoga, a path to realization that requires analysis, discrimination, reason, and constant devotion to your goal. Your aim is liberation, freedom from all limitation.

Our scriptures and teachers tell us that life’s misery — its pain, anxiety, and sense of imprisonment — is caused by seeing inaccurately, due to “maya.” As a jnana yogi, you may set aside these mental habits of delusion and see only Brahman everywhere, in everything and everyone, including yourself. This is realization! 

September 1, Chandi Hymns (Sat)
9-10am – will be read in Sanskrit.

September 2 @ 11am-12pm (Sun)

September 5, New Wednesday Night Class begins
8-9pm – Swami Vivekananda’s Jnana Yoga

September 8 @ 10am-2pm (Sat)
SEVA SATURDAY
Seva means serving in the fellowship of volunteers or Karma Yogis. Please join us for gardening, cleaning, organizing, lunch, and lots of camaraderie. It's not necessary for you to stay the entire time... come and join us for as long as you can. Your Center is self-supporting and greatly depends on your participation to keep things running well. A delicious (free) lunch is served around noon. Please join us this month!

September 8, Chandi Hymns (Sat)
10-10:30am – will be read in English.

Talk: The Harmony of Religions - Patrick Horn
Seven generations and 125 years ago, at the first Parliament of Religions at the World’s Fair and Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Swami Vivekananda called for an end to sectarianism, bigotry, and violent fanaticism.

This November, the Parliament convenes again to honor indigenous peoples’ rights, empower women and youth, and lead environmental stewardship efforts.

“There have always been parties of men, philosophers, students of comparative religion, who have tried and are still trying to bring about harmony in the midst of all these jarring and discordant sects.” – Swami Vivekananda, THE WAY TO THE REALIZATION OF UNIVERSAL RELIGION

“To bring harmony into religion must always be difficult. Yet we shall consider this problem of the harmony of religions.” – Swami Vivekananda, THE IDEAL OF A UNIVERSAL RELIGION

This lecture includes an overview of the modern development of interfaith dialogue and cooperation, a report from the United Religions Initiative regional assembly and other recent events, and a forecast for the movement’s future.

Patrick Horn is an initiated disciple of Swami Swahananda, contributor to American Vedantist and Reading Religion, and a member of the Religion Communicators Council, Religion News Association, and American Academy of Religion.
