"JAYA GURU DEVI - Devi is a Sanskrit word meaning Mother Goddess, Divine Energy. The ever-expanding expression of the Absolute is called Devi, the cosmic energy. All yoga practice (sadhana) culminates in awakening this energy (kundalini) for the purpose of realizing a higher state of consciousness. In the eternal dance of energy (Shakti) and consciousness (Shiva), this sacred energy awakens and consciousness expands. One begins to flow from the heart, living by higher knowledge, filled with blissful joy" -Kaliji

 Next 3rd Saturday Matri Satsang

Saturday, May 19th, 2018 from 7- 9pm

Center for Spiritual Living Greater Dayton

4100 Benfield Dr in Kettering

Jai Ma! In satsang, we meet to invoke and learn about the blissful Indian saint, Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982) Ma's consciousness was completely merged with the Divine (Parabrahman), the state of non-duality which manifests in each of us as our True Self (Atman). Ma is Laurel's guru with whom Laurel spent most of three years in India between 1977 until Ma's mahasamadhi in 1982. We will chant, meditate, hear stories, and contemplate Ma's words and teachings. Satsang means "gathering in truth". Matri means "mother". Come share the joy!  $5 donation appreciated.
