Pearls of Wisdom
9 April, 2008

Hari OM Beloved Sisters and Brothers in Yoga,

This week's inspirational message from
Sri Guruji Reverend Jaganath Carrera:
Facing Karma
"We have to face our karma, the reactions to our previous actions. Actions performed with selfishness and in ignorance, bring pain. Those done lovingly, selflessly, do not. While we may have to face the results of our past negative actions, we can reduce the pain by our faith, prayers, meditation, and dedicated service to others."
            - OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
OM Shanti


"Food should come to us as an offering of love. "
- Sri Swami Satchidanada Maharaj

Upcoming Programs
With Guruji
Volunteers Needed! 
YLS satsangs at the Freehold Yoga Center are enjoying a wonderful time of expansion.  More & more attendees are coming to savor the enlightenment of being with sangha & learning how Yoga applies to everyday life as Guruji expounds the secrets of living Yoga through his eloquent and always uplifting talks.The growth YLS is experiencing leaves us in need of volunteers for setting up for the satsang & cleaning up afterward.  Would you like to help?  If the answer is yes, there will be training sessions once a month within the next 3 months beginning with this Friday's YLS Satsang at FYC.  Set up trainings will occur at 5:30pm on the days of the FYC Satsangs.  These training sessions will also include instruction on book store operating procedures.  Pack up instruction will take place after the satsang is completed.  If you are interested in coming to the set up training, packing up training, or both, please contact Karuna at & Thank You!
