Pilgrimage to Mother Center
We joyfully announce that San Diego Temple members and guests are invited to join in an all-day Pilgrimage to the Self-Realization Fellowship Mother Center in Los Angeles on June 10th . Those attending will be treated to tours of the grounds, a visit to the shrine of Paramahansa Yogananda, and opportunities to meditate in Master’s chapel. Light refreshments will be provided but plan on bringing a sack lunch as well.
Our temple is chartering a bus which is always a practical, reasonable, and enjoyable way to travel to SRF events. The bus tickets are available for purchase at the table upstairs on the upper patio, however there are only 19 remaining as 37 were sold last Sunday. Tickets will be available for sale until June 4th or until all are sold. If you plan to drive or carpool to this event, it is important to note that on the form at the bus ticket table as well so that those planning this special occasion can best prepare.
Young Adults Meeting
The San Diego Young Adults Meeting originally scheduled for today has been moved to next Sunday, June 4 th , from 12:30 to 3 p.m. in Room 3, just off the upstairs patio. The meeting will start with greetings, then a minister-led meditation followed by a spiritual discussion about the Joy of Service. We’ll close with fellowship and light refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there. The Young Adults Group aims to be a spiritual community where young adults can be supported in their spiritual journey as they establish meaningful connections with like-minded friends. The group has a pure focus on Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings and the path of SRF. We give a warm welcome and spiritual fellowship to those between the ages of 18 and 40.
