Love alone will last. The laws of God are the laws of brotherhood and love.

— Paramhansa Yogananda

Chakras for Starters Book Cover

As part of the weekend, you will receive your own copy of Chakras for Starters by Savitri Simpson.

“To love those who love you is natural, but ego-inspired. To love those who do not love you, or who even hate you, is to express supernatural love, to see God in all.”— Paramhansa Yogananda
