Developing Deeper Love for God

Nayaswami Devarshi

Led by Nayaswami Devarshi

2-day weekend

There are no dates currently scheduled.

Learn how to awaken within yourself the deep love for God that is seen in the saints of all religions. That intense craving and devotion is natural to everyone – we are born with it. All we have to do is re-awaken and cultivate it.

Devotion is also the most important quality on the spiritual path. Paramhansa Yogananda said that people with devotion will never fall spiritually, because that yearning, along with the receptivity to the help and grace of God, will always pick them up.

In this weekend you will fully appreciate how natural devotion is for each one of us. You will learn how to rediscover this love within yourself, awaken it, and keep that flame growing stronger and stronger throughout your life.

The weekend will include devotional exercises and practices you can use at home, as part of your everyday life. These practices will help you develop and deepen your personal relationship with God, in whatever form you worship God.

On Saturday evening there will be a kirtan (group devotional chanting), and guidance in making devotional chanting part of your daily practice. On Sunday, you can join the Ananda Community's Easter Sunday Service.

Finally, you will learn how to tune in to, and experience, God’s love for you. A Catholic Saint, St. Jean Vianney, said, “If you only knew how much God loves you, you would die of joy!” Knowing that love, and experiencing that joy, is your divine birthright.

Joining Devarshi in leading this weekend will be Nayaswami Maria.
