The Temple Picnic continues! You are invited to enjoy delicious Baskin and Robbins ice cream on the patio after the service at the main Temple. Those attending the service at the J Street Chapel are welcome to join us.

We will celebrate the Mahasamadhi and birthday of Lahiri Mahasaya tomorrow, September 26 and Friday, September 30 respectively. Please note that each of these services will be conducted differently this year.

The Mahasamadhi service on September 26, beginning at 5 p.m., will be livestreamed from the main temple and have an in-person audience at both the Temple and the J Street Chapel. The doors will open at 4 p.m.

The birthday service on September 30 will begin at 7 p.m. and will be for an in-person audience only at both the Temple and the J Street Chapel. The Special Events Room at the Temple will be open for individual meditation from 6 – 6:30 p.m. It is customary to bring a flower and a donation in an envelope to the in-person services.

There will be a special 6-hour meditation with kirtan in honor of Lahiri Mahasaya on Saturday, October 1, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the J Street Chapel. This will replace the regularly scheduled Saturday morning 4-hour meditation. Please note that the J Street Chapel will be open for individual meditation from 2 – 4 p.m. on that day.

There will be a memorial service for longtime SRF devotee, Jan Kalish, at the main Temple on Saturday, October 1, at 2 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

And finally, there will be our annual Energization Exercises review by the minister for all meditation leaders at 12:30 p.m. in the Special Events Room today. Per Mother Center guidelines, it is important for all leaders to regularly have their practice checked.
