Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda: Karma & Reincarnation

Saturday, July 9 from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm at Ananda Meditation Temple

The teaching of reincarnation is the single-most important doctrine underlying the teachings of the east. It brings comfort, hope, and understanding to humankind. It has been validated by great saints and rishis down through the ages — including Jesus Christ!

In this workshop we will cover such vital subjects as:
• Why do we see a world of suffering and inequality?
• How should we handle the challenges in our lives?
• What happens at death? After death? Is there a heaven? Hell?
• What is evil and who is responsible for it?
