Karma and Reincarnation

Saturday, May 23, 9:30 am to noon in Bothell

This workshop, based on the book by the same name by Paramhansa Yogananda, speaks from realized wisdom and experience, not mere philosophical speculation. Yogananda assures us of God’s love and goodness through all eternity.

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?
