Christ was resurrected not only on one Easter morn, but reanimates Himself in the dawn of each soul’s awakening.”

Paramhansa Yogananda

Easter is more than the holiday of orthodox Christians. It is a universal affirmation of God’s promise of immortality to the soul. Paramhansa Yogananda described the ego as “the soul identified with the body.” For how many lifetimes has our soul been hypnotised by the appearance of our separateness resulting from its confinement in the human body? The “truth” can make us free. Even one step by the “prodigal soul” towards God will bring light into our hearts and minds and strength for the soul’s journey home to the bliss of God. Let us, then, celebrate our own greater awakening.

Easter bunny is rumored to make an appearance and the traditional Ananda potluck banquet will surely follow!

Join us for this service celebrating Christ’s victory over delusion. Bring the whole family, children will have an opportunity to participate in the 1st half of the service, before joining the Sunday school teacher during the inspirational talk. With music, readings, and ceremony we will seek to attune ourselves with the living Christ Consciousness that is present in every soul. 

Easter Service integrates vocal and instrumental music from the acclaimed oratorio, Christ Lives, into the Festival of Light and into the musical segment. Our Service theme is the promise of immortality and spiritual resurrection through self-effort and divine grace, and, through the courage and wisdom to face life’s tests and trials with faith and equanimity

There will be an Easter egg hunt immediately following the service, and perhaps the Easter Bunny may even show up!

The Easter egg hunt is free – no need to register

All are invited to join us for an Vegetarian Potluck Easter Banquet at 11:30 am. Please call in to register for the Easter Banquet and sign up to bring your potluck dish. 425 806-3700.
