June 29, Tuesday Class: What Does the Future Hold, and Why?
10:30am – 12:00pm Pacific Daylight Time

We instinctively long for peace in our society, yet we live in a time in history called Dwapara Yuga, the Age of Energy, according to the great master Sri Yukteswar. Dwapara Yuga always brings social upheaval. Yet it also brings tremendous opportunity for personal growth – more than any time in recorded history. While society faces confusion and uncertainty, we look to the wisdom of Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda to give us the clear vision and inner strength to move forward with calmness and purpose.

Storytelling with Murali: YouTube Premiere at 7:30pm:
Adi Shankara’s greatest debate: Is a life of virtue and faith enough to end pain and suffering?

Great Masters across the ages have said that in addition to a life of virtue and faith, something else is necessary.

Over a thousand years ago, along the banks of the holy Narmada river in India, a lowly housewife named Sharada Devi and her famous husband Mandana Mishra, challenged the great Adi Shankaracharya to answer this question. What ensues is a scintillating debate of epic proportions; the pious housewife, with the unfailing logic of a sinless life lived in humility and faith, brings Shankaracharya to the brink of defeat. Finding himself unqualified to answer her questions, Shankaracharya uses his formidable yogic powers to enter the body of a dead king to gain new experiences. Come join us to find out what happens next…and to find out the missing ingredient.
