Cancellation of all services
The health and safety of everyone joining our services is the priority for the Toronto Centre. We have been closely monitoring the developments around COVID-19, taking guidance from the Centre Department and the Public Health Agency of Canada. To minimize the risk of spreading the virus amongst devotees in our community, and with an abundance of caution, we are cancelling all Toronto Centre activities, meetings, socials and services until further notice. This includes all meditation and reading services (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) and Sunday Schools.
Paramahansa Yogananda expected us to use practical outer means and commonsense methods to prevent illness, but he also urged us to have a positive attitude and faith in God’s love and protection. That inner attunement felt in meditation and prayer will allow us to reach into the infinite reservoir of God’s healing power to help ourselves and all those who are in need.
In closing, let us keep in mind these words of our Gurudeva: “Whatever it is that you fear, take your mind away from it and leave it to God. Have faith in Him…Every night, before you sleep, affirm: ‘The Heavenly Father is with me; I am protected.’ Mentally surround yourself with Spirit and His cosmic energy.”
In Divine Friendship,
