“May Thy love shine forever on the sanctuary of my devotion, and may I be able to awaken Thy Love in all hearts.” - Paramahansa Yogananda
As Paramahansa Yogananda has said,
“Group Meditation is a castle that protects the new spiritual aspirants as well as the veteran meditators. Meditating together increases the degree of Self-realization of each member of the group by the law of invisible vibratory exchange of group magnetism.”
