    The ECK discourses are written with a secret, internal rhythm that gradually unfolds your consciousness in a very precise and orderly manner.

    When you become a member of Eckankar, you receive a discourse series for your personal study. You study one lesson a month at home. If you like, you can also join an ECK Satsang class to share experiences, insights, and questions.

    The rhythmic meter of the Sound Current pulses through the pages of The ECK Satsang Discourses, First Series.

    A divine bond is between the Life Force and you. Put simply, you are developing a greater trust in the ECK, and It is able to manifest more surely in you.

    Emptied of borrowed thoughts, you find that the opinions of philosophers and wise men are no longer your own. Divine Spirit has opened you to the fount that overflows—to Soul, in Its full glory as a child of the Almighty.

    You are now ready to learn what it truly means to be an ECK chela.

  • "The Master 2 Discourses," Lesson 2

    July 9, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

    Online Zoom Event

    The ECK discourses are written with a secret, internal rhythm that gradually unfolds your consciousness in a very precise and orderly manner.

    When you become a member of Eckankar, you receive a discourse series for your personal study. You study one lesson a month at home. If you like, you can also join an ECK Satsang class to share experiences, insights, and questions.

    The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, says: “The true gospel of ECK is to give every chela Truth. This truth is to lift him into the worlds of Light and Sound: the Kingdom of the Sugmad.”

    This sets the pace for The Master 2 Discourses. With each lesson comes a monthly spiritual exercise that unfolds a new dimension within you.

    A good teacher encourages his students to be self-sufficient. A student may hunt for years before he finally learns that it is impossible to graduate from learning or experience. A teacher may offer guidelines to living, but the student must himself accept the responsibility for getting an edge on his own life.

    This is a new opportunity for unfoldment in ECK. If you have watched, you no doubt have seen how carefully the Mahanta has moved you into a more spacious universe of being.

    In the past your attention was dedicated to what you might learn about yourself. Suddenly, the emphasis is changed. Now you wish to determine the real cause that forms the foundation of superficial causes. In other words, rather than wanting to know mainly about yourself, you now wish to discover the wholeness of life.

    Perhaps you did not notice that your awareness has taken on wings and soared from a personal to a more universal point of view. This is the detached state. Rather than more apart from life, we are closer to it.

  • “The Easy Way Discourses,” Lesson 10

    July 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    Online Zoom Event

    For further information, contact your Arahata.

    The ECK discourses are written with a secret, internal rhythm that gradually unfolds your consciousness in a very precise and orderly manner.

    When you become a member of Eckankar, you receive a discourse series for your personal study. You study one lesson a month at home. If you like, you can also join an ECK Satsang class to share experiences, insights, and questions.

    The purpose of Satsang is to help you find your own relationship with Divine Spirit. Satsang is a spiritual forum for ECK members to explore the wisdom of the ECK discourses together. Led by a trained teacher (Arahata), classes meet monthly for an hour to an hour and a half reviewing a lesson you've read at home.

    Pay close attention to the gentle rhythm in The Easy Way Discourses, for it carries the secret melody of divine love, wisdom, and understanding. God is love. There is no higher truth than that. However, few people ever find it because of a fear of giving up old ideas and habits, even though they are the cause of most misery and anxiety in life.

    A new world awaits you. Be willing to put a little time, effort, and a lot of heart in the ECK teachings. That is the only way to gain a rich appreciation of the hidden life of Divine Spirit.

    You are now ready to start the road to spiritual freedom.

  • "The Precepts of ECKANKAR," Lesson 12

    July 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Online Zoom Event

    For further information, contact your Arahata.

    The ECK discourses are written with a secret, internal rhythm that gradually unfolds your consciousness in a very precise and orderly manner.

    When you become a member of Eckankar, you receive a discourse series for your personal study. You study one lesson a month at home. If you like, you can also join an ECK Satsang class to share experiences, insights, and questions.

    The Precepts
    go into the doctrine of "The Seven Levels of Soul," where Soul desires to enter conditions It can control in the mental, emotional, and physical states. With a measure of discipline, the deepest spiritual lessons begin to be reflected in the daily life of the student. He finds the invisible realm of God is not unreachable; its events are being played out in his daily affairs—if  he is watchful and knows where to look. With this next year of study, much of the student's remaining past-life karma begins to swiftly resolve itself.

    In time, you will see the eyes of the Mahanta shining in every living being. This is the moment of enlightenment that erases all fear and superstition. From then on, we are the children of God in spirit and in love.
