Community HU Songs

Discover a spiritual tool that can help you expand your awareness and live a happier, more contented life. The Community HU Song invites participants to sing the word “HU” which is an ancient, sacred name for God. A facilitator presents this simple technique, singing of the word HU, for approximately 20 minutes followed by up to five minutes of quiet contemplation. The Community HU is simply for the spiritual upliftment of those who attend and is not directed to any other purpose. Fellowship and light refreshments follow.

Inner Group HU Chant

The Master has given the following update:

Many chelas have asked to maintain a connection with the ECK community via an inner HU Chant, held on a specific day, and/or at a specific time.

Singing HU together in this way can bring a greater sense of community to all, since outer ECK events are limited at this time.

On Wednesday at 10 AM simply read the following quote (or your own if you prefer) and sing HU silently or out loud for 20 – 40 minutes and go into contemplation for 3-5 minutes.

The Strength to Meet Life
“Sing HU once or twice a day for 10 or 15 minutes to spiritualize your state of consciousness.
During the time your singing HU, you are saying to Divine Spirit, “I’ve opened myself to you. Give me the understanding and the wisdom to meet the waves of life, and the problems, troubles, and whatever else. Give me the strength to meet life.”
—Harold Klemp, The Sound of Soul, p. 34

Friends and family members can attend and participate in these Inner HU chants as long as they are familiar with the HU, and the format has been explained to them.

The ECKANKAR Spiritual Center has asked us to share experiences with this Inner Community HU. Please email your experience if you would like to share yours.

Letters of Light and Sound 2 @ VIRTUAL
Jul 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Letters of Light and Sound 2 @ VIRTUAL | Metuchen | New Jersey | United States

An ECK Satsang class to study Letters of Light & Sound 2 begins 3/3/2021. We will meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month for 12 months, from 7:30pm to 9pm. The class will remain open to join for three months.

An ECK Satsang class is an opportunity for members of Eckankar to enjoy group study of spiritual self-discovery courses written by the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. Sharing in the company of other truth seekers is a powerful way to accelerate spiritual growth and understanding. It can bring a deeper awareness of the Mahanta and your inner worlds, and help you in meeting the challenges of daily life. In the words of Sri Harold Klemp, “The ECK Satsang classes are the mainstay of the outer works of ECK.”

The class is open to current members of Eckankar who are now receiving or have previously received and studied the discourse. The lesson chapters, workbook pages, and audio clips are newly available online for study on the www.eckankar.org website.

Video Conference—This event will take place as a Zoom meeting at its regularly scheduled date and time. If you plan to attend for the first time, please call or email the above contact. The Arahata will email you the Zoom connection information shortly.
