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.

Upcoming Community HU Songs
“The chanting of the HU in groups is very important. It binds our spiritual community together. It creates a purifying wave and carries away a lot of the petty things that an organization in an area might get into. There’s a great deal of purification that goes on at the HU Chant.”
—Sri Harold Klemp, A Modern Prophet Answers Your Key Questions about Life, Book 2, pp. 222-23

When seen from a spiritual perspective, dreams can provide access to the most sacred part of ourselves. Dreams can help us solve problems, open doors to healing, and provide insight for taking the next step in our lives.
Understanding and working with our inner life through dreams can help us see the connection to our daily life experiences. This in-person, interactive workshop explores ways we can unlock the healing and wisdom our dreams offer.
The purpose of a Satsang Intensive is to deeply explore a passage from the ECK works. It includes reading, reflection, sharing and discussion, and is intended to provide a spiritual setting for a connection to be made between the chela and the Inner Master. You can find additional information about the Satsang Intensive in the Members Area of the ECKANKAR website.
The quote for our Satsang on September 24 is:
For Solace, Peace, or Happiness
“All who become the channel for God will translate the ECK into the physical and spread peace for those concerned. Mind is the intermediate link between heaven and earth; therefore, it is good to use the mind as an instrument, allowing the spirituality of God to flow to all living creatures. Being an instrument of God, one asks not for solace, but only to give solace; one asks not for peace, but to give peace; and one asks not for happiness, but seeks only to give happiness.”
The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, p.22.
Sri Harold quotes this passage in Spiritual Exercises for The Shariyat Book One, p.18, and adds: “Close your eyes, gently sing HU, and let your heart fill with peace and quietude. Ask the Mahanta to show you an opportunity to give solace, peace, or happiness this day. It could be in even such small acts as cleaning up your environment or softening your voice in a time of stress.
This passage is an expression of the Living Word, given from the Master as a gift to you.
Video Conference—This event will take place as a Zoom meeting. The class is open to current members of Eckankar. 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.
“Tucked away in the hidden places of this book are clues as to how you too may reach the glories of God. Now, come with me on my journey.”
─Sri Harold Klemp, Autobiography of a Modern Prophet, p.16
All NJ ECK Chelas are welcome to join us in this Chela Book Discussion. Since it is a book discussion it will remain open to new attendees throughout the year.
We are exploring Sri Harold’s Autobiography of a Modern Prophet. In this highly personal book, Sri Harold shares with us some of the stepping stones along the way to his destiny to serve as the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. In the Forward he tells us, “This book is about God-Realization and the myths that surround the highest state of spiritual realization known to mankind.”
In reading about and discussing Sri Harold’s experiences, we hope to shed light on our own destinies in this lifetime, and on our experiences along the way. All of that is part of our discussion, along with our personal experiences with the Living ECK Master that we may feel are appropriate to share.
This class meets via Zoom on the 4th Monday of each month, beginning on October 24, from 5:30pm to 7.
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 and the chapters we will be discussing each month.
The book can be ordered for $9.95 plus shipping at the ECKANKAR Bookstore: https://www.eckbooks.org/items/-1-19.html. It is also available at other online bookstores.
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.
