   No matter what we are faced with, Soul must
   eventually come to the point where It says,
   “I know there is a way. I may not know at this
   moment what it is, but there is always a way.”
   When this surrender to the Mahanta (Inner
   Master, spiritual guide) occurs, the door will
   open wider, allowing enough love in to let you
   meet the obstacle or challenge at hand.

Sri Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, Mahanta Transcripts Book 6, Pg. 80

Statewide Community HU Songs

What is the Community HU Song - You have the potential for greater happiness, love, and understanding. Singing HU can bring these to you—through the Light and Sound of God.
Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier and more secure in God’s love.
You are invited to join us at any of the following Community HU songs to experience this love song to God.
Spiritual Importance of the HU Song: It is a love song to God that brings harmony with life.
Length of Time: About 20-30 minutes

The public is always invited! Please come, and bring a friend!
