   Inspirational Reading:
   “It's understood that you are human, you don't have all the answers, and so you can't do everything for yourself.
   But you have to be willing to try. And if you try, with trust in the principle of love, which is Divine Spirit,
   then the forces of live converge to help you reach the purification you need to find meaning
   and understanding in the events of this life.

   Sri Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of Eckankar
   The Drumbeat of Time, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 10, Pg. 109

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
