Our Devotee2Devotee Facebook Group is hosting our second group reading of “Mejda – The Family and the Early Life of Paramahansa Yogananda” by Sananda Lal Ghosh. From October 20th through November 11th, approximately one chapter a day will be read (22 chapters over 23 days). Please join us online on Facebook OR read on your own or with a group of devotees at home.
We invite you to post short quotes (2-3 sentences) from the text as well as add photos of India and Master’s family, friends, and teachers.Please keep ALL posts positive and uplifting — and directly pertaining to the “Mejda” material.
Soon after our “Mejda” reading, we will begin our annual reading of The Autobiography of a Yogi, so our discussion of Paramahansa Yogananda’s life will continue into early 2018.
Our group readings have been a blessing for many. Master is joyfully with us — guiding and blessing us! All sincere devotees of our Guru are welcome to join us.
We hope you enjoy our group reading event and pray that it inspires and blesses you! Jai Guru, dear friends! 🙂
