What Does ECKANKAR Teach?
ECKANKAR teaches simple spiritual exercises to experience the Light and Sound of God. These exercises also help us Soul Travel, to move into greater states of consciousness. A spiritual exercise can be as simple as relaxing and singing the word HU, an ancient name for God. As we practice these spiritual exercises, we learn to recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We learn that each of us is Soul, a spark of God sent to this world to gain spiritual experience. And as we unfold spiritually, we learn to express the love of God through service to others.
Karma and reincarnation are primary beliefs in ECKANKAR. We build up karma as a result of the spiritual Law of Cause and Effect. The ECK (Holy Spirit) helps us purify ourselves of karma (sin), making it possible for us to accept the full love of God in this lifetime. We gain wisdom, charity, and freedom.
Of all religions on earth today, ECKANKAR offers the most direct teachings on the Light and Sound of God. For people who experience these twin pillars of God, life becomes fresh and new again.
