    What a wonderful video, thank you!! It encapsulates the essence of ECKANKAR in the modern world so beautifully, showing all those amazing Masters so clearly. I was delighted to see all the groups of chelas throughout the world, including the campout in Australia, where I live. I was especially thrilled to see all the temples that exist in several countries at this time. I was at the 50th Anniversary celebrations, my first visit to the temple in Chanhassen, and this all brings back so many golden memories of that whole time. We are so fortunate to have all these blessings this lifetime! I am filled with gratitude.

    Ahhh Rodney! As I read on I was so inspired by your words as I prepare to facilitate a group on this same topic. I wasn’t surprised when I saw your name at the end! Often your words are poetry in action.

    Eckankar’s 50th anniversary celebrations had more than the celebrations for me. Though I wasn’t aware of it at the time, some weeks after my return to my little corner of the world, I realized an expansion in consciousness. I also realized that one has to win his consciousness everyday like the wise Christian clergy who remind their followers that they need to win heaven everyday because it is all too easy to fall out of grace.
    Kal takes it works seriously and is always at the gate waiting for a slip, a crack in the armour to slip in and diminish your consciousness everyday. Win your consciousness everyday. You will be happy you did.

    Thank God I am ECKist! Thank you Wah Z for the true teachings of the Light and Sound emanating through your writings on the outer and on the inner realities. For me it’s been awesome experiences being on this sane and balanced path to God. It’s the ECK (HOLY SPIRIT) that has chosen me, that has given me the spiritual staying power for the past thirty years! I’m most GRATEFUL for this unconditional love.

    Wonderful video. I really loved it. There were a lot of photos of Paul Twitchell and Sri Harold Klemp that I had never seen. It’s always funny to me to hear Paul’s voice, because his Kentucky accent is so familiar. (I live in southern Illinois, just across the river from Paul’s hometown of Paducah Kentucky, and our family used to travel there often to visit my great aunt Mary when I was a child.) On a sadder note, I remember spontaneously starting to cry when I read a notice in “Fate” magazine in 1971 that Paul had translated. I didn’t know why I was crying, because I had never even met the gentleman personally, but had only read a couple of his books. It felt, however, as though I had lost a close friend.

    A Happy 50th Anniversary to ECKANKAR

  15. Ruben Johnson says:

    God is Love… Like God, Love is what makes Eckankar special. Love binds each soul. Though most of us know it, not all of us will accept and/or practice Divine Love in our current life. Life is about giving and receiving Love. In Eck I have learnt to give Love in order to balance the Love that I receive unconditionally. I am grateful for making the right move in the 1970s and will not look back for anything. If you like freedom like I do, you will love Eckankar.

  16. Sammy says:

    For Sugmad (God) so loves Soul that it presents onto Soul, the Mahanta – the Living manifestation of Sugmad – and an embodiment of ECK (Holy Spirit) to guide Soul on its way back to the pure heavens. May the Blessings BE!
