HU, the Most Beautiful Prayer

By Daisny, Mauritius

When I became a member of Eckankar, I learned about singing HU, the ancient name for God.

Sung as a love song to God, HU is a beautiful prayer that draws Soul closer to God. It uplifted me, and I decided to share it with my father, who was a devoted member of the Catholic Church.

My father enjoyed the HU and began to sing it every morning. Over time, his awareness of the invisible spiritual worlds expanded. Occasionally, he shared his experiences with me. I could see that the ECK, or Holy Spirit, was an important part of Dad’s life.

Three years later, my father had a stroke which left him paralyzed and unable to speak. I was very sad and went to visit him every day. Read More


A Balancing of Accounts

By Emmanuel, Nigeria

All my life, I constantly felt cheated and wondered why. The recurring experiences of people taking advantage of me were too many to count. I had almost resigned myself to the situation.

One day, after another loss, I vowed to find a solution to these problems by turning the situation over to the Mahanta, the Inner Master.

“Why is this happening?” I asked inwardly.

As a member of Eckankar, I’d learned that life is a series of births, deaths, and rebirths. I wondered if a karmic root from the past might offer an explanation. I decided to set aside some time and do a spiritual exercise to look at my past lives.

Before bed one night, I sang HU, the holy name for God. Singing HU allows me to hear more clearly the ECK, the Voice of God. I invited the Mahanta, also known as the Dream Master, to show me if a past life was the cause of my problems today. Read More


Spiritual Exercise: The Purifying Sound

ECKANKAR, HU, Holy Spirity, Sound, Spiritual EyeBy Harold Klemp

Close your eyes and look to the Spiritual Eye.  Sing HU, an old and secret name for God.  It is one of the most powerful words for spiritual upliftment that I can give you.

As you sing HU, listen for the Sound.  The Sound may be heard in any number of different ways.  It can be like the sound of a train going by, a bird, buzzing bees, sometimes a flute, or even guitars.  The way you hear It just depends on where you are.

These sounds are the action of the Holy Spirit, the ECK, as Its atoms vibrate in the invisible worlds.  The Sound you hear is the vibration at the particular level to which you are attuned at the time.

Imagine the Sound purifying you, removing the impurities of Soul.  It will bring you an understanding of how your actions have caused your problems.  It will also give you an indication of what you can do to unfold and how to figure out the way to do things right.

Llamas Offer a Lesson in Divine Protection

ECKANKAR, Holy Spirit, GodBy Harold Klemp

A man and his wife owned a farm in the eastern part of the United States.  They had llamas and sheep, and outside the fence they had coyotes.

The coyotes spent their time trying to figure out if it was worth it to go inside the fence to get the sheep.  But inside the fence was also where the llamas were.  And llamas are very protective of sheep.

A llama has a very peculiar warning cry.  It sounds like a siren.  The first time the man heard this siren sound, he had no idea what was going on.  He ran outside, prepared for just about anything.

It was the llama sending a warning to a coyote or some other animal that was thinking about coming after the flock of sheep.

You have to consider that Divine Spirit, the Holy Spirit, watches out for each of you, for your safety and spiritual well-being, with as much care as a llama looks after the sheep in its care.

The Holy Spirit, or the ECK, is a wave which comes from God made up of both the Light and the Sound.  It is the Voice of God, the Sound Current.

It speaks to us in different ways.  Sometimes it’s through intuition, sometimes through a messenger speaking for the spiritual hierarchy, like a guardian angel.  It also speaks to us through dreams.

Llamas are interesting, and the Holy Spirit is interesting too.
