Thank you, Sri Harold, from the bottom of my heart for bringing me into Eckankar. I had known vaguely about Eckankar but was busy with my spiritual path little knowing I would end my search in Eckankar.
About seven years ago I was spending a lot of time on my couch asking for direction. I was not in good shape, with many ailments and much pain. One day, I turned the TV on to the community channel and heard the sound of HU. Then you came on and started to speak. I was bewildered. You were telling what I thought was a very simple story. But then I noticed your eyes looking deeply into mine and love started to pour into me right from the television. I was astonished. I started to laugh and cry and to shut my eyes tightly against all that love but kept opening them to receive more of that astonishing love which I had never experienced. Later, somebody told me I had received the Darshan which I had never heard of. Read More

My journey in ECK started three and a half years ago.
I had been looking for a way out of the church because I needed a real connection with the Holy Spirit. On January 1, 2010, I decided that I will spend the day in prayer until I enter in contact with the Holy Spirit.
As I was praying I was also singing Holy Spirit hymns and songs. That day something special happened but I did not realize it until almost the end of the year when I met my future husband who gave me an ECK book The Call of Soul and a HU song CD.

Sri Harold Klemp, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master writes, in the book Youth Ask a Modern Prophet about Life, Love, and God, “Soul can go in one of three ways in any stage of Its spiritual unfoldment. It can move forward, backward, or stand still.”
Have you ever had a hot cup of tea and, with each sip, felt its warmth expand within your chest? That is exactly the same warmth I felt as I read this quote. It resonated within me. I believe the reason is that I recently found myself at a crossroads regarding my own spiritual unfoldment.
When I was younger, I was disciplined with my spiritual exercises, succeeded at school, and had my future planned out. Then things shifted. Read More
An ECK Satsang class is a gathering of ECK members who choose to come together once or twice a month to further their spiritual understanding through study of the ECK discourses. In studying the ECK discourses, an ECK Satsang class revolves around the rhythm of the Living Word.
This rhythm is important because it is the Life Force, the ECK. The words of the outer teachings are instruments of the Mahanta to help unlock your heart so you can enter into the secret kingdom. To the eyes of the world it may all seem foolishness, yet the gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to those who cherish them enough to reach out for them. Read More
