Dear friends!

What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, spiritual conversation, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, refreshments shared with smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers and inspiration with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.

Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation “Teach us Thy Oneness”

This Sunday, January 12th, 2014, I invite you and your loves ones to an Interfaith Prayer Station and a Spiritual Conversation in Arlington on the theme “Teach us Thy Oneness”. We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings and Prayers. I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayers or inspiring writings. In addition to Holy Words, we shall uplift and refresh our souls with inspiring musical selections and we’ll conclude with tea and sweets.

Devoted- with a heart grown pure, restrained
In lordly self-control, forgoing wiles
Of song and senses, freed from love and hate,
Dwelling ‘mid solitudes, in diet spare,
With body, speech, and will tamed to obey,
Ever to holy meditation vowed,
From passions liberate, quit of the Self,
Of arrogance, impatience, anger, pride;
Freed from surroundings, quiet, lacking nought-
Such an one grows to oneness with the BRAHM;
Such an one, growing one with BRAHM, serene,
Sorrows no more, desires no more; his soul,
Equally loving all that lives, loves well
Me, Who have made them, and attains to Me.

(Hindu, Bhagavad Gita)

We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please contact me.  Please let me know if you plan on coming so I can plan the refreshments!

In your service,

Mitko
