Religion of the Light and Sound of God
Eckankar in Tennessee sponsors several Meetup groups around the state. They are all about open hearted sharing of spiritual experiences with people from all religious backgrounds and all walks of life. You will learn valuable tools to enhance your current path and spiritual exercises to explore your inner worlds. All are welcome.
People of all faiths are warmly invited to ECK Worship Services. Each service focuses on an aspect of Eckankar. They often feature a reading or video from the ECK works; singing HU, talks, music, and a group discussion of spiritual principles at work in daily life. The service lasts about an hour.
Join others seeking to bring more insight and divine love into their lives at this special celebration of the Light and Sound of God.
Activities Around the State
"The counterpart to the Light of God is the Sound of God. The sounds of nature mimic this Sound of God—birds or musical instruments; the sound of a train, a plane, rockets, or crickets; or some other sound like the high energy of a motor or an engine. Again, this is the action of the Voice of God working within you to leave you a little better, a little bit more purified spiritually than you were before the experience."
Harold Klemp, Love the Keystone of Life, page 34
“Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years in one form or another for inner attunement. In the same way a musician can use a tuning fork to find the right pitch, the person singing HU tunes in to a higher spiritual awareness.”
—Harold Klemp, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, page vii

ECK Worship Services
May Topic: The Voice of God
The May ECK Worship Service focuses on The Voice of God. We may be guided by the Holy Spirit in any number of ways. Sometimes it's a gentle nudge, or it may be an actual Inner Voice. In a video clip, Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar, tells the story of a Nigerian man who heard just such a voice and received protection from listening to the guidance. Please join us after the service for light refreshments and fellowship.

Try a Spiritual Exercise:
Sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths. With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced hue) as a song of love. You may notice a feeling of peace, warmth, and comfort. You may also recognize the presence of the Divine through greater spiritual insights into your daily life. ere are many ways to experience the love of God.
When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you might also perceive the inner Light and Sound. e Light may appear as brightness or colors on your inner visual screen. e Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. However you experience the presence of God, it is bringing you a broader understanding of the life you lead.
Join us to sing HU on Saturday, May 14, 5:00 - 5:30 p.m. in Room A.

"As you chant the name of God, with love, for twenty minutes a day, the bindings and bands that constrain Soul will begin to unwind. Not all at once, but very slowly, at a rate you can understand and accept. As these bindings are released, Soul rises in spiritual freedom.”
Spiritual Leader of Eckankar
