saying about the real difference Eckankar made in their
Practicing the Spiritual Exercises of Eckankar
has shown me how we are all connected, all on the
same journey but taking different paths. I have developed
a deep love for every living thing on this planet,
and a compassion for my fellow man that I never knew
before Eckankar. Looking back to when I first started
on this path, I can honestly say that I am not the
same person—and I love how it's changed me.
— Bess M., San Diego
My everyday life is so much better
since being in ECK. I'm becoming the person I
always wanted to be! Obstacles to happiness are
falling away. I feel free inside! Every second
is an adventure, an opportunity. I can choose
my state of consciousness!
— Alan P., Los Angeles
I'm never bored—never a dull
moment. Being in ECK fills the gap. When someone
says how bored they are, I say, 'Study Eckankar.'
We are always growing. That's just so exciting!
I love growth!
— Virginia K., San Diego
Eckankar has made my life worth living.
I've had experiences with Spirit that I used to read
about in sacred literature. My dreams guide me, and
I see Divine Spirit working with me in my daily life.
I finally can feel divine love in my heart.
— Mark A., Redwood City

of us with the heart of God. We can experience the

the Light and Sound of God as It touches our lives
and brings increased divine love.

Sing HU at Home
You are invited to try this simple spiritual exercise.
It has helped people of many different faiths open
their hearts more fully to the uplifting presence
To do the exercise, first get comfortable. Close your
eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Next, gently put
your attention on your inner visual screen, where
daydreams and images come to you.
With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced like the
word hue) as a song of love. There are many ways
to experience the love of God. 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.
When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you
might also perceive the inner Light and Sound. The
Light may appear as brightness or colors on your
inner visual screen. The 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

exercise, a newly released audio CD entitled HU:
