 “Meditate with good companions. They will help you to churn the butter of Self-realization from the milk of your mind. Milk mixes with the waters of worldly delusion and cannot float above them. Butter readily floats on those treacherous water.”

--Swami Sri Yukteswar in “Seeking God Together

The Fabric of the Cosmos Series

Saturdays: June 9th, July 14th, August 11th, & September 8th

7:30–8:45 PM at Fellowship Hall, Atlanta Center of SRF

Summer Video Series
Description: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/assets/img/posters/fabric-of-cosmos-vi.jpg
"The Fabric of the Cosmos," a four-hour series based on the book by renowned physicist and author Brian Greene, takes us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize—a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.  Brian Greene is going to let you in on a secret: We've all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong.

Science and Religion Program Series Began in Spring 2003

Series Introduction: 

“Marvelous indeed is the Lord’s universe.  Within it He is working all His wonders of creation.  Do not be a walking “dead man” in this world; observe, analyze, and appreciate what God and his agent, man Have wrought here.  How intricate is the universal mechanism!  Reflect on the way we are made, and in what orderly fashion the whole machinery of creation runs according to cosmic law.” (pp.251, Man’s Eternal Quest)

With this quote from Paramahansa Yogananda encourages the exploration and discovery of the Lord’s Infinite creation.  This series sets out to show how modern science and the essence of religion are increasingly in harmony.  We hope in this program and future programs to awaken a greater appreciation and understanding of the contributions that modern science is making, and how it relates to the path of inner discovery and awakening of each soul.  To reveal the astounding relative reality in which we live and have our being.

                             “Fractals: The Colors of Infinity”

A program aired under the PBS television series “NOVA”, this video is hosted by Sir Arthur Clarke and gives an overview of the subject of fractals.  This program gives an entertaining and informative presentation of what some call “the thumbprint of God.”

Some Quotes from Paramahansa Yogananda:

Life Is a Matrix of Consciousness

 “We are made of the matrix of consciousness.  All life was spumed out of the one Source of the river of consciousness.  Your individual consciousness is thus the very foundation of your existence.  All of your thoughts and actions are bubbles and droplets of the river of consciousness.

The seemingly solid body is actually a mass of electromagnetic currents.  Its electrons and protons are condensations of the relative positive and negative creative thoughts projected by God, which I call thoughtrons.  All creation derives from these thoughtrons, the consciousness of God.

… In the ultimate sense, then, all things are made of pure consciousness, their finite appearance is the result of the relativity of consciousness.  Therefore, if you want to change anything in yourself, you must change the process of thought that occasions the materialization of consciousness into different forms of matter and action.  That is the way, the only way, to remold your life.”  (pp. 18-19, Journey To Self-Realization)

The Talk “The Infinite Nature of God” (pp. 21-31, Man’s Eternal Quest)

Other Bhagavad Gita references on the subject of light and the structure of reality:

(pp. 40 n., 368 n., 571 n., 634, 937, 941-946, 945 n., - 946 n.)

"The Great Year" Video Presentation

 

The Great Year explores the possibility that the fall of ancient civilizations around the globe, and the rise of modern civilization, might be related to our Sun’s motion around a companion star. The film examines evidence that ancient civilizations may have known of this celestial cycle and that our Sun may indeed display the characteristics of binary motion.

Featuring John Anthony West, Brother Achelananda, Werner Dappen, Uwe Homann, and more....

Held on Saturday, September 13th 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Over 40 Guests attended this showing and Brother Achalanda

attended and gave his comments after the presentation.
