Imagine every difficulty, every desire, every attachment soaring up and away from you like a balloon, growing smaller with distance until it disappears.

As a child in Los Angeles, Nayaswami Dhyana, Ananda Sangha’s Spiritual Director in Gurgaon, attended church every Sunday with her mother.   African American congregations are noted for their exuberance and lively spirit and her church was no exception.  Dhyanaji once laughingly commented upon her minister’s Sunday discourse on the oft-quoted Biblical verse, “Be still and know that I am God.”  “I can assure you,” she said, “ Nobody was ever still in my church!”
