From the Spiritual Diary, October 19, Courage: I have bled for Thy Name; and for Thy Name's sake I am willing ever to bleed. Like a mighty warrior, with gory limbs, injured body, wounded honor, and a thorn crown of derision, undismayed I fight on. My scars I wear as roses of courage, of inspiration to persevere in the battle against evil. I may continue to suffer blows on my arms outstretched to help others, and receive persecution instead of love, but my soul shall ever bask in the sunshine of Thy blessings, O Lord. Thou dost guide Thy soldier's campaigns that conquer for Thee the lands of human hearts now oppressed by sadness. - Paramahansa Yogananda, "Whispers from Eternity"

Welcome to Greenfield Retreat

These techniques are available in a series of weekly lessons sent to your home from our International Headquarters in Los Angeles, California.
