I am in Encinitas California, once known as "The Flower Capital"
It is an incredibly beautiful coastal town, the Hwy 101 in Leucadia is an exquisite grand lane lined with 3 story Eucalyptus Trees.
I was fortunate to catch 11am Sunday service and meditation at the Self Realization Fellowship Temple. We sang and meditated before listening to a mesmerizing talk. A vibrant group of international devotees present as a contingent from the Annual Convocation held in Los Angeles. The website ananda.org has lyrics and audio if you are interested for further listening.
Yogananda was a 20th century guru on the west coast for many years. His teachings draw from the wisdom of a number of saints and sages of all religions including Jesus Christ. There is a lovely hermitage garden and pond on the cliff's edge in Encinitas.
