The following are offered from 11-12 noon at the Modern Maturity building in Dover:
Sunday, November 21 Sound of Soul Event Host: Jim Slocum
Sunday, December 19 Celebration of Light and Sound Host: Kappel Tilghman
12/19 Theme: The Call of Soul The collective body of initiates work for a common cause, to assist the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master to spread the message of Eckankar to all worlds including the physical universe. Each is a channel within himself, not a spiritual medium, but that through which the ECK power reaches the world. The initiate channels the power to uplift and enlighten all those within the worlds who have not been touched by the divine message of ECK. The Shariyat Ki -Sugmad Book 1 & 2, Paul Twitchell, pg. 478
Discussion on “Unanswered Spiritual Questions”
Delaware Satsang is inviting you to an open spiritual discussion on the second Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 P.M. If you have unanswered spiritual questions please join us to look at it from a spiritual viewpoint instead of a physical viewpoint.

To help limit the spread of COVID-19, world health officials have called on individuals, communities, and organizations to do their part. Much advice has been given to faith organizations to prevent wider transmission, including strong preventive steps at in-person gatherings.
In particular, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States’ Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have recommended that people 60 years or older avoid group gatherings. In some locations, the government has suspended large gatherings altogether.
At the individual level, we encourage you to follow the health practices recommended by your local, regional, and national health authorities. You can also visit the websites of WHO or the CDC for additional resources.
Eckankar is also paying close attention to the daily COVID-19 updates. It’s especially important that we offer the best service to you, our members, as well as to spiritual seekers and the wider communities in which we live.
While we would prefer to see in-person events take place, the recommended steps to prevent COVID-19 transmission would strain the volunteer resources that form the heart of the ECK organization in the field. It would also shift the focus of our events away from the spiritual teachings.
For these reasons, the Regional ECK Spiritual Aides (RESAs) have been notified that all group ECK events and activities are suspended worldwide until further notice. During this time, we will continue to evaluate the next best steps for ECK activities and events.
This suspension includes:
- Satsang Classes
- HU Chants
- Book Discussions
- ECK Light and Sound Services
- Sound of Soul Events
- Spiritual Discussions
- All other ECK gatherings
- Note: ESA sessions and ECK initiations are not group events and may be conducted.
In lieu of outer gatherings, we are considering easy ways to hold some ECK activities via phone, online, Skype, and Zoom. Your RESA and regional ECK society will have more information for you soon.

In times like these, ECKists have much to share with families, friends, co-workers, and the world. Each of you is a potential light in the world and we thank you for your love and understanding.
Here is a profound contemplation seed from the Master:
|A quickening of the spiritual currents is in the works. The purification of Souls will speed up. The tables of politics, economics, and order in society are due to turn upside down. There will be unrest of the deepest kind.
But you will feel at peace.
Something will always be boiling over in human affairs. Yet sanctuary, peace, and contentment are in ready supply in the higher states of consciousness. The Spiritual Exercises of ECK are your means to enter them. They will be your solace. They are the springboard to love divine, to a love that excels all other things.
Take heart, for the sun shines on all who love God, the ECK, and the Mahanta.
—Sri Harold Klemp, June 2005 Mystic World, “Ask the Master”
An Edge for Health:
“HU, the secret name of God, opens you as a channel for the greater healing of Divine Spirit.
Every thought, word, or deed either purifies or pollutes the body. This is very important, very powerful, because it deals with your state of consciousness.
If, at some point, you need an edge for health or for peace of mind, look to what ‘s coming into your world. Look to your form of music, or your form of news. Be aware of whatever ways you let the external world into your internal world.
What’s coming in is going to go back out. Then it rebounds like an echo and returns to you. It strengthens and grows to have a very strong influence in your life. This influence can be for either beneficial things or harmful things. So the choice is yours.
Every thought, word, or deed either purifies or pollutes your body.
The HU song is a purifier. It will uplift and strengthen you in wisdom and awareness.”
The Sound of Soul, Sri Harold Klemp, p. 22-23

Sound of SOUL Event
A Sound of Soul Event is an opportunity to experience HU, a love song to God in a group setting.
HU is woven into the language of life. It is the Sound of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. . . . Its sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream. And yet, the word HU is not God. It is a word people anywhere can use to address the Originator of Life. —Harold Klemp
Every third Sunday of the month
