Our Monthly Temple Meeting takes place this Tuesday, November 19, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The meeting begins in the main Temple with a half-hour meditation followed by a class by our minister on Autobiography of a Yogi. We then move to the Special Events Room for updates about Temple activities and projects. All are warmly invited to attend.

Our Holiday Toy Drive is about half-way through, and we have had a great first start, but more unwrapped toy donations for the Community Resource Center are still needed. If you haven’t contributed yet, please consider helping our Temple support the children in our community who might otherwise receive little or nothing for the holidays. Their goal is to give 3,500 children toys this year, so CRC really needs our help. 

All are warmly invited to a Christmas Open House at the SRF Mother Center on Saturday, December 7, from 12 – 5 p.m. The Open House provides an opportunity to meet informally with the monastics and each other in the spirit of Christmas fellowship. Light refreshments will be served.

Due to the timing of the 2019 Encinitas Holiday Parade, with no access into downtown, the Temple will not be chartering buses to the Mother Center this year. Please consider carpooling since parking is quite limited around Mother Center.

There will be a Street Fair next Sunday, November 24, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., along Highway 101 between D and J Streets. Parking will be limited, so please allow extra driving time on Sunday.

All are invited to sign a Thanksgiving card for SRF President Brother Chidananda and the SRF Board of Directors after the service at a table outside.
