Houseboat

Dear Guests, We are happy to announce that the Houseboat is open for Saturday morning meditations. Saturday hours are 9:30am until 11:30am.

The greatest of all duties is to remember God. The first thing to do in the morning is to meditate on Him and think how you can give your life to His service, so that all day long you will be filled with His joy.

— Paramahansa Yogananda
