Eckankar Members Experience the ECK

"When I was in high school, my friends who knew me well always asked me, “Have you found the answer to life yet?” I was always looking for an answer to why things are as they are. Then I found Eckankar. Since, there has not been a day, leading to a month, leading to a year that goes by where life does not whisper its secrets. It is a step within many steps, and who is to say which step was more valuable than the next. They all make up a journey that moves you from where you are to a place that is warm and familiar."

“When I was five years old, my mother watched me march up and down the back yard. Finally she asked me what I was doing. I simply told her in no uncertain terms that I was practicing to be a wanderer. So thereafter, I wandered the high mountains and streams, the beaches and surf, the places in my dreams… I was always chasing that elusive sound that I could hear or the light that I would catch a glimpse of and could never explain. I knew this sound and light had a very special meaning, because it always brought me comfort and protection.

When I was in my early 20s, the path of Eckankar was handed to me by a homeless person living in an old log mill site cabin where I had free pasture for my horse. My life changed from that moment on – from being a wanderer in search of truth to being a seeker of knowledge." read more...

“Eckankar is a lifeline. Imagine you’re floating in the ocean with a rapidly deflating life-vest. There’s nothing around as far as the eyes can see. Desolate, alone, depressed and anxious, you fight to stay afloat. Survival instinct kicks in. There has got to be a better way to live. That’s when I found Eckankar. It’s through the continued practice of the Spiritual Exercises of ECK that I find life to be worth living. I am not alone as the Mahanta (Inner Master) is with me. My depression is lifted, my heart is lighter, my mind clearer and my senses are cleaner. Eckankar is the sustenance that makes life worth living.”

~ K.V.H., Boise
