2019 Happy 5th Birthday Blue Lotus Center!

       In the divine grace of the Yogic lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the first teachers to bring yoga to the USA, Mr. Roy Eugene Davis, one of Yogananda’s devoted students, and Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, one of Mr. Davis’s devoted students, the Blue Lotus Meditation and Yoga Center celebrated its 5 year anniversary of service to the One in all in our rural south bay communities.
       On November 6th, 2019, BLC community members offered their gratitude for the first inter-spiritual meditation and classical yoga center in our community, as we affirm the expanding realization of peace in our hearts, in our families, our country and our world. Over the past 5 years, BLC has served 6824 meditators and offered 938 classes, groups, and life support services. On behalf of Yogacharya O'Brian and CSE, Rev. Elena Kanti Fritchle, a CSE Associate Minister,  offered Blue Lotus Center   a certificate commemorating BLCs 5 years of steadfast service to meditators in our South County communities, and a blessing for continued service to sincere seekers of peace from all backgrounds.
