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 9 year anniversary of service to the One in all in our South Bay communities. 

On November 8th, 2023, 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 9 years, BLC has served 15,018 meditators and offered 1,710 classes, groups, and life support services.   We welcomed 716 newcomers and provided uninterrupted services even through the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Yogacharya O'Brian offered a blessing for continued service to sincere seekers of peace from all backgrounds.  BLC looks forward to serving the community for many more years to come.  Namaste.

“Peace in our homes, community, and world begin with a vision of it, faith in it, and the commitment to realize it by working for it. Bring forth the light of peace by first experiencing it directly in meditation, and then transmit that divine peace to others.”
