Community HU Chant

"HU is an ancient name for God.  It is also a love song to God.  All that we do with the word HU is to sing it with reverence.  It represents the love of God for Soul, and we are Soul.  HU represents the enormous love that the Creator has for Its creation."


—Harold Klemp,
HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, p. 7


Come join us for a community HU Chant which lasts about twenty minutes followed by a brief silent contemplation.

Fellowship and light refreshments follow.

Hear the sound of HU at www.HearHU.org.

A Spiritual Exercise

You are invited to try this simple spiritual exercise. It has helped people of many different faiths open their hearts more fully to the uplifting presence of God.

To do the exercise, first get comfortable. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Next, gently put your attention on your inner visual screen, where daydreams and images come to you.

With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) as a song of love. You may notice a feeling of peace, warmth, and comfort. You may also recognize the presence of the Divine through greater spiritual insights into your daily life. There are many ways to experience the love of God.

Roundtable Discussions

Explore a spiritual topic with other participants in a lively discussion led by an ECK Spiritual Aide, a specially trained member of the ECK clergy. Enjoy listening or sharing your spiritual experiences, insights, and questions. All are welcome. A range of topics is offered, often including selections for youth and young adults.
ECK Light and Sound Service

"[The ECK Light and Sound Service] is to help people find out what they can do to improve their relationship with God.  If we can help in any way, we are more than willing to be of service."

—Harold Klemp,
The Drumbeat of Time, pp. 94-95


You are warmly invited to attend an ECK Light and Sound Service.

Each service focuses on an aspect of Eckankar, and features a reading from the ECK works, a HU chant, and a group discussion of spiritual principles at work in daily life.

Services may also include creative arts, a talk, or a video excerpt of a talk by Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar. The ECK Light and Sound Service lasts about an hour.

Join others seeking to bring more divine love into their lives at this special celebration of the Light and Sound of God.
