Real Changes in Your Life

Read what California ECKists are saying about the real difference Eckankar made in their lives:

Practicing the Spiritual Exercises of Eckankar has shown me how we are all connected, all on the same journey but taking different paths. I have developed a deep love for every living thing on this planet, and a compassion for my fellow man that I never knew before Eckankar. Looking back to when I first started on this path, I can honestly say that I am not the same person—and I love how it's changed me.
— Bess M., San Diego


My everyday life is so much better since being in ECK. I'm becoming the person I always wanted to be! Obstacles to happiness are falling away. I feel free inside! Every second is an adventure, an opportunity. I can choose my state of consciousness!
— Alan P., Los Angeles


I'm never bored—never a dull moment. Being in ECK fills the gap. When someone says how bored they are, I say, 'Study Eckankar.' We are always growing. That's just so exciting! I love growth!
— Virginia K., San Diego


Eckankar has made my life worth living. I've had experiences with Spirit that I used to read about in sacred literature. My dreams guide me, and I see Divine Spirit working with me in my daily life. I finally can feel divine love in my heart.
— Mark A., Redwood City



Explore the Light & Sound of God

Eckankar teaches that there is an audible life current known as the ECK, or Holy Spirit, that connects each of us with the heart of God. We can experience the ECK as Light and Sound. Through study and practice of the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, we learn to recognize the Light and Sound of God as It touches our lives and brings increased divine love.

Experience the HU

To hear the sound of thousands of people singing HU, a love song to God, visit

Sing HU at Home

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. There are many ways to experience the love of God. 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.

When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you might also perceive the inner Light and Sound. The Light may appear as brightness or colors on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. However you experience the presence of God, it is bringing you a broader understanding of the life you lead.

If you would like to learn more about this spiritual exercise, a newly released audio CD entitled HU: A Love Song to God is available at your local ECK Center.
