"EAST-WEST" SYMBOL. The colored symbol on our front cover signifies the single spiritual eye of meditation, the pranic star door through which we must enter to find Cosmic Consciousness, taught by the Yogoda method of meditation. "Therefore, when thine eye be single, thy body shall be full of light. . . . Take heed, therefore, that the light which is in thee be not darkness."óLuke 11:34-35.

MEANING OF "YOGODA" AND "SAT-SANGA." "Yogoda" means the system which teaches one to harmonize all the forces and faculties that operate for the perfection of body, mind and soul. "Sat-Sanga" means "Fellowship with truth."

MONTHLY DONATION PLEDGES. We hope that every Yogoda student will see his way clear to donate a regular monthly sum to the upkeep of the Mount Washington Educational Center, so that its energies may be free to devote to educational activities of a world-wide nature. We want to feel that every Yogoda student is taking an active interest in our work, and is willing to do his share in maintaining it and helping to spread its message of peace and a fuller understanding of life.

APPLICATIONS FOR TEACHERS' COURSE. Swami Yogananda wants to recruit a Spiritual Army. Yogoda needs real workers, robust in body and mind, of calm disposition, mental shock-absorbers who will allow nothing to upset or anger them, who will join us for life, or who can receive at least one year's training to be teachers, according to the rules of the institution. Make your application now, telling your occupation, education, age, marital status, also financial condition (if you wish to give this information). Please send a recent photograph of yourself. The Yogoda Teachers Training School has not yet been opened, and no residential students are accepted at present. But plans are going forward all the time to start this work at the earliest possible moment.
