Happiness Survey is one way.
The other is to have a physical center; people keep coming back then. We had the same question in Paris for many years. Today, I was told that since we have the Paris center, it is buzzing with so much activity. I think that makes a difference.
Moreover, teachers must make the centers more interesting. Not just make them do the Kriya and go back home, but also involve everyone in some sort of service activity.
Take them all for a picnic, celebrate birthdays. Make a list of all your old participants and see who all are not coming for meditation, and satsangs. Look up their birthdays, and celebrate them. If you do all this, then why would they not come?
A few of you should take a birthday cake, call and tell them that we are going to come and wish you. This is how you connect. The next time it is someone else’s birthday, they will come and join you. I think this is another way to do it.
