President and Spiritual Head of
Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India
With joy I welcome you to our website and the first installment of the SRF Blog, where the other monastics and I will be sharing Paramahansa Yogananda’s timeless wisdom and inspiration for living a spiritually centered life.
A world teacher to countless seekers around the globe, Paramahansaji said, “Learn to be calmly active and actively calm, carrying into your daily activities the calmness gained in the spiritual activity of meditation.” As more and more people make the effort to follow this guidance, cultivating a dynamic inner communion with the Divine that flows outward in a spirit of love and service toward all, greater harmony and peace will manifest not only in the lives of those individuals, but in our communities, nations, and throughout the world.
Experiencing the joy of the soul is at the core of Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual path. So I encourage you to start today to explore the ancient science of yoga meditation — or to deepen your practice if you have already begun — for meditation is the most direct means to realizing that joy. Our SRF website is here to assist you in your spiritual quest.
I hope these posts will serve to strengthen you in your inner journey, and that you will return to them whenever you need inspiration or encouragement to meet life’s challenges.
It is a privilege for all of us who serve in the ashrams of Paramahansa Yogananda to reach out to you with his universal spirit of love. May divine blessings strengthen and sustain your every effort to live a life of spiritual harmony and joy.
