Brother Chidananda Interviewed by India’s National Media

Oct 30, 2019

Continuing our travel coverage of Brother Chidananda’s visit to India, we share two interviews with Doordarshan Television and All India Radio, the popular television and radio networks of India’s public broadcasting agency, Prasar Bharati.

In these interviews (conducted while he was in Noida for a three-day event at the YSS Noida Ashram), Brother Chidananda speaks on many topics, including how yoga, with its universal spirituality and techniques of meditation, is a much-needed survival skill for this age.

Interview with All India Radio

In this interview—entitled “Yoga, Self-realization, and Spiritual Awakening in the Modern Times”—Brother Chidananda elaborates on how even the busiest of people can find time for using the science of yoga to bring out the divinity that lies within each soul. He also talks about the real relationship between material science and spirituality; the source of Mahatma Gandhi’s strength and power to alter history; and the potential for today’s youth, as they work to establish their individual identities, to find true self-esteem, love, and meaning—not through “outward grasping” but an inner validation gained in meditation.

This interview was recorded by All India Radio and broadcast on October 16, 2019.
