A Promise of Light

Sri Daya Mata

This talk by Sri Daya Mata (third SRF/YSS president from 1955 until her passing in 2010) was given at the 1993 SRF World Convocation in Los Angeles as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Paramahansa Yogananda’s birth. Her message resonates with special relevance in relation to the centennial year of Self-Realization Fellowship, as well as being deeply meaningful in these times of world crisis.

In her talk Daya Mata explains that Paramahansaji was sent to the West to address humanity’s hunger for direct personal experience of God. She provides insight into the deep underlying reasons for the current difficulties in the world situation, along with uplifting counsel to help us to connect with the Inner Source of security and reassurance.
