Developing a Moment-to-Moment Relationship With God

Brother Govindananda

Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Govindananda discusses Paramahansa Yogananda’s teaching on meditation — not only do we want to experience God’s presence as peace, love, joy, in meditation, but we want to take that awareness with us during the day, no matter what’s going on around us. It is possible to do so as we gradually become aware of our true nature — and as we turn our meditations, and our lives, into a daily offering to the Divine.

The importance of seeing our efforts as an offering, Brother Govindananda points out, is discussed in detail in Lesson 5 of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons, the home-study course on meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living from Paramahansa Yogananda.
