Finding Joy in Plain Living and High Thinking

Brother Satyananda

In this talk with a period of meditation, Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Satyananda shares wisdom from Paramahansa Yogananda on how to find lasting happiness and peace in this ever-changing world. Brother Satyananda explains that we can ask ourselves: “What are my values? What is my treasure? What do I hold dear?” And then we can apply practical ideas such as what Paramahansaji meant by “plain living and high thinking,” living more simply so that we may enjoy the little pleasures of life. This talk was recorded at the SRF Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades, California on July 3, 2022.
