Giving Thanks for Life’s Blessings: Attitudes of a Yogi

Brother Jayananda

SRF monk Brother Jayananda discusses positive ways we can approach all life’s situations as yogis in order to be successful spiritually: “When we talk about thanksgiving or gratitude, these are attitudes really — ways of thinking, or ways of approaching life.” Drawing from Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings and the example of Sri Daya Mata, SRF’s beloved third president, Brother Jayananda explains that right attitudes are just as foundational to the science and practice of yoga as are right behaviors; and stresses that no matter what problems may occur, we can maintain an attitude of thankfulness to become aware of God’s guidance and protection.
