Life’s Challenges — Opportunities for Spiritual Progress

Brother Prafullananda

From a satsanga given at 2018 SRF World Convocation, Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Prafullananda shares insights from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda on using yoga meditation to help us realize the ultimate goal of life.

He explains how a willingness to change ourselves is one of the most important qualities to make swift progress on the spiritual path. Other topics include how the spiritual life intersects with daily concerns such as financial issues, how a difficult environment can be a catalyst for spiritual growth, the help of a true guru at the time of death, and using meditation as a means for dealing with life’s difficult circumstances with equanimity.
