Opening Program | 2023 SRF World Convocation

Sister Draupadi

This opening class for the 2023 Convocation, streamed live from the SRF Glendale Temple, begins with SRF/YSS President Brother Chidananda inaugurating the Convocation, welcoming all in the name of Paramahansa Yogananda and leading a prayer invocation to bless this week of spiritual renewal.

Sister Draupadi then speaks on how to cultivate a deeper relationship with God and the mental attitudes that will keep that relationship strong no matter what challenges we may face in the world.

This video is part of the 2023 SRF World Convocation, a free weeklong program of online classes on Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” teachings and meditation techniques, guided group meditations and kirtans (devotional chanting), virtual pilgrimage tours to the ashrams where Yogananda lived and communed with the Divine, and more.
