The Love and Wisdom of Paramahansa Yogananda

Sri Daya Mata

In this talk Sri Daya Mata, beloved third president of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, shares many beautiful personal insights about the guru-disciple relationship. Her words reflect the wise guidance and loving encouragement that Paramahansa Yogananda gave to all who sought his help on the path to spiritual freedom and ultimate reunion with the Divine.

Topics include:

  • The nature of a true guru — one who has travelled the path and knows God
  • The unconditional love of the guru for the disciple
  • Cultivating attunement and right attitude toward the guru
  • How to replace restlessness with the peace of meditation
  • Why modern families are struggling, and how to make yours stronger
  • An inspiring reading of Sri Yogananda’s poem “When I Am Only A Dream”

This talk was recorded on August 19, 1989, following the annual Convocation gathering of Self-Realization Fellowship members from around the world, when Sri Daya Mata met with some of the attendees in the main chapel at the SRF International Headquarters in Los Angeles.
