The Mother Aspect of God

Brother Anandamoy

Paramahansa Yogananda said in his Autobiography of a Yogi that because God as the Infinite Absolute is beyond all qualities, “human thought and yearning have ever personalized It as the Universal Mother.” In this talk, Brother Anandamoy, a beloved minister of Self-Realization Fellowship, discusses Paramahansa Yogananda’s wisdom about God as the Divine Mother and how we, too, can awaken a greater awareness of the Divine Mother’s all-embracing presence and unconditional love She has for us as Her children.

Topics Include:

  • Numerous stories from the life of Paramahansa Yogananda
  • Understanding the different manifestations of the Divine Mother in our lives
  • How to be receptive to divine grace
  • The Guru: visible expression of Divine Mother’s unconditional love
  • Beautiful examples of the devotion to the Mother that is India’s timeless heritage

Brother Anandamoy (1922 – 2016), was an international lecturer for Self-Realization Fellowship, and his talks continue to present for students of Paramahansaji’s teachings and spiritual seekers everywhere key insights into the spiritual path. This talk was given at the 1981 SRF Convocation in Los Angeles.
