Paramahansa Yogananda Featured on Los Angeles Times

“If you practice yoga, thank this man who came to the U.S. 100 years ago” reads the headline of the Column One story in today’s Los Angeles Times, which pays tribute to the centennial of Paramahansa Yogananda’s arrival in the West and to the enduring popularity and relevance of his yoga meditation teachings. Reporter Deborah Netburn’s interviews with SRF President Brother Chidananda as well as with well-known religion scholars and authors—including USC’s Varun Soni, Harvard’s Diana Eck, and author Philip Goldberg—provide an illuminating chronicle of the great yogi’s contribution to the world, and within California.

“A Promise of Light” by Sri Daya Mata

This talk by Sri Daya Mata (SRF/YSS president from 1955 until her passing in 2010) was given at the 1993 SRF World Convocation in Los Angeles as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Paramahansa Yogananda’s birth. We are sharing it now because her message resonates with special relevance in this centennial year of Self-Realization Fellowship, as well as being deeply meaningful in these times of world crisis.   In her talk Daya Mata explains that Paramahansaji was sent to the West to address humanity’s hunger for direct personal experience of God. She provides insight into the deep underlying reasons for the current difficulties in the world situation, along with uplifting counsel to help us to connect with the Inner Source of security and reassurance.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW3hyJWpuRE&feature=emb_title ...
