Who Are We Really? Living in the World as a Soul | 2020 SRF Online World Convocation | August 13

Bruder Govindananda

“Who am I?” “Where am I headed?” “Is God hiding from me, or am I hiding from Him?” Such questions have a way of showing up repeatedly in the spiritual journey.

As part of the Day 4 (Wednesday) schedule of the 2020 SRF World Convocation, SRF monk Brother Govindananda will give a class about how in the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, we find not just theories and speculative answers to these questions but living truths that enable us to get answers from within.

The journey starts by changing how you think of yourself: Do not start it from where maya wants you to think you are — a limited human being. Start from the truth: You are a child of God. This class will explore how to cultivate the understanding and attunement that reveals that you are a spark of the Infinite — a soul — moving rapidly toward the realization of your oneness with God.

The 2020 Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation is a week of free online classes, meditations, virtual pilgrimages to ashram centers where Yogananda lived, kirtans (devotional chanting), and more—offering all seekers of higher consciousness and balanced spiritual living a unique experience of peace and joy.

This year SRF is honoring the 100th anniversary of Yogananda’s arrival in the West and the beginning of his worldwide work.

Paramahansa Yogananda viewed the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons as the very core of the teachings he was ordained to bring to the world as a special spiritual dispensation for the coming global civilization. To learn more and apply for the SRF Lessons: https://yogananda.org/lessons
