Online Inspirational Services
Join us here for a weekly online inspirational service led by an SRF or YSS monastic. These talks on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda generally include a period of meditation. After the talks are here for the week, they relocate to our Video & Audio Teachings Library.
“The Personal Approach to God” by Brother Bhaktananda
In this talk Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Bhaktananda shares wisdom from Paramahansa Yogananda on how every devotee can learn to experience the constant presence of God — by meditation and by cultivating the habit of remembering Him with love all day long. Drawing from his many years of training as a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, whom he lovingly refers to as “Master,” Brother Bhaktananda shares his personal experiences of learning to live with heart and mind uplifted in the Divine.
Brother Bhaktananda (1914 – 2005), who entered the SRF ashram in 1939, served as the senior minister at the SRF temple in Hollywood, California, from 1971 until his passing in 2005. This talk was recorded at the 1993 SRF World Convocation in Los Angeles.
