Brother Chidananda, president and spiritual head of SRF/YSS, will give a special talk at the close of the 2022 SRF World Convocation. As all who have joined together for this special week look to hold onto the many blessings that come from absorbing hearts and minds in the soul-joy, divine fellowship, and wisdom that flows from Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” teachings, Brother Chidananda will speak about the tremendous spiritual strength that enters our lives — and the world — when we attend Convocation, and when each day with sincerity and receptivity we put into practice the universal techniques and principles of the Kriya Yoga path.

This video is part of the 2022 SRF World Convocation, a free weeklong program of online classes on Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” teachings and meditation techniques, guided group meditations and kirtans (devotional chanting), virtual pilgrimage tours to the ashrams where Yogananda lived and communed with the Divine, and more.

      I like those people. They are pure, soft but still strong and sharp. They are very etheric in spirit but still they are warm persons.

      Brother Chidananda is right about the destruction of the human family caused by the loss of religion in the world. My own family was destroyed by spiritual illness.

      Don't watch the news. Watch the SRF Youtube channel instead!

      Brother Chidananda, you are such an engaging, personable, and accessible-feeling speaker–a master of this video format! I've found it a joy to listen to your talks, even though as a Yogananda devotee, for the past 10 years I've centered myself around Ananda (another Yogananda organization). It was largely because of the more engaging and accessible feeling I'd gotten from Ananda that I'd made that shift, but it delights me lately to see this same spirit manifesting more and more with you and SRF in general, where I began my spiritual path some 23 years ago. We are all Master's children–may we feel it ever more! And I'm hoping that you all try to maintain as much of the special benefits of the online convocation format even once the original impetus for them has disappeared. Blessings!



      Pranams to our beloved guru parapmpara and brother pujya sri chidananda garu.

      Sri Chidanandaji, Thank You for everything. Your talks help me answer so many of my questions as if Guruji is directly talking to me.

      Loved the new SRF/YSS mobile app. It contains everything I had requested for and lot more…

      From about 45 minutes into the lectures, the true fire rite ceremony starts! Imagining ourselves in the fire of Wisdom, with the Guru and great gurus standing, and praying that all the past bad karmas are getting fuel consumed, is surrender supreme.
      May all the dross of physical, mental and spiritual impurity be flushed out from our systems so that we may surrender our free will and love to the almighty.

    • Ramesh Badiani

      Wonderfully uplifting discorces !

    • Sri Ramakrishna Kutir
