Paramahansa Yogananda’s Insights into Spiritual Living
In the realm of spiritual exploration, the core purpose of our earthly existence takes center stage. Mystics, saints, sages, and yogis across epochs and cultures have converged on a singular answer: to cultivate a personal connection with God, bridging the gap between our everyday lives and the realm of Spirit. The art of spiritual living offers a pragmatic path toward nurturing this profound relationship.
“Self-realization is the knowing — in body, mind, and soul — that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it comes to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”
— Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings elucidate that the wisdom, creativity, happiness, and security we tirelessly seek are intrinsic to our very being, residing within. The realization of this truth, not as a mere intellectual concept but as a living experience that infuses strength and clarity into every facet of existence, embodies the essence of the Kriya Yoga teachings of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India/Self-Realization Fellowship.
