With immense joy, we announce that the Government of India has once again recognised the spiritual stature and contributions of one of the immortal sons of India, our Gurudeva Paramahansa Yogananda, and has decided to commemorate his 125th Birth Anniversary.

Paramahansa Yogananda, the author of the renowned spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, founded Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS). The mission of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India/Self-Realization Fellowship (the international organization founded by Paramahansaji to disseminate his teachings worldwide), is to make available to all the ancient scientific teachings of Kriya Yoga for attaining the direct personal experience of God.

To cope with and overcome the challenges of a fast-paced and potentially stressful lifestyle, the modern man is more than ever in need of divine guidance. Paramahansaji’s non-sectarian “how-to-live” teachings embody a complete philosophy and way of life for achieving all-round success and well-being, as well as a comprehensive system of yoga meditation techniques for achieving life’s ultimate goal — Self-realization.

Service December 18

As the vital rays of the sun nurture all, so should you spread rays of hope in the hearts of the poor and forsaken, kindle courage in the hearts of the despondent, and light a new strength in the hearts of those who think that they are failures. When you realize that life is a joyous battle of duty and at the same time a passing dream, and when you become filled with the joy of making others happy by giving them kindness and peace, in God's eyes your life is a success.

- Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
