YSS Lessons Available in Digital Format Only

As a result of the lockdown in Jharkhand and other states across India, we are temporarily unable to send out any printed mailings, including the Yogoda Satsanga Lessons and all other physical publications and products. However, during this time period, we will continue to offer the English-language edition of the Yogoda Satsanga Lessons to YSS students in digital form via a proprietary app that is available for Apple (iOS) and Android devices. 

This means you will be able to receive new Lessons as per our regular schedule, and will be able to read and study them on your digital device. You will also be able to access the valuable auxiliary material that accompanies each Lesson.

All Lessons that you have received in digital form will be mailed to you in printed form when we are able to resume mailings. Under normal circumstances, we encourage you to use the printed version of the Lessons as your primary source of spiritual study. But we are grateful that the digital app makes it possible for you to receive the Lessons even during the temporary shutdown.

We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. Please know that we hold you in our prayers, and that God and the Great Ones are surrounding you with their ever-existing divine love and protection.

YSS Lessons Applications Are Still Being Processed

While we are not able to send out any printed mailings during this time, we are continuing to process new applications for the YSS Lessons, and you are welcome to apply. We will notify you as soon as the printed Lessons can be mailed out again. However, as mentioned above, during this time period, students of the English Lessons will be able to read them on the YSS Lessons app. New Lessons will become unlocked in the app for Lessons students to view every two weeks.

YSS Lessons Mailings Temporarily Paused

As a result of the lockdown in Jharkhand and other states across India, we are temporarily unable to send out any mailings — the Yogoda Satsanga Lessons and all other physical publications and products. Your current subscription to the Lessons has been put on hold temporarily, and we look forward to resuming mailings once our operations are back to normal.

We are currently exploring short-term solutions to this situation and will announce the alternatives as soon as we have a clearer idea of how to best serve your needs. In the interim, we encourage you to use this time for reviewing the Lessons you have already received, practising the YSS meditation techniques, and deepening your personal relationship with God. If you have not already done so, we would also encourage you to subscribe to the YSS eNewsletter.

We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. Please know that we hold you in our prayers, and that God and the Great Ones are surrounding you with their ever-existing divine love and protection.

YSS Lessons Applications Still Being Processed

While we are not able to send out any printed mailings during this time, we are continuing to process new applications for the YSS Lessons, and you are welcome to apply. We will notify you as soon as the printed Lessons can be mailed out again.

Update: March 5, 2020

As you are all aware, corona virus has started to spread in India. We have consulted public health experts in this area, and they have strongly advised us to suspend all non-essential congregations. Keeping their advice in mind, and out of an abundance of caution and care, we deeply regret to inform you of the following decisions, which will be effective immediately and will remain operative until further notice:

Please share this important update with all devotees via notice boards, email, SMS, and WhatsApp at the earliest, requesting them to join us in prayers for all humanity during this challenging period.

If devotees have any questions, they may contact YSS Ranchi Help Desk via email [email protected] or by phone: 6201394775, 6201395589, 9431917333/444/555 (Mon-Sat: 9am to 4.30pm)

Let us keep in mind these words of our Gurudeva: “Whatever it is that you fear, take your mind away from it and leave it to God. Have faith in Him…Every night, before you sleep, affirm: ‘The Heavenly Father is with me; I am protected.’ Mentally surround yourself with Spirit and His cosmic energy.” Gurudeva expected us to use practical outer means and commonsense methods to prevent illness, but he also urged us to have a positive attitude and faith in God’s love and protection. That inner attunement felt in meditation and prayer will allow us to reach into the infinite reservoir of God’s healing power to help ourselves and all those who are in need.
