We in the ashrams of Paramahansa Yogananda are deeply concerned for the welfare of the YSS/SRF global spiritual family and for all humanity during the current difficult world situation. Above all, we want to encourage you to turn within to the unfailing Inner Source of protection and reassurance. Here are some online resources to aid you in your efforts to do just that at this or any other time of need. We will be updating this list with more content in the weeks to come:
Messages From Swami Chidananda Giri
In this message entitled “Crisis or Spiritual Opportunity?” YSS/SRF President Sri Sri Swami Chidananda Giri offers guidance how we all can best meet the challenges posed by the present world situation.
On March 14 Swami Chidanandaji posted a video on the current world situation in which he offers a message of encouragement and practical guidance for coping with these difficult times, and also leads a guided meditation and prayer service.
SRF Online Meditation Center
The SRF Online Meditation Center offers everyone, no matter where you are located in the world, the opportunity to experience live group meditation just like those conducted in YSS/SRF ashrams, kendras, mandalis, and retreat centres. YSS/SRF sannyasis conduct some of the meditations, and longtime YSS/SRF lay devotees conduct the rest. We invite you to join the thousands that are participating in this powerful means of connecting with the Divine and with the worldwide spiritual family of devotees and seekers.
Weekly Online Inspirational Satsangas
Currently we are offering a new online inspirational satsanga each week, led by a YSS or SRF sannyasi. These programmes include meditation, chanting, and a talk on Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings. Through the satsangas presented here, you can join Paramahansa Yogananda’s worldwide spiritual family in weekly divine fellowship.
Please note: We will be archiving these online inspirational services on the “Weekly & Special Services” section of our website.
