This is the tenth recording in Self-Realization Fellowship’s Collector’s Series of rare archival talks by Paramahansa Yogananda. The occasion was a celebration of the great Guru’s birthday — a joyous gathering of disciples and friends at the SRF International Headquarters in Los Angeles in the late 1940s. The first few minutes of the program are a brief but inspiring talk by Paramahansaji’s advanced disciple Rajarsi Janakananda. Then the Guru himself addresses the gathering — reminiscing with great love, wisdom, and good humor about the divinely orchestrated events surrounding his departure from India in 1920 to spread the message of yoga meditation in the West.
Concluding with a powerfully uplifting exhortation to all who are seeking the Divine, Paramahansaji reminds his listeners that God’s infinite love is the only lasting Reality, and urges them: “Find that Shelter in your heart of hearts.”
