Product Code:


“Our Guru brought this path of Self-Realization that you all were seeking and found. And to the degree that you make the effort to follow, your lives become divine candles; the spark of God’s nature as your soul grows brighter and brighter to bring light into the world.”

–Sri Mrinalini Mata


In this encouraging talk, given at the 2015 Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation, SRF/YSS President Sri Mrinalini Mata illustrates how to embrace the tangible presence of God through Paramahansa Yogananda’s ideal of divine love. In so doing, one’s life becomes filled with untold blessings, and a natural desire to share that upliftment with all.

Topics include:

• The continuity of the Guru’s blessings
• The answer to the world’s present darkness
• Paramahansa Yogananda’s “Universal Prayer”
• How God’s universal love manifests in this world
• Communing with God as Aum

Her talk ends with a beautiful ceremony honoring the success of the documentary film Awake: The Life of Yogananada in supporting Paramahansa Yogananda’s divine mission of radiating the universal love and light of God into the world.

About the author

Sri Mrinalini Mata, one of those personally trained and chosen by Paramahansa Yogananda to carry on the mission of his society after his passing, has been president and spiritual head of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India since 2011. Born in Kansas in 1931, she met the Guru in 1945, at the Self-Realization Fellowship Temple in San Diego. Just a few months later, with her parents’ permission, she entered Sri Yogananda’s ashram in Encinitas, California, as a nun of the Self-Realization Order. Through daily association during the years that followed (up until the time of the Guru’s passing in 1952), Paramahansaji personally trained her to prepare his writings and talks for publication after his passing. She has made six extended trips to India to serve the Guru’s work there, and served as vice-president of SRF from 1966 until 2011. She is also editor-in-chief of SRF publications.
