Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Sevananda shares wisdom from Yogananda on how our true soul-nature can be expressed regardless of the inevitable tests and trials of life.

By drawing on the power of meditation and then facing our challenges, we can recognize and utilize the strength that is within us. By doing this, Brother Sevananda explains, we feel in our hearts — and then share with our loved ones and the world — peace, love, support, humor, and divine joy.

This talk was recorded at the 2014 World Convocation in Los Angeles.

Yogananda taught the complete art of balanced spiritual living and science of meditation in his home study course, the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. Learn how to enroll:
