This opening class for the 2022 Convocation begins with SRF/YSS President Brother Chidananda officially opening the Convocation, welcoming all in the name of Yogananda, and leading a prayer invocation to bless this week of spiritual renewal.

The class, given by SRF Vice President Brother Vishwananda, focuses on how — in this turbulent world with its engrossing challenges — we can discover a common denominator of calm, wisdom-guided understanding and positive outlook, to enable us to turn even the most stubborn obstacles into a lighted pathway to spiritual success.

The pathways of life are strewn with obstacles that can cause us to stumble or momentarily lose direction. Similarly, on the path toward Self-realization, to walk steadily upon life’s unpredictable journey back to the Divine, the seeker must be able to see, analyze, and use every challenge as a stepping stone for soul unfoldment.

This video is part of the 2022 SRF World Convocation, a free weeklong program of online classes on Yogananda’s “how-to-live” teachings and meditation techniques, guided group meditations and kirtans (devotional chanting), virtual pilgrimage tours to the ashrams where Yogananda lived and communed with the Divine, and more.

To learn about the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons, the home-study course created by Paramahansa Yogananda to teach the science of meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living:
