LOS ANGELES—Satyananda, a long-time monk of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), founded in 1920 by Sri Yogananda, will discuss the power of yoga meditation for reconnecting with one’s essential nature during a talk entitled “Finding Inner Peace through Meditation” in Boston
The public lecture, which will include a guided meditation, will be held on Friday, April 20 at Old South Church of Boston at 645 Boylston Street from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In his talk, which is based on the teachings of Sri Yogananda, Satyananda will offer insights and practical advice on how yoga meditation works in one’s life, helping to turn the searchlight of the senses from the outer to the inner realm.
The benefits of regular practice help create an inner calmness that becomes the stable ground from which to conduct all of life’s activities. As Satyananda explains, “The attitudes, behaviors and interpersonal skills which grow from a foundation of daily meditation and a balanced, healthy life-style can help each of us to become more productive contributors to a better society and a more peaceful world.”
The public lecture is hosted by Self-Realization Fellowship, which Paramahansa Yogananda founded nearly a century ago to disseminate his Kriya Yoga teachings.
Kriya Yoga includes a sacred technique of meditation that serves to quiet both body and mind, making it possible to withdraw one’s energy and attention from the usual turbulence of thoughts, emotions, and sensory perceptions. In the clarity of that inner stillness, one comes to experience a deepening interior peace and attunement with one’s soul.
