Episode 26: Learn to Stand Firm in Your Own Center

Swami Kriyananda

Mental illness, depression, how to be happy, and the evolution of the soul through many lives as animal and humans.

Questions include:

  • It seems that mental illness in this age is in the ascent. Many people suffer from depression, melancholy, or other things like it — such as anger and other kinds of emotional disruption. Do you have any advice for what people can do to alleviate that?
  • Mental illness seems to come when one tries to escape reality.
  • You can become happy at will?
  • What can we learn from our past incarnations when we finally do remember them?
  • It sounds like pain is one of the primary ways that people evolve?

Ask Me About Truth

Swami Kriyananda answers questions about truth and many spiritual subjects, as he learned about them directly from Paramhansa Yogananda. (These talks were recorded in 2012, before Swami Kriyananda's passing.)
