Nayaswami Maria chants this beautiful song by Paramhansa Yogananda. Recorded at Ananda Village June 13th 2021.


Mother, I give You my soul, soul, soul call;

You can’t remain hidden anymore.

Give my Mother a soul, soul, soul call;

She can’t remain hidden anymore.

Come out of the silent sky; come out of the mountain glen.

Come out of my secret soul (Ma): come out of my secret soul;

Come out of my cave of silence, come out of my cave of silence



Paramhansa Yogananda, born in 1893, was the first yoga master of India to take up permanent residence in the West. Yogananda arrived in America in 1920, and proceeded to travel throughout the United States on what he called his “spiritual campaigns.” Hundreds of thousands filled the largest halls in major American cities to see the yoga master from India. Yogananda continued to lecture and write up to his passing in 1952. Paramhansa Yogananda’s initial impact on the western culture was truly impressive. But his lasting spiritual legacy has been even greater. His *Autobiography of a Yogi*, first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West. Translated into more than a dozen languages, it remains a best-selling spiritual classic to this day.
