March 10, 2021

Discover the power of prayer and how to pray effectively as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda. Learn that prayer is one-half of the conversation with God as we develop an intimate relationship with the Divine. Sanjan explores ways to deepen your prayer, and we finish with a group practice of the prayer below, taken from the book: The Essence of Self-Realization.

O Infinite Beloved, I know that Thou are nearer than these words with which I pray. Nearer even than my nearest thoughts. Behind my every restless feeling, may I feel Thy concern for me. And Thy Love. Behind my awareness, may I feel sustained and guided by Thy consciousness. Behind my love for Thee, may I become ever more deeply conscious of Thy Love.
