Concentration: Key to Communion With God

Brother Ishtananda

In this talk with a period of meditation, Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Ishtananda shares insights from Paramahansa Yogananda on the importance of cultivating concentration — an essential skill in our everyday active lives as well as in meditation.

By applying a scientific approach from yoga to learn how to concentrate, you will be able to experience stillness in meditation and truly discover the Divine presence within. Brother Ishtananda also brings up the importance on the spiritual path of cultivating love — for others and for an aspect of the Divine closest to our hearts, as something we can practice in connection with concentration. This talk was given at SRF San Diego Temple on April 24, 2022.
