Controlling the Power of Habits

Brother Prafullananda

Drawing from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Prafullananda speaks about the power of habit. He points out how far removed we have become from to our true state of soul consciousness: ever existing, ever conscious, ever new bliss. “We have changed beyond recognition of that soul nature, largely because of our habits — the traits and behaviors that we perform all the time unconsciously.” And yet while our habits can turn us away from our divine nature, our habits can also help transform us back into those beings of bliss, true embodiments of the soul. This talk was recorded at the SRF temple in Fullerton, California.
