Sri Daya Mata

Experience Sri Daya Mata's joyous and uplifting spirit of encouragement as she speaks about how to “be in the world but not of the world.”

Sri Daya Mata served as president and sanghamata of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India from 1955 until her passing in 2010. She was one of the foremost disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda. A true "Mother of Compassion," as her name signifies, she inspired those of all faiths and from all walks of life with the wisdom and great love of God conveyed through her talks, writings, and recordings.

Chosen by Paramahansa Yogananda to lead his work and serve as a spiritual mother to those drawn to his teachings, she was a guiding force of inspiration, wisdom, and compassion for SRF/YSS monastics and members alike as spiritual head of Paramahansaji's worldwide society for more than fifty-five years.
