“Prayer: Trusting God in Every Circumstance” by Mukti Mata
November 21, 2020
Mukti Mata (1922 – 2008), a longtime SRF sannyasini who became a disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda in 1945, discusses Paramahansaji’s teaching that prayer is an expression of the soul. She explains that the more we go directly to God with a trusting attitude in prayer, conversing naturally from our heart, the more we build a strong and intimate relationship with the Divine—one which will be a constant source of guidance and support no matter the circumstances of life. Mukti Mata shares stories of her experiences with Paramahansa Yogananda and Paramahansaji’s own use of prayer to draw the help of God.
