Supplement Lessons Series


Supplement Lessons Series

Available to students who have completed the basic series of YSS Lessons  

Many years ago Paramahansa Yogananda said that the new Lessons should provide followers of this path with a continuous stream of inspiration throughout their lives.  

The Supplement Lessons feature valuable guidance and instruction from Paramahansa Yogananda that expand on the how-to-live principles and meditation techniques you received in the basic series of YSS Lessons, and provide a wealth of new guidance, inspiration, and additional techniques to deepen your spiritual life. 

This series of Lessons includes material from previously unpublished talks and writings of Paramahansa Yogananda as well as from earlier editions of the Lessons. 


The Supplement series features a wide range of topics to enhance and strengthen your practice of our Guru’s meditation techniques and how-to-live teachings, such as:

  • Deepening your personal relationship with God
  • Mastering the power of concentration
  • How to deepen your meditations 
  • Cultivating prosperity and success 
  • Harmonizing body, mind, and soul 
  • Health and healing 
  • Understanding death and reincarnation 
  • Spiritualizing business life 
  • Feeling God’s presence 
  • Overcoming pain and sorrow 
  • How to get along with others 
  • Affirmations and prayers 
  • Guided meditations and visualizations 
  • And much more

There are approximately 90 Lessons in the Supplement series. They range from 12 pages to 32 pages with most falling between 16 and 24 pages.

Four Supplement Lessons will be mailed every two months. To ensure timely and reliable delivery, all Supplement Lessons will be sent by special postage.

The Supplement Lessons continue Paramahansaji’s teachings on meditation and spiritual living. Those who feel they have benefited from studying the basic series will also get much out of continuing their studies of the YSS/SRF “how-to-live” teachings presented in the Supplement series.

There are many ways to organize your lessons such as binders, magazine storage bins, a box or accordion folders. We suggest you use some means to organize your YSS Lessons to protect them and for easy access. While YSS is not offering binders or other organizers at this time, they are readily available at local or online office supply retailers.
