Brother Satyananda has served as a monk in the monastic order of Paramahansa Yogananda’s Self-Realization Fellowship for more than 40 years. In this episode, Jeff and Satyanda discuss how Yogananda helped bring yoga to the West, what happens when you apply scientific principles to the mystical, and how connection to the divine manifests as bliss and joy.
