How I Started With Self-Realization Fellowship

    In 1970, my little brother spent the summer with cousins in Malibu, California. He heard of something called enlightenment and found a list of organizations that offered meditation. He saw that the oldest and most established organization was Self-Realization Fellowship. But he was most attracted to SRF by Autobiography of a Yogi and Paramahansa Yogananda's picture on the cover.

    He was 14 at the time, and I was not immediately interested. Over the next three years I observed noble qualities blossom in my brother, Daniel. I saw him meditating in the backyard. I heard him practicing exercises (energization) in our room. And slowly I became aware of a better way to live.

    He passed away in 1980 and I've always been grateful for his incarnation.
