A beautiful, life affirming meditation by Paramahansa Yogananda

Jul 29, 2010

Paramahansa Yogananda

Posted by Kimmy Sophia Brown

Paramahansa Yogananda, (January 5, 1893–March 7, 1952), was born in India. He showed extraordinary spirituality as a young man and later founded The Self-Realization Fellowship.

I will light the match of smiles. My gloom veil willdisappear. I shall behold my soul in the light of smiles hidden behind the accumulated darkness of ages. When I find myself, I shall race through all hearts with the torch of my soul-smiles. My heart will smile first, then my eyes, then my face. Every body part will shine in the light of smiles.

I will run amid the thickets of melancholy hearts and makea bonfire of all sorrows. I am the irresistible fire of smiles. I will fan myself with the breeze of God-joy and blaze my way through the darkness of all minds. My smiles will convey His smiles and whoever meets me will catch a whiff of my divine joy. I will carry fragrant, purifying torches of smiles for all hearts.
