In this episode of Intersections, Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa has a conversation with Brother Satyananda on the topic “Self-Realization: The Key to Tackling Life’s Hardest Questions”.

The unrest, change and insecurity that are rocking our world today have made many of us step back to reflect on deeper questions we may have thought about as teenagers - but which may then have fallen by the wayside. What is the true purpose of my life? Will I ever find a path to everlasting happiness in an impermanent and unreliable world? What is my highest potential, and how do I get there?

"Choose something you love to do. Find a way to use it to serve others. And then, offer it to God.“
Brother Satyananda
