“To commune daily with God in deep meditation, and to carry His love and guidance with you into all your dutiful activities, is the way that leads to permanent peace and happiness.”
– Paramahansa Yogananda

What is Self-Realization Fellowship?

SRF is a worldwide religious organization, founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga – a sacred spiritual science which originated in ancient India. Lecture Services held on Sundays and Thursdays at San Diego Temple offer a good introduction to the SRF teachings.

Who is Paramahansa Yogananda?

Swami Yogananda was born Mukunda Lal Ghosh in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. According to his younger brother Sananda, young Mukunda’s awareness and experience of the spiritual was far beyond the ordinary, even from his earliest years.
