Yoga enables one to solve all problems by soul guidance, the wisdom born of Self-realization.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Dear Friend,

Loving greetings to you!

We hear every day how Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings are making a positive difference in people’s lives — and we thank you for all the ways you support the sharing of that practical wisdom and encouragement with the world.

Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda’s guru, instructed him to “spread to all peoples the knowledge of the self-liberating yoga techniques.” And Paramahansaji founded Self-Realization Fellowship to do just that.

With your support, SRF can introduce more and more people to the Kriya Yoga science of God-realization through:

  • The SRF Lessons and many of Paramahansaji’s writings in multiple languages and formats
  • Group meditation and inspirational services
  • How-to-Live classes for children and teens
  • Our annual World Convocation
  • Monastic visits to SRF centers and groups around the world
  • SRF temples and meditation gardens
  • And more!

As Mahavatar Babaji, the supreme guru in the SRF lineage, revealed to Paramahansa Yogananda: “Kriya Yoga, the scientific technique of God-realization, will ultimately spread in all lands, and aid in harmonizing the nations through man’s personal, transcendental perception of the Infinite Father.”

Your loving support is vital in every aspect of SRF’s efforts to fulfill this mission.

It is our joy to share a selection of messages that we’ve received over the last year from grateful truth-seekers like you, about a variety of offerings that have touched their lives:

Experiencing the Divine Bliss of identifying with my Eternal Soul and connection to the Creator...emotional intelligence has increased tremendously...and my social interactions with others has greatly improved. People around me have noticed the change.

This app will change how visually-impaired devotees are able to access meditations and other SRF/YSS events offered through the app. The new app is changing everything, in the very best of ways.

Attending online meditation has been a blessing in these challenging times. It has brought so much peace, love, and joy to my meditation and in my day-to-day life.

In these difficult times I’m so grateful that I have found the teachings of our Guru — it gives me so much strength. And also to you who have accompanied me throughout the year with lectures and encouragement.

I like the stories, they remind me it is what is inside of me that counts.

Recently I travelled overseas and wanted you to know the great benefit I felt from the online offerings. I downloaded the Bhagavad Gita ebook and read it at the airports and while on the plane, along with the amazing digital version of the Lessons. I was able to view an incredibly inspiring Sunday service entitled ‘There is No Death’ given by Brother Prafullananda. I joined in daily online meditations in the new time zone. I really felt connected with Guruji and my spiritual family during this time due to this added support.

M. M. on SRF’s digital offerings

As you can see, Paramahansaji’s teachings are encouraging people to realize the infinite possibilities that come from applying his universal wisdom in their own lives.
