24 Hour Centennial Meditation

To help celebrate its Centennial, Self-Realization Fellowship held a special 24-hour meditation service beginning Saturday, September 19, at 10:00 a.m. (PDT). 

September 19 marked the 100th anniversary of the historic day Paramahansa Yogananda arrived in the United States to begin his mission of spreading the science of Kriya Yoga throughout the world.  

The first hour of this special meditation service was led by Brother Chidananda, president of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (the name by which Paramahansaji’s work is known in India). Senior monastics of SRF and YSS led the remaining portions.  

In addition to periods of silence, the meditation service included:
