Welcome to this photo essay of some of the recent visits by SRF monastics to locations around the world.
In Spring 2022 SRF monastics resumed visiting Paramahansa Yogananda’s worldwide spiritual family in cities in the United States and Europe, after such visits had been temporarily paused due to the pandemic. The monks and nuns conducted a wide variety of inspirational events, including lectures and classes on the “how-to-live” teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, weekend retreat programs, group meditations, kirtan devotional chanting, answering spiritual questions in satsanga, and providing individual spiritual counseling.
In May, Brother Ishtananda traveled to the SRF Atlanta Center for an inspirational visit that included classes, meditations, and outdoor social events.
Brother Prafullananda and Brahmachari Bhaskarananda conducted a weekend retreat at the Sacramento Center in May. Activities included review of the SRF meditation techniques, kirtan chanting, informal classes, and a Sunday service.
