COVID-19 Update: April 2, 2020
SRF Lessons Available in Digital Format Only
As a result of the State of California Stay-at-Home Order, we are temporarily unable to send out any printed mailings, including the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons and all other physical publications and products. However, during this time period, we will continue to offer the English-language edition of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons to SRF students in digital form via a proprietary app that is available for Apple (iOS) and Android devices. Learn more about the app.
This means you will be able to receive new Lessons as per our regular schedule, and will be able to read and study them on your digital device. You will also be able to access the valuable auxiliary material that accompanies each Lesson.
When we are able to resume operations at our Publications Center, all Lessons that you have received in digital form will be mailed to you in printed form. Under normal circumstances, we encourage you to use the printed version of the Lessons as your primary source of spiritual study. But we are grateful that the digital app makes it possible for you to receive the Lessons even during the temporary shutdown.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. Please know that we hold you in our prayers, and that God and the Great Ones are surrounding you with their ever-existing divine love and protection.
SRF Lessons Applications Are Still Being Processed
While we are not able to send out any printed mailings during this time, we are continuing to process new applications for the SRF Lessons, and you are welcome to apply. We will notify you as soon as the printed Lessons can be mailed out again. However, as mentioned above, during this time period, students of the English Lessons will be able to read them on the SRF Lessons app. New Lessons will become unlocked in the app for Lessons students to view every two weeks.
Is SRF offering online or streaming services during the coronavirus outbreak?
During the current difficult times—in which SRF temples, centers, and groups have had to temporarily cancel Sunday services—we will be offering inspirational services online. View this week’s service.
We also offer daily online livestreamed group meditations at the SRF Online Meditation Center.

I have finished Lesson 18 in the basic series of the SRF Lessons — what is my next step?
Kriya Yoga Lessons
If you are already a Kriyaban and have not yet enrolled for the new edition of the Kriya Yoga Lessons, we invite you to do so now.
If you are not yet a Kriyaban, you are now eligible to apply for initiation in Kriya Yoga (information about applying for Kriya Yoga was included with Lesson 17).
Supplement Lessons and Satsanga With Paramahansa Yogananda Series
The Supplement Lessons are scheduled to be released later this year. Information about subscribing to them will be sent to all students of the new edition of the SRF Lessons closer to their release date over the next several months.
The release date for the Satsanga With Paramahansa Yogananda series has not yet been determined, but will be announced at a later time on our website and through email communications. Descriptions of these additional offerings can be found in the Lessons section of our website.
