SRF Lessons Postal Mailings Have Resumed
We are pleased to announce that with the easing of some California stay-at-home restrictions (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), we have been able to reopen the SRF Publications Center and are now able to resume our postal mailings of the printed Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. This includes the series of basic lessons as well as the Kriya Yoga Initiation Series.
You will be mailed one Lesson every two weeks, beginning with whatever Lesson you would have been sent before the interruption in postal mailings. At the same time, your digital Lessons subscription will continue at the rate of one Lesson every two weeks.

Important Update for the 2020 SRF World Convocation
We are very pleased to announce the first fully online Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation. It will be held from Sunday, August 9 through Saturday, August 15, 2020.
Program Offered Free of Charge
Because of the generosity of SRF members and friends who are donating to support this event, we are able to offer this special online Convocation free to all who wish to attend. We are doing this not only to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Self-Realization Fellowship and Kriya Yoga in the West, but also to provide solace, spiritual renewal, and divine fellowship to seekers around the world during these challenging times.

Cancellation of SRF’s Summer Day Program for Children and Teens
Due to ongoing restrictions of the State of California’s “stay at home” orders because of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we will not be able to hold this year’s SRF Summer Day Program for children and teens, which was scheduled for June 22-July 3, 2020.
We look forward to continuing our services to our SRF youth in the coming months through the creation of new online activities for children, and we will share further details with you as soon as possible.

Convocation 2020: Important Announcement
The city of Los Angeles is currently under strict “stay at home” orders because of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Due to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s recent announcement that large public gatherings will not be permitted anytime soon and perhaps not before 2021, and after discussion with the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, we have had to cancel the in-person events for this year’s Convocation.
Though we must cancel our coming together in-person this year, we are going to present a wide range of the 2020 SRF World Convocation events online, transforming this international spiritual gathering into an event capable of reaching thousands more worldwide. Details will be announced soon.

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).

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.
