    Cultivating Divine Fellowship Around the World

    Each year Self–Realization Fellowship monks and nuns visit cities around the world to help fulfill the ever-growing demand for Paramahansa Yogananda's soul-liberating teachings. They conduct weekend retreats and inspirational programs that include classes on Paramahansaji's "How-to-Live" teachings, review of the SRF yoga techniques, group meditations, kirtan chanting, audio-visual presentations, and Kriya Yoga initiation ceremonies.

    Lecture tours offer an introduction for newcomers to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, and in-depth guidance in the SRF meditation techniques for Lessons students.

    Member programs and regional retreats include classes on the SRF meditation techniques and provide opportunities for group meditation and satsanga (informal talks).

    Programs also cover many other important aspects of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings, such as:

    • The importance of meditation in daily life
    • How to live a more harmonious life
    • Learning to balance inner needs with outer demands
    • Building relationships on a spiritual foundation
    • Making sense of life's inequities
    • Yoga principles of health and healing
    • Understanding death and life–after–death
    • Karma and reincarnation
    • Parallels between the ancient yoga science and the discoveries of modern science
    • The powerful effects of silence and seclusion
    • How each of us can help to create a more compassionate and peaceful world

    Thank you for sending the monastics to instruct, inspire, and encourage us....The healing effect of all monastic visits continues long after the Brothers depart, and I am profoundly grateful for this time of divine communion and fellowship.
