Back to Schedule


    It is our pleasure to announce that Self-Realization Fellowship monastic disciples will be visiting Sydney, Australia November 11–13, 2022 to meet with members and friends of Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual family. During these weekends there will be inspirational programs, meditation classes, and Kriya Yoga initiations. You can find the complete schedule of the weekend programs at the bottom of this email. We hope you will be able to join us for this time of divine fellowship – a wonderful opportunity to commune with God and Gurus, and to delve deeper in the understanding and practice of Paramahansaji’s teachings. Even if you cannot come for the whole weekend, we would be glad to have you with us for any of these events.

    You are most welcome to bring family and friends to the inspirational programs. Please note that anyone wishing to attend classes on the meditation techniques will be asked to show a student or Kriyaban card for admittance. Newcomers interested in studying the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda may attend these classes by enrolling for the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons, either before or during the weekend program. Further information and applications for the Lessons are available from the Mother Center, through our website, or at the event itself.

    Important information for SRF Lessons students and Kriyabans wishing to attend the Kriya Yoga Ceremony:

    If you are not yet a Kriyaban and wish to apply for Kriya, we encourage you to submit your Kriya application through the Member Portal no later than August 31, 2022.

    Alternatively, you may complete and mail to the Mother Center the personal report and pledge received with Basic Lesson 17. However, depending on the postal service, it may take some weeks to reach us. Therefore, we ask that you mail the forms no later than August 15, 2022.

    • If you are a Kriyaban and have not attended a Kriya Yoga ceremony: please register by sending an email to Membership Services through Contact Us, or call +1 (818) 549 5151 no later than September 28, 2022.
    • If you have already attended a Kriya Yoga ceremony, you do not need to register for the initiation but will be asked to show your Kriyaban card in order to attend. If you need a replacement card Contact Us by sending an email to Membership Services, or call +1 (818) 549 5151 no later than September 28, 2022.

    It is through your generosity that we are able to bring events like this to truth-seeking souls around the world, and we deeply appreciate any contribution you are able to make — through your meditation group or during the monastics’ visit — to help us continue our efforts to spread Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings.

    We joyously anticipate meeting with you to share the inspiration of our Guru’s soul-revealing teachings. He told us: “Those who sincerely seek Him will surely find Him. Those who want to love the Lord and yearn to enter His kingdom, and who sincerely wish in their hearts to know Him, will find Him. You must have an ever-increasing desire for Him, day and night. He will acknowledge your love by fulfilling His promise to you throughout eternity, and you shall know joy and happiness unending.”

    In divine friendship,


    Mother Center
