    Commemorative Services in SRF

    In Self-Realization Fellowship, certain commemorative services are conducted throughout the year to honor the enlightened gurus in the SRF lineage.

The spiritual lineage of SRF consists of these two great avatars and a line of exalted masters of contemporary times: Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, and Paramahansa Yogananda (last in the line of SRF Gurus).
