You Are Invited!
It is our pleasure to announce that Self-Realization Fellowship monastic disciples will be visiting Washington, D.C., April 3–5, 2020, to meet with members and friends of Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual family.
During this weekend there will be inspirational programs, meditation classes, and a Kriya Yoga initiation. 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.
Please join us for this weekend of inspiration, fellowship and spiritual renewal.
