Weekly & Special Services

Attend weekly meditation and inspirational services near you.

Online Inspirational Services

Currently we are offering a new online inspirational service each week, led by an SRF or YSS monastic. These programs include meditation, chanting, and a talk on Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings. Through the services presented here, you can join Paramahansa Yogananda’s worldwide spiritual family in weekly divine fellowship.

“How-to-Live Inspiration”

In this video, SRF minister Brother Satyananda offers perspective and gives advice on how to develop a balanced spiritual routine at this time when so many around the world must stay at home.

“Spiritual Strength in Times of Crisis”

Brother Bhumananda speaks on “Spiritual Strength In Times of Crisis,” recorded at the SRF Mother Center on March 23, 2020.  

In this talk he draws upon the guidance and understanding of Sri Daya Mata, Brother Chidananda, and other disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda. He explains how we can deal with the challenges of our current times with courage, faith, positive thinking, thereby bringing out our highest soul qualities: “The crisis itself is not the most important thing. What is most important is how we respond to the crisis.”

“Freeing Your Consciousness From Worry”

“Freeing Your Consciousness From Worry” by Brother Satyananda was recorded at the SRF Lake Shrine Temple on February 2, 2020.  

Though recorded before the current escalation of the coronavirus epidemic, Brother Satyananda’s talk provides uplifting wisdom and inspiration for maintaining inner peace and equilibrium during stressful and challenging times.

Weekly Services

At our temples and meditation centers around the world, weekly inspirational services offer you an opportunity to meet with other truth-seekers to commune with God and share spiritual fellowship. These services include readings from Paramahansa Yogananda’s writings, as well as periods of devotional chanting, silent meditation, and prayer. Self-Realization Fellowship monastics regularly give the services at our temples, and SRF lay members lead services at the meditation centers.

All of our temples and many of our meditation centers also offer Sunday School classes for children ages 3–12, presenting Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” spiritual principles for children.
