Weekly & Special Services

Attend weekly meditation and inspirational services near you.

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.
