2020 – Centennial Year of Self-Realization Fellowship
The year 2020 marks a profoundly significant milestone in the history of Self-Realization Fellowship — the 100th anniversary of Paramahansa Yogananda’s arrival in America from his native India, and his founding of Self-Realization Fellowship, the worldwide spiritual organization he established to disseminate his Kriya Yoga teachings.
To commemorate this auspicious occasion, SRF is planning a number of special events throughout 2020.
“Group meditation is a castle that protects the new spiritual aspirants as well as the veteran meditators.
Meditating together increases the degree of Self-realization of each member of the group by
the law of invisible vibratory exchange of group magnetism.”
– Paramahansa Yogananda
