Phase One of our fundraising campaign to acquire and renovate a permanent Self-Realization Fellowship temple in the East Bay officially began on September 21, 2015 with a weekend of spiritual fellowship and an launch ceremony.

In addition to the over 300 people in attendance were five monks from our Self-Realization Los Angeles headquarters, Bro. Achalananda,  Bro. Jayananda, Bro. Kalyanananda, Bro. Devananda, and Br. Carl. 

As of April 10, 2016 we have reached our Phase One goal of $3.525 million. 

Phase Two of the campaign – the raising of additional funds for the purchase of ministers’ quarters is now underway.  Our overall goal (Phase One + Phase Two) is $5 million.
