The Six Hour meditations consist of periods of silent mediation lasting approximately 40 – 45 minutes.
Chanting, accompanied by the temple kirtan group, occurs between meditation periods.
To provide the optimum meditation experience, silence from all vocal sounds and stillness of physical movements is requested.
Please review the SRF meditation guidelines. If it is necessary to leave the chapel, please do so only during chanting.
The meditation begins with the SRF Energization Exercises which were developed by Paramahansa Yogananda. Participation is optional.

The Woolsey Street door will open at 2:00 pm.
Due to Saturday traffic and neighborhood parking we recommend planning to arrive early.
Learn to Meditate Class
Sunday, October 20 | 10:00 am | Main Chapel
In an effort to make the Learn to Meditate Class accessible to more people, the temple will hold the Class during the usual Sunday Meditation.
