Welcome to the San Francisco Meditation Group of Self-Realization Fellowship. We are a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship, founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920, with international headquarters in Los Angeles.
Our group is open to the public 4 times weekly during our meditation and reading services. All are invited to attend our services and special events.
Paramahansa Yogananda founded Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) to disseminate the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millenniums ago in India.
In India Paramahansa Yogananda's society is known as Yogoda Satsanga Society, or YSS of India.
Central to Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings, which embody a complete philosophy and way of life, are scientific techniques of concentration and meditation that lead to the direct personal experience of God.
Weekly SRF lessons are available to those who would like to study the SRF teachings. These are sent from the SRF international headquarters in Los Angeles, California. The lessons contain techniques for recharging the body, concentration and meditation, and the higher meditation technique of Kriya Yoga, as well as instructions on how to live a balanced material and spiritual life.
For more information we suggest that you visit our Meditation Group or request free literature or books from our online catalog.
As an introduction, we suggest that you read Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. Copies of this spiritual classic are available at the SRF online bookstore, at our group or through most bookstores and libraries.
