Washington DC Center of Self-Realization Fellowship


“Today I will seek Thee,
O, Father, as the ever-increasing bliss of meditation.
I will feel Thee as boundless joy
throbbing in my heart.
Finding Thee, I shall find
all things I crave through Thee.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Our services are designed to impart the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and bring devotees together for the practice of group meditation.

Weekly Services Schedule

Our Weekly Services Schedule on Sundays and Thursdays includes readings from the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda and opportunities for devotional chanting and meditation.

Long Meditations

Our Long Meditations on a Saturday once a month allow longer periods of 4 to 7 hours for group meditation and devotional chanting.

Commemorative Services

Our special Commemorative Services occur throughout the year on different days to honor special events in the lives of the SRF line of gurus.

Group meditation is a castle that protects new spiritual aspirants as well as 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.
