Washington DC Center of Self-Realization Fellowship


April 14th, 2024

We are grateful to monastics from the Greenfield Retreat for leading our services today. Light refreshments will be served after the service. All are welcome to join us.

Only for this month, the Sunday School will be held on the second and third Sundays of the month to accommodate the 2024 Center Tour. The Sunday School class on April 14 will mfocus on Easter. The Sunday School class on April 21 will be led by Brahmachari Neil in the bookroom at 11 am.

We are pleased to announce that Self-Realization Fellowship monastics – Brother Govindananda and Brahmachari Neil, will be visiting Washington D.C., April 19–21, 2024, on their Center Tour to meet with members and friends of Paramahansa Yoganandaji’s spiritual family. During the weekend, there will be inspirational programs, meditation classes, and a Kriya Yoga initiation. We have about 120 devotees registered for the Kriya ceremony including new initiates and seasoned Kriyabans. We are requesting that some of the seasoned Kriyabans from our Center please sit in the overflow room to allow out-of-town devotees seating in the main chapel for the Kriya ceremony.

Call for marketing distribution help from all devotees: Please help us spread the word about the 2024 Center Tour by taking a few fliers (kept in the lobby) to post around your local cafes, yoga studios, anywhere else where people may be receptive to Guruji’s message.

During the Center Tour, the monastics will offer wedding and christening services. There will also be a Satsang. If you are interested in any of the two services or have Satsang questions, please email Washington.DC.SRF@Gmail.com . You can also provide Satsang questions by writing them on the designated sheet in the lobby.

The seasoned Kriyabans who have attended an in-person Kriya ceremony before and would like to attend the Kriya Ceremony during the 2024 April Center Tour are requested to sign the sheet on the table in the lobby.

The Greenfield Retreat will host a weekend retreat on April 26-28. Please visit the SRF Greenfield website for more details and other events that are being offered in April.

Jai Guru.


When you go to an SRF temple or center, let it be for one purpose: to be with God. Do not go for the words, do not go for the singing. Go to feel His presence by meditation!
