Self-Realization Fellowship CALENDARDIARY

Welcome to San Diego’s Hidden Gem

“To commune daily with God in deep meditation, and to carry His love and guidance with you into all your dutiful activities, is the way that leads to permanent peace and happiness.”
– Paramahansa Yogananda

What is Self-Realization Fellowship?

SRF is a worldwide religious organization, founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga – a sacred spiritual science which originated in ancient India. Lecture Services held on Sundays and Thursdays at San Diego Temple offer a good introduction to the SRF teachings.

Who is Paramahansa Yogananda?

Swami Yogananda was born Mukunda Lal Ghosh in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. According to his younger brother Sananda, young Mukunda’s awareness and experience of the spiritual was far beyond the ordinary, even from his earliest years.

Weekly Announcements

SUNDAY – JULY 16, 2017


We will be having two services honoring Mahavatar Babaji. The Meditation is next Saturday (July 22) from 10 am to 4 pm. The Commemoration will be on Tuesday, July 25th at 7:00 pm. Please bring a flower, and a free will offering in an envelope, for the devotional offering at the altar during the Service.


Avoid exorbitant parking fees and the woes of L.A. traffic; take the bus with the happy devotees going to and from the SRF World Convocation. Can’t attend the entire week? Then take the day-trip, and be a part of the special programs and opening festivities, to experience the joy of Convocation. Tickets will be available at a suggested donation, on a first-come, first-served basis, after lecture services next Sunday and the following Sunday (July 23 & 30).


The Information Center, by our parking lot, needs volunteers. You must be a Kriyaban member. With a time commitment of only an hour and a half, one Sunday Lecture Service a month, it’s a wonderful way to serve fellow members and welcome newcomers. If you would like to learn more, you are warmly invited to stop by the table to talk to an attendant and fill out a Volunteer Form.


If you have questions regarding the SRF teachings, applying them in daily life, or related topics, it is not too late to put them in the back container or send them from our website, to be answered by the minister this Thursday at 7 pm.


There will be a memorial for Don Cramer, dedicated SRF member who served in temple leadership for several years. All are warmly welcome to attend his Service next Sunday at 12:45 pm and the reception afterwards.


Thank you for being a part of our Service. We hope that you can stay after to enjoy some delightful refreshments. If you are new to the teachings, please stop by the Bookroom at the top of the stairs, or Information Center by our parking lot. We would be happy to meet you and answer any general questions you may have. Our Minister this morning is Brother Prafullananda
