“Self-realization is the knowing — in body, mind, and soul — that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it comes to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda —

Welcome to
Self-Realization Fellowship
Glendale Temple

Temple 03 front.jpgNestled in the sunny hills of Glendale, California, this temple is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship, the international nonprofit society founded by one of the preeminent spiritual figures of our time — Paramahansa Yogananda.

Since its inception in 1920, Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) has introduced truth-seekers worldwide to India’s age-old philosophy of Yoga and its time-honored tradition of meditation.

The Glendale Temple is the result of a generous gift to SRF and to all truth-seekers.   Everyone is welcome to attend our weekly public lectures, meditations, Sunday School classes for children, and other events aimed to disseminate the timeless teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and help us create spiritually harmonious lives and a more compassionate and peaceful world.

One Day Retreat for Lessons Students (June 24) 
A one-day retreat for Glendale temple devotees will be held at the Glendale Temple from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   Do not miss this special opportunity to spend a day dedicated to silence and focus on the techniques of meditation. If you are planning to attend please sign up in the West Lobby.  The day will include periods of meditation, classes on the meditation techniques and an SRF film.  We will provide beverages, but please bring a sack lunch. Your SRF Student Card is required to attend.

We welcome you in the Social Hall after this Sunday service and invite you to introduce yourself to others. Refreshments will be served.  

Open Meditation
Second-Christ-Meditating.jpg An open, un-led meditation will be held every Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Small Chapel, and every Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary.  All are welcome.  You may enter at any time.  

Study Group
Glendale Temple’s scripture Study Group reads The Second Coming of Christ every Tuesday evening in the Small Chapel.  The evening begins with an open meditation from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., followed by the Study Group from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The Second Coming of Christ is Paramahansa Yogananda’s commentary on the teachings of Christ.  It demonstrates the unity between the revelations of the Christian Bible, the Bhagavad Gita, and all other time-tested true scriptures.  No prior reading is necessary, and copies of The Second Coming will be provided for you to use. You may join us for one evening or on an ongoing basis.  All are welcome.

donate_thank.jpgWe are now accepting donations for expenses incurred from work on the hillside behind the temple from the fire in 2013. These funds will be used to support the mud control and mitigation efforts of cleaning up the mud that spills into the parking lot after heavy rains. Donations we receive in response to this appeal will be deposited into the Glendale Temple Building Fund at the Mother Center and will be used to support these efforts. It may also be used to cover other expenses which are not typically funded through our operating budget. For more details and information click here or the image to the right.
