Service Topics

Sunday Services

At our temples and meditation centers around the world, weekly inspirational services offer you an opportunity to meet with other truth-seekers to commune with God and share spiritual fellowship. These services include readings from Paramahansa Yogananda's writings, as well as periods of devotional chanting, silent meditation, and prayer. Monastics of the Self-Realization Order regularly give the services at our temples, and SRF lay members lead services at the meditation centers.
