YSS Paramahansa Yogananda Smriti Mandir Meditation With Kirtan | 2020 SRF Online World Convocation | August 12


Join Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS) monks for a special “Centennial Meditation and Kirtan” live from the Smriti Mandir at the Yogoda Satsanga Sakha Math, Ranchi, as part of the 2020 SRF Online World Convocation. This event will take place as part of the Day 3 (Tuesday) schedule for Convocation.

The mandir stands on the spot at the Ranchi ashram where Paramahansa Yogananda, in 1920, had a vision of his American disciples that inspired his worldwide mission to spread the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga to people of all religions, creeds, and nationalities.

The 2020 Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation is a week of online classes, meditations, virtual pilgrimages to ashram centers where Yogananda lived, kirtans (devotional chanting), and more—offering all seekers of higher consciousness and balanced spiritual living a unique experience of peace and joy.

This year SRF is honoring the 100th anniversary of Yogananda’s arrival in the West and the beginning of his worldwide work. In celebration of this milestone, the 2020 Convocation—a truly worldwide event—is being offered to all for free.

Paramahansa Yogananda viewed the Self-Realization/Yogoda Satsanga Lessons as the very core of the teachings he was ordained to bring to the world as a special spiritual dispensation for the coming global civilization.
