    Access Classes on the SRF Techniques

    Become a Student of the SRF Lessons

    The SRF Online World Convocation is open to all. However, the three classes on the Energization, Hong-Sau, and Aum Techniques, and the special class on Kriya Yoga, are available only to those who are current or past students of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. (Yogoda Satsanga Society of India Lessons students are also welcome, of course.) If you are not a current or past student, we invite you to apply now for the SRF Lessons so that you may participate in the classes on these powerful techniques, which are integral to the science of Kriya Yoga taught by Paramahansa Yogananda.


    Benefits of Convocation

    Sense of Community

    Join others — from all around the world — as we come together to dive deep into Paramahansa Yogananda’s life-transforming teachings and the tangible feeling of Divine Presence — blessings that are the hallmark of Convocation.

    Group Meditations

    Strengthen your ability to meditate more deeply by joining with thousands of seekers as SRF/YSS monastics lead us in practicing this universal science of the soul.

    Inspiration From SRF Monastics

    Our monastic teachers will offer talks on Paramahansa Yogananda’s Kriya Yoga teachings, giving his helpful counsel on how to navigate life’s challenges, as they share their own heartwarming anecdotes about journeying on the spiritual path.

    Recharge Yourself at the Self-Realization Fellowship Convocation

    Each year thousands of SRF/YSS members and spiritual seekers from all over the U.S. and many other countries, ranging from Australia to Zambia, gather for a powerful week of spiritual renewal and rejuvenation at Self-Realization Fellowship's World Convocation. We hope that you can join us this year, in-person or online.

    The first Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation was held by Paramahansaji in 1950 at the SRF Mother Center atop Mt. Washington in Los Angeles. Foreseeing the ever-increasing number of truth-seekers who would participate in this uplifting spiritual event as the years passed, he predicted to those who were present at that occasion:

    They shall come from all parts of the world, thousands and thousands of them, just as you have, for Self-Realization is bringing the original Christianity of Christ and the original Yoga of India's Krishna so that all people of all religions can follow one highway to the Infinite.
