– Paramahansa Yogananda
Since 1920, Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) has been dedicated to carrying on the spiritual and humanitarian work of its founder, Paramahansa Yogananda, widely revered as the father of Yoga in the West.
SRF is a worldwide spiritual organization with international headquarters in Los Angeles. It is the source for the universal, nonsectarian teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. The society seeks to foster a spirit of greater understanding and goodwill among the diverse peoples and religions of our global family, and to help those of all cultures and nationalities to realize and express more fully in their lives the beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit.
Among the principal activities of Self-Realization Fellowship is the creation and oversight of temples, centers, and meditation groups around the world. There are currently more than 800 such locations on six continents, where practitioners come together for yoga meditation as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda. (Centers and activities in India and surrounding countries are part of our sister organization, Yogoda Satsanga Society of India.
