Welcome to the Self-Realization Fellowship Hollywood Temple's website! If you are new to Hollywood Temple and would like to learn more about us, please visit our Welcome page.
New to Meditation?
Meditation is the science of reuniting the soul with the Infinite Spirit, God. By meditating regularly and deeply, you will awaken your soul — the immortal, blissful divine consciousness at the innermost core of your being.
If you would like to learn more about meditation, visit our Meditation page for more information.
Question About the SRF Teachings?
If you have a question about Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings, you are welcome to submit it anonymously on our website, and a Minister will answer your question at an upcoming Satsanga Service.
Monks and nuns of the Self-Realization Fellowship Prayer Council pray daily for all those who request prayers for physical, mental, and spiritual healing and for world peace.
Conducted Long Meditations
Hollywood Temple invites you to attend our conducted long meditations every Friday from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. and Sundays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The Friday evening meditations are with kirtan (devotional chanting). Both newer and veteran yogis are encouraged to participate as we find that group meditations greatly benefit our individual practice.
Both long meditation services are preceded by group practice of the Energization Exercises, at 6:40 p.m. on Fridays and at 5:40 p.m. on Sundays. If you are new to group meditations, please read our Guidelines for Group Meditations.
"To commune daily with God in deep meditation, and to carry His love and guidance with you into all your dutiful activities, is the way that leads to permanent peace and happiness."

A message from SRF Mother Center:
We are happy to share with you the launch of the French-language edition of our SRF website, www.yogananda-srf.org. Readers can now view our website in French by using the dropdown menu located in the top right-hand corner of the website (and change back to English by selecting “English” from the same dropdown menu). Readers whose browsers default to French will see the French -language homepage automatically.
Many thanks to our French Translations team, Web team, and IT Department for all their work on this new addition to the SRF website, which will provide our Guru’s inspiration, as well as information about SRF, to our worldwide French-speaking family.
This is the fourth language, following Spanish, German, and Portuguese into which the SRF website has now been translated. Projects for translation of our website into yet more languages are currently underway.
