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."
