About SRF

“Self-realization is the knowing — in body, mind, and soul — that we are one with the omnipresence of God…” — Paramahansa Yogananda

Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) is 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 religious organization with international headquarters in Los Angeles. It 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.
