About Us

"Why shouldn’t you strengthen your own vibrations through fellowship with people seeking Self-realization, and by group meditation with them? This practice will fortify your own spiritual convictions; you will find that many seemingly insuperable barriers in your life will crumble and dissolve in the waters of meditation." – Paramahansa Yogananda in “Seeking God Together”

Welcome to the Atlanta Center of Self-Realization Fellowship. This center is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide religious organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 to teach scientific techniques of meditation that will lead to a direct, personal relationship with God. These techniques are available in a series of weekly lessons sent to your home from our international headquarters in Los Angeles, California. The lessons contain techniques of energization, concentration, meditation, and the higher technique of Kriya Yoga, as well as instructions on how to live a balanced material and spiritual life.

For further information we suggest that you visit our book room located just off the foyer in the Atlanta Center. As an introduction, we suggest that you read Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi. Copies of this spiritual classic are available in the book room or in local bookstores or online as well.
