Week of February 11  - February 17, 2019

 "So search for Him night and day.  Nothing can match the experience you will have if you do this.  God is the Goal you seek.  You cannot live without Him.  And all things you desire you will find in Him."

Paramahansa Yogananda

This group is open to all members and friends who wish to read and meditate upon Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita – God Talks with Arjuna.

• This has been an exciting month of milestones for our beloved Guru’s work. Firstly, the much anticipated new edition of the SRF Lessons is now available and we encourage you to enroll for it, if you haven’t already, by going to the Lessons page of the SRF website at yogananda.org. This is the most comprehensive edition of the SRF Lessons ever offered and includes vastly improved organization and wealth of new material from Paramahansa Yogananda that was not previously available, and many other unique features. This new edition is available at a very special introductory price. For details visit yogananda.org.


Secondly, SRF has just unveiled a new, significantly enhanced website, which provides a vastly improved and enriched user experience, featuring an expanded and refined organization of content on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, a larger selection of videos and images, and opportunities for engagement. The new website also has been optimized for mobile platforms. As one long-time member of SRF said, the new website “is like attending a mini-Convocation – you can choose if you want to go to a meditation, attend a kirtan, go to a class or on a pilgrimage.” Please visit yogananda.org to enjoy the new website.


Lastly, the very first, official SRF social media platforms have gone live on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, allowing us to share with thousands of seekers around the world Paramahansaji’s timeless inspiration. We encourage all of you to visit and “like” the pages.


• Please join us this and every Sunday after the services for our weekly juice social in the Sunday School building.
