The online event will be in English with subtitles in multiple languages, including German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Led by monks and nuns of SRF, the immersive program provides meditations, united prayer, kirtan (sacred chanting), classes on the yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, and virtual pilgrimage tours to sacred sites established by Yogananda.

Widely regarded as the father of Yoga in the West, Yogananda helped popularize India’s ancient science of Yoga through the transcontinental public lecture tours he made in the U.S. during the 1920s and 1930s, through his nonprofit Self-Realization Fellowship, and through his many published writings. His spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, ranks as one of the :20 most popular autobiographies of all time.” 

The 2021 Online Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation features: A full program of meditations and classes on the “How-to-Live” teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, including daily talks on how to apply yogic principles to one’s life on such topics as “The Liberating Power of Positive Thinking and Enthusiasm,” “Being a Spiritual Seeker in Today’s Complex World,” “Faith: A CornerStone of our Spiritual Lives,” and “Meditation: A Journey to Spiritual Freedom”; Classes on the SRF meditation techniques, open to all current and graduate students of the SRF Lessons as well as to those who enroll in the Lessons; A special talk on Autobiography of a Yogi to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Yogananda’s global, spiritual classic; group meditations and kirtans; virtual pilgrimage tours to SRF locations established by Yogananda.

The 2021 Online SRF World Convocation will originate mostly from the international headquarters of SRF in Los Angeles, where Yogananda lived and worked from 1925 until his passing in 1952. Those interested in the meditation technique classes may enroll in the SRF Lessons in advance in order to attend these specific classes.
