Paramahansa Yogananda expressed that the spirit of the organization that he founded (Self-Realization Fellowship) had to be that of bringing together and giving space to all sincere souls who seek the truth, regardless of age, sex, religion or social condition. Also, he said that SRF should be the church of all religions.
Thus, our meditation centers are open to anyone who respects silence and seeks divine communion, although most of the assistants follow the meditation instructions that Paramahansa Yogananda describes in his lessons.
His teachings are studied and practiced at home. But he recommended that at least once a week his disciples gather together to meditate together, as this reinforces the spiritual path. In this regard he said:
“Meditate with good companions. They will help you to churn the butter of Self-realization from the milk of your mind. Milk mixes with the waters of worldly delusion and cannot float above them. Butter readily floats on those treacherous waters.”
