Welcome To The London Centre
Of Self-Realization Fellowship
The Centre is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide non-profit religious organization with international headquarters in Los Angeles, California. For more than eighty-five years, SRF has been dedicated to carrying on the spiritual and humanitarian work of its founder, Paramahansa Yogananda, widely revered as the father of Yoga in the West.
The society 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.
Paramahansa Yogananda founded Self-Realization Fellowship in 1920 to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millenniums ago in India. These nonsectarian teachings embody a complete philosophy and way of life for achieving all-round success and well-being, as well as methods of meditation for achieving life’s ultimate goal — union of the soul with Spirit (God).
If you are new to SRF, we suggest reading Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi. Copies of this spiritual classic are available at our chapel, in bookstores, public libraries, and online at the SRF Bookstore.
