A description of our services follows:
INSPIRATIONAL AND PRAYER SERVICE
The Inspirational and Prayer Service is a devotional service with shorter periods of meditation and readings from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Devotees assist the Prayer Council at the Mother Center in its task of praying for world peace and for those in every nation who request healing of physical illness, mental disharmony and spiritual ignorance. Devotees may also pray for their loved ones, as well as for divine aid in overcoming any personal difficulties.
The Meditation Service provides members and Lesson students with an opportunity to practice together the methods of concentration and meditation taught in the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. The flame of one match is small and weak; the fire from many matches is large and strong. This service includes periods of silent meditation up to 50 minutes.
As well as spreading the technique of Kriya Yoga, Paramahansa Yogananda's mission also included pointing out the fundamental unity between Christ's teachings in the Bible and the Yoga teachings of Bhagavan Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita. Passages from the Scripture interpretations and other writings of Paramahansa Yogananda are included in the Readings Service. The inspirational readings, together with chanting and meditation, make up a balanced service that meets the needs of both long-time SRF members and those who are new to the path. This service is well suited to the general public with shorter periods of meditation.
Special Commemoration Services are held to honour the Gurus of Self-Realization Fellowship. All who are well enough acquainted with SRF teachings to appreciate the significance of the Guru-disciple relationship are welcome to participate in the service with sincerity and reverence. Those who attend birthday or mahasamadhi services should bring a flower as a symbol of their devotion and a monetary offering in an envelope as a symbol of their loyalty.
