THE SACRAMENTO CENTER is composed of members and friends of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide nonprofit religious organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920. The aim of Self Realization Fellowship is direct communion with God in meditation through the practice of Kriya Yoga, an ancient and sacred scientific technique of meditation.


For further information we suggest that you visit our Center at 4513 North Avenue in Sacramento where you can find free literature as well as a collection of books, CDs, DVDs, and devotional items available for sale at our bookstore or loan through our lending library.  If you are new to SRF, we suggest reading Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi, a spiritual classic which is available at our Center bookstore and at the SRF Bookstore.

Welcome to Sacramento Center

Our Center serves spiritual seekers in the greater Sacramento area offering regular weekly inspirational reading and meditation services that are open to the public. The Center provides a meeting place for members to share and practice the teachings of SRF and serve our Guru's work together. Please see our schedule of weekly inspirational and meditation services.

Re:  Coronavirus Update for Our Temples, Centers, Groups, Circles, and Retreats

We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus), and are aware of the uncertainty felt by so many worldwide. After much prayerful consideration about what the right course of action should be, we have made the decision to cancel all SRF meditation and inspirational services at our temples, centers, and groups in the US and in other countries where the government has suggested we do so.  We have also cancelled all retreat programs, until further notice. 

Update: in the middle of June 2020, we conducted a survey regarding the prospect of re-opening.  Another one was completed on November 7.  You can view the results.

Though we will not be holding services at the Center, SRF does have regular online meditations that you can participate in.  Also, there are online inspirational services available to view anytime.

For those who would like to continue to make general donations to our Center while services are suspended, you can use the PayPal button below or send a check to the Center.


Note: All scheduled SRF activities, except the SRF Online Meditation Center, are canceled until further notice.
