Services & Events

The Princeton Meditation Group is a local branch of Self-Realization Fellowship, a worldwide spiritual organization with headquarters in Los Angeles, California. Self-Realization Fellowship was founded in 1920, by Paramahansa Yogananda, for the purpose of disseminating the SRF teachings which, when put into practice, facilitate harmonious development of body, mind and soul. In Self-Realization Fellowship, meditation, for the purpose of communion with God, is held to be the very foundation of all true religion. The practice of meditation is a part of every SRF service.

If you reside in the surrounding area or are visiting, we would like to invite you to attend our Services and visit our Bookroom.

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda

cropped-AWAKE_home_aboveTrailer_01SEP142

This ground-breaking documentary is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today.
