Learn to Meditate

Self-Realization Fellowship offers home study lessons in meditation that cover in detail the meditation techniques taught by Paramahansa Yogananda during his lifetime. These lessons are offered to followers of all religions and include a range of “how to live” topics such as the true meaning of friendship, the use of willpower, and how to live in the world without fear and worry.

Personal Guidance

Lessons students can also receive personal guidance in their practice at any time, free of charge, from experienced meditation counselors of the Self-Realization Fellowship Monastic Order, by contacting the international headquarters.

Cost

It was Paramahansa Yogananda’s wish that the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons be easily available to all who sincerely desire to know God. To this end, the Lessons have always been offered for only a nominal fee to help cover printing and postage costs.
