SRF Mother Center
Christmas Open House
Sunday, December 13
Self Realization Fellowship warmly invites you, your family, and friends to a Christmas Open House at the SRF Mother Center on Sunday, December 13, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The Open House provides an opportunity to meet informally with the monastics and each other in the spirit of Christmas fellowship. Light refreshments will be served. This year, the International Headquarters Building and Paramahansa Yogananda's shrine will be open. However, due to new regulations regarding occupancy, visits to the building will now be guided. Guests will be taken in small groups to meditate briefly in the chapel, to visit our founder’s shrine on the third floor, and to view the main hall, Christmas Tree and library before exiting the building. We look forward to greeting you all at this event, and wish you all a blessed Holiday season.
