This temple is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship, founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 to disseminate the scientific method of Kriya Yoga Meditation.
Self-Realization Fellowship

If you want to know more about Self-Realization Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda, and his Kriya Yoga teachings, we recommend that you read his spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, first published in 1946.

You may want to explore the SRF Mother Center site, and sign up for the weekly SRF Lessons, or read about the aims and ideals of Self-Realization Fellowship.

Fullerton Temple conducts public lecture services on Thursday evenings at 8:00 pm and Sunday mornings at 11:00 am. All are welcome.

You are welcome to submit a prayer request for yourself, your family, or friends. Monastics as well as lay members pray for those in need and for our world family as a whole.

Services and Meditations
Fullerton Temple offers regular meditations and lecture services that are open to the public. All are welcome. Our lecture services are led by monastics of the Self-Realization Order. Service topics are based on Paramahansa Yogananda's writings. The services also include periods of devotional chanting, silent meditation, and prayer.

Our group meditations offer devotees a chance to come together in silent fellowship to reinforce each other's efforts toward Self-realization. The meditation service is led by a leader who guides you through periods of silent meditation for 30-45 minutes in length, separated by short periods of devotional chanting and inspirational readings.

Group meditation services are also conducted on Sunday morning prior to the regular lecture service and on Saturday evenings.
