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

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.

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.
