Natural Awakenings New York City

Self-Realization Fellowship Offers Yogic Resources for Cultivating Calm

Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), an international nonprofit and the parent organization of the New York City Center of Self-Realization Fellowship on East 28th Street, is offering free online resources to help people cultivate a sense of calm and resilience during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The key focus is the ancient science of yoga—a philosophy and practice that provides simple tools for building lasting inner peace, clarity and strength regardless of outward conditions.

Among the available resources are live online group meditations and spiritual study groups;
affirmations and prayers; live-streamed talks and inspirational services; and wisdom from the How-to-Live teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who founded SRF in 1920 and wrote Autobiography of a Yogi. These offerings can be found at SRF Online Resources .

Brother Chidananda, SRF president and spiritual head, recently said, “Let us be those souls who, years from now, look back on these difficult times and say, ‘Yes, that was when I seized the opportunity to bring out and manifest the results of my years of spiritual study and efforts at self- improvement. That was when I made the inner leap from just thinking about the spiritual qualities I hoped to achieve someday to actually living them.’”
