2022 SRF World Convocation

Still Available

Join us for a week of spiritual renewal and recharging!

This year's Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation will be online. We are offering a weeklong program of livestreamed classes on Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” teachings and meditation techniques, guided group meditations and kirtans (devotional chanting), virtual pilgrimage tours to the ashrams where the great guru lived and communed with God, and more.

Given the extraordinary nature of the times we are living in, we will be offering Convocation free of charge to ensure that all who wish to participate can do so. While the costs associated with hosting Convocation online are not insignificant, we are confident that through the generosity of those SRF members and friends who are able to help there will be sufficient support to make this possible. We welcome and are deeply grateful for all donations, which can be made at the time of registration and during the event.

We look forward to having you join us for this special program.


Below is a complete schedule of classes that is intended to be a guide for planning your Convocation experience. (In addition to the programs listed here, there will also be virtual pilgrimage tours to SRF ashram centers, as well as other special video programs. Details about these will be added later.) If you are unable to participate in an event at the time it takes place, you are welcome to view it later. All events presented during Convocation week will continue to be available for viewing afterwards.

Enjoy a Convocation welcome video from SRF/YSS President Brother Chidananda (with subtitles).

Transforming Life’s Obstacles Into Stepping Stones for Spiritual Success

The pathways of life are strewn with obstacles that can cause us to stumble or momentarily lose direction. Similarly, on the path toward Self-realization, to walk steadily upon life’s unpredictable journey back to God, the seeker must be able to see, analyze, and use every challenge as a stepping stone for soul unfoldment. This class will focus on how — in this turbulent world with its engrossing challenges of personal relationships, financial difficulties, and societal unrest — we can discover a common denominator of calm, wisdom-guided understanding and positive outlook, to enable us to turn even the most stubborn obstacles into a lighted pathway to spiritual success.

Speaker: Brother Vishwananda

3:30 AM - 4:30 AM

Become a Student of the SRF Lessons

The 2022 SRF Online World Convocation is open to all. However, the three classes on the Energization, Hong-Sau, and Aum Techniques, and guided meditation with technique review are available only to those who are current or past students of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. (Yogoda Satsanga Society of India Lessons students are also welcome, of course.) If you are not a current or past student, we invite you to apply now for the SRF Lessons so that you may participate in the classes on these powerful techniques, which are integral to the science of Kriya Yoga taught by Paramahansa Yogananda.

For residents of India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka, please sign up for the Lessons Through Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (the name by which Paramahansa Yogananda's work is known in these locations).

Apply for the SRF Lessons

All applications for the SRF Lessons receive our personal attention and we ask for your patience. Because of the large numbers attending this Convocation, if you apply now for the Lessons, your access to the classes on the SRF techniques may be delayed. However, all Convocation events — including the technique classes for Lessons students — will be available here to view for some time after the week of Convocation.
