Welcome to SRF Atlanta

“Everything else can wait, but your search for God cannot wait.” — Paramahansa Yogananda

The Atlanta Center is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide non-profit religious organization with international headquarters located in Los Angeles, California. SRF was founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda for the purpose of disseminating Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millenniums ago in India, for attaining direct personal experience of God. In India and surrounding countries, Paramahansa Yogananda’s work is known as Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS), which has more than 100 centers, retreats, and ashrams. The Atlanta Center serves families and friends throughout Georgia and the southeastern neighboring states. The Center is open to the public during our services, which are held on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings.


In Memoriam: Sri Mrinalini Mata (1931 - 2017)

Monastic Visit
Dear Friends,

We want to let you know that our beloved president and sanghamata Sri Mrinalini Mata has peacefully left her physical form, on August 3, 2017.

All of us have been deeply blessed by her extraordinary loyalty and attunement to the Guru, and her steadfast dedication – right up to the very end of her life – to getting the sacred teachings of the Guru to his chelas around the world. While we cannot help but feel great sorrow upon receiving this news, we are also comforted to know that she is in the loving presence of the Gurus, and experiencing the infinite bliss of God.

In Divine Friendship,
Center Department

Special Thought for JANMASHTAMI [Birthday of Bhagavan Krishna]

(The birthday of Krishna is celebrated according to the Indian lunar calendar. It falls on the eighth day of the waning moon between mid-August and mid-September)
      He who perceives Me everywhere and beholds everything in Me never loses sight of Me, nor do I ever lose sight of him.
      That Yogi stays forever in Me, who, anchored in divine unity whatever his mode of existence, realizes Me as pervading all beings.
      O Arjuna, the best type of yogi is he who feels for others, whether in grief or pleasure, even as he feels for Himself.
— Bhagavan Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita
