Monastic Visit and Special Events

Each year Self–Realization Fellowship monks and nuns visit our center to help fulfill the ever-growing demand for Paramahansa Yogananda's soul-liberating teachings. They conduct inspirational programs, group meditations, kirtan chanting and meet/greet devotees as well.
