“Self-realization means to know truth through yourself, and not through others. By seeking God first, through Self-realization, all things – strength, power, prosperity, wisdom, health, and immortality – will be added unto you.” … Paramahansa Yogananda

Welcome to the Vancouver Meditation Group of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF). Our group is composed of members and friends of SRF, a worldwide religious organization.

SRF seeks to foster a spirit of greater understanding and goodwill among the diverse peoples and religions of our global family, and to help those of all cultures and nationalities to realize and express more fully in their lives — the beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit.

Paramahansa Yogananda founded SRF in 1920, to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millenniums ago in India. These non-sectarian teachings embody a complete philosophy and way of life for achieving all-round success and well-being; as well as methods of meditation, for achieving life’s ultimate goal — union of the soul with Spirit.

The teachings of Yogananda are available through the printed and online, SRF lessons. Free literature and information about the SRF lessons, is also available in our meditation chapel.

The after-effects of Kriya bring with them the utmost peace and bliss. The joy that comes with Kriya is greater than the joys of all pleasurable physical sensations put together.
Sayings of Yogananda
If you strive to love all and to meditate more deeply, there will come into your life, such love as you never dreamed possible. That is the love that Krishna gave, and that Jesus Christ expressed for all his disciples.
Sayings of Yogananda
Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
Sayings of Yogananda
When you realize that life is a joyous battle of duty and at the same time a passing dream, and when you become filled with the joy of making others happy by giving them kindness and peace, in God’s eyes, your life is a success.
Sayings of Yogananda
God is the whisper in the temple of your conscience, and He is the Light of intuition. You know when you are doing wrong; your whole being tells you, and that feeling is God’s voice.
Sayings of Yogananda
Christ is born in the cradle of each loving heart. So, you must prepare your consciousness to receive Him. Instead of enjoying just the material aspects of this Christmas celebration, make your heart a cradle where Christ can be born again.
