Services 

Meditation Service

The Meditation Service is held every Sunday morning before the Readings Service, from 8:00 am - 8:45 am. After the opening prayer a short devotional or inspirational reading is taken from one of the SRF publications. This is followed by a period of devotional chanting and then approximately 30-35 mins of silent meditation.

Readings Service

This service occurs every Sunday morning from 9:00 am - 10:00 am. It consists of scriptural readings from the Bible and Bhagavad Gita, a main reading from Paramahansa Yogananda's lectures, and periods of devotional chanting and silent meditation.
