What is Convocation?

Convocation is an opportunity to deepen one's understanding of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings and to receive the tools and inspiration necessary for spiritual growth. The annual weeklong event includes:

  • In-depth instruction on the science of meditation taught by Paramahansa Yogananda
  • “How-to-Live” classes
  • Pilgrimage tours to shrines associated with the life and work of Paramahansa Yogananda
  • Kirtans and group meditations
  • Individual counseling with SRF monastics
  • Kriya Yoga initiations
  • and more.

Participate in a week of spiritual fellowship, meditation, kirtan, and the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, the father of Yoga in the West.

Each year thousands of members and spiritual seekers from all over the U.S. and many other countries ranging from Australia to Zambia gather for a powerful week of spiritual renewal and rejuvenation at Self-Realization Fellowship's World Convocation.

The main events are held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, whose gleaming glass towers are completely filled with joyous meditating devotees and transformed into a dynamic spiritual pilgrimage place by the early-morning to late-evening weeklong program. Events include twice-daily group meditations, classes on Paramahansaji's "How-to-Live" teachings, kirtans (devotional chanting), Kriya Yoga initiations, audio/video presentations, workshops for SRF centers and meditation groups worldwide, opportunities for individual counseling on the teachings with monks and nuns, and pilgrimages to the ashram centers where Paramahansa Yogananda lived and communed with God.

The first Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation, was held by Paramahansaji in 1950 at the SRF Mother Center. Foreseeing the ever-increasing number of truth-seekers who would participate in this uplifting spiritual event as the years passed, he predicted to those who were present at the first one:

"They shall come from all parts of the world, thousands and thousands of them, just as you have, for Self-Realization is bringing the original Christianity of Christ and the original Yoga of India's Krishna so that all people of all religions can follow one highway to the Infinite."

Join us in reliving some of the joyous moments of past years' Convocations in the links above and below.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Convocation!
