Welcome to the Leicestershire Meditation Circle of Self-Realization Fellowship website. We are composed of devoted members and friends of Self-Realization Fellowship, a worldwide nonprofit religious organization with international headquarters in Los Angeles California. We meet usually once a week on a Thursday evening to meditate together for around one hour and twenty minutes. See our schedule. Non-members are welcome.

Self-Realization Fellowship was founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda for the purpose of disseminating Kriya Yoga, a definite scientific technique for attaining direct personal experience of God.

Through its worldwide service and teachings, Self-Realization Fellowship seeks to awaken greater understanding of the harmony underlying all true religions, and a fuller expression in this world of the love that unites all people when they realize their oneness in God.

SRF lessons are available to those who would like to study the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. The lessons are sent in printed form from SRF international headquarters in Los Angeles, California. They contain techniques for recharging the body, concentration and meditation, and the higher technique of Kriya Yoga, as well as instructions on how to live a balanced material and spiritual life.

Autobiography of a Yogi is an excellent introduction to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Renowned as a spiritual classic it has, over the last 60 years, been translated into 26 languages. It is available from bookstores or on-line.

“Group meditation is a castle that protects the new spiritual aspirant as well as the veteran meditator.  Meditating together increases the degree of Self-realization of each member of the group by the law of invisible vibratory exchange of magnetism.” -

Paramahansa Yogananda
