Announcements, February 10, 2019


We begin our announcements with a message from the SRF Center Department: This has been an exciting month of milestones for our beloved Guru’s work. Firstly, the much-anticipated new edition of the SRF Lessons is now available and we encourage you to enroll for it, if you haven’t already, by going to the Lessons page of the SRF website at This is the most comprehensive edition of the SRF Lessons ever offered and includes vastly improved organization and wealth of new material from Paramahansa Yogananda that was not previously available, and many
other unique features. This new edition is available at a very special introductory price. For details visit

Secondly, SRF has just unveiled a new, significantly enhanced website, which provides a vastly improved and enriched user experience, featuring an expanded and refined organization of content on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, a larger selection of videos and images, and opportunities for engagement. The new website also has been optimized for mobile platforms. As one long-time member of SRF said, the new website “is like attending a mini-Convocation – you can choose if you want to go to
a meditation, attend a kirtan, go to a class or on a pilgrimage.” Please visit to enjoy the new website.

Lastly, the very first, official SRF social media platforms have gone live on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, allowing us to share with thousands of seekers around the world Paramahansaji’s timeless
inspiration. We encourage all of you to visit and “like” the pages.

Now, here’s another reminder that the members of the Young Adults Group have decided to resume monthly meetings, with the first one being today, February 17, from 12:30-1:30 PM in the Meeting Room. “Understanding Karma", a video clip presentation by Brother Anandamoy, will be this month’s topic, followed by informal conversation. All young adults are encouraged to attend.

The Sacramento Center’s next Movie Night is this coming Saturday February 23, at 6 PM, following a vegetarian potluck at 5:30 PM. We are showing Peace Pilgrim: An American Sage Who Walked Her Talk, which came out in 2002. This is a story about Mildred Norman, calling herself "Peace Pilgrim," who walked more than 25,000 miles, from 1953 to 1981, on a personal pilgrimage for peace. This hour-long documentary presents an overview of Peace Pilgrim's life and work.

Our next Day of Service is Saturday, March 2, 10 AM, with private meditation at 9:30 AM. A vegetarian lunch will be served at 12:30 PM. Come serve the Guru's organization in Sacramento and be blessed by him for doing so!

The Sunday Afternoon Meditation is canceled today because of the Five-hour Meditation Service yesterday but will resume next Sunday.
