Paramahansa Yogananda encouraged devotees to have longer meditations on a regular basis. Our monthly five hour meditation provides the devotee an opportunity to practice for longer periods the SRF meditation techniques, sitting in the silence, and practicing devotion with others of like mind. This meditation consists of group practice of the SRF energization and meditation techniques, interspersed with readings and chanting. All are welcome to attend for all or part of the meditation. Our guru had this to say about group meditation:

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