Self-Realization Fellowship Easter Services
Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) temples in Southern California will explore the true meaning of resurrection during Sunday morning services on Easter.
In 2019, Easter is celebrated on April 21.
Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of SRF and author of Autobiography of a Yogi, said: “…Resurrection does not mean only resurrection of the body, but the ascension of the soul from all three bodily encasements [physical, astral, and causal] to live immortally in oneness with the whole universe.”
The Self-Realization Fellowship Easter services will include a meditation and an inspirational talk on Yogananda’s revelatory perspective on resurrection. For more information about a service in your area, please visit these temple websites: Lake Shrine, Hollywood, Glendale and Fullerton.
Paramahansa Yogananda on Resurrection
“Resurrection has been well understood by accomplished yogis of India since the dawn of the highest ages. Jesus himself was a realized yogi: one who knew and had mastered the spiritual science of life and death, God-communion and God-union, one who knew the method of liberation from delusion into the kingdom of God. Jesus showed throughout his life and death his power of complete mastery over his body and mind and the oft-recalcitrant forces of nature. We understand resurrection in its true sense when we comprehend the yoga science that clearly defines the underlying principles by which Jesus resurrected his crucified body into the freedom and light of God.”
