Sydney Meditation Centre of SRF is part of the worldwide spiritual family of Self-Realization Fellowship founded in by Paramahansa Yogananda — to disseminate the ancient science of Kriya Yoga meditation to all nations of the world. Our meditation centre was formed in with the purpose of promoting spiritual growth through group meditation and spiritual fellowship. Since yoga is based on practice and experience rather than on adherence to a particular set of beliefs, followers of all religions can benefit from the spiritual teachings and meditation techniques practiced by SRF. Until we can resume full in-person activities, you may find the Self-Realization Fellowship website and the online meditation centre useful for services, talks and study groups.

In January , the first permanent Kriya Yoga Ashram in the pacific area opened. Set on 4. An ashram is a glorious place for spiritual seekers. It is a place of education and the development of wisdom, a space for meditation and spiritual practice, and a place for seclusion, silence and reflection. Founding an ashram is a way of honouring the masters of Kriya Yoga and especially our beloved Gurudev Paramahamsa Hariharananda by creating a place to truly delve deeply into their teachings. The presence of loving and caring residents living in humility and service — and the flow of students eager to learn and serve — adds to the beauty of an ashram. It is a place that helps you to see the presence of divinity in all; it is a place of practical spirituality.
