Paramahansa Yogananda’s 125th Birth-Anniversary Celebration

This year marks the 125th anniversary of one of the preeminent spiritual figures of modern times, Paramahansa Yogananda. Born January 5, 1893, he is widely recognized as the father of yoga in the West and established his nonprofit Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) in 1920 to teach scientific techniques of yoga meditation. On Wednesday, May 23 from 7 to 9 p.m., a long-time monk of the SRF Order, Brother Saralananda, will give a public talk based on the teachings of Sri Yogananda entitled “Finding Inner Peace Through Meditation.” The presentation will offer insights and practical advice on how yoga meditation works in one’s life. The lecture will also include a guided meditation.

Paramahansa Yogananda’s life story, Autobiography of a Yogi, recognized as one of the most influential spiritual books of the 20th century, and numerous other writings, continues to inspire millions. An award-winning documentary of his life, AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda, was released in 2014.

Admission to the presentation is free and all are welcomed.

Location: Hyatt Regency Princeton, 102 Carnegie Center, Princeton. For more information, call 609-731-1849 or 609-937-4721, or visit PrincetonMeditationGroup.org. For more information about Paramahansa Yogananda and Self-Realization Fellowship, visit Yogananda-SRF.org.
