Self-Realization Fellowship in Mt. Washington

Yoga isn’t just about working out; yoga is also a form of meditation that treats the body and the mind. The Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) in Mt. Washington is the international headquarters for the organization.

You can visit the Self-Realization Fellowship at Mt. Washington (at 3880 San Rafael Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90065). Take a stroll through the gardens, or practice meditation outside in peace. There is also a meditation room you can visit while there.

Self Realization Temple

All people are welcome to visit the Self-Realization Fellowship at Mt. Washington. Keep in mind though that this location is mostly an administration center. If you wish to visit a temple, consider visiting another location in the Los Angeles area.

The SRF is a worldwide organization centered around the religious practices of Paramahansa Yogananda (also known as Yoga). The organization is made up of 500 temples around the world in more than 100 different countries, and it has been around for the past 85 years. The SRF provides Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons, meditation, lectures, and more from the teachings of Kriya Yoga. Kriya Yoga is a “spiritual science” promoting the development of well-being and a balanced life; it originated in India. One of the goals of the SRF is to for people to “express more fully in their lives the beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit” (Visit http://www.yogananda-srf.org/ for more information.)

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a spiritual and physical practice that originated in India. Yoga is a series of poses and postures, often performed on a mat.

Yoga isn’t just a workout you can do at a class at your local gym! Yoga exercises your body and your mind.

There are many benefits to practicing yoga, including the reduction of stress, the practice of meditation, and the muscle tone that comes from doing the series of poses. Yoga also:

-promotes cardiovascular health

-improves the flexibility of the body

-strengthens the body’s core

-assists with weight loss

-physical therapy

-refreshes energy

What is Meditation?

Meditation is the practice of slowing down the mind and letting your thoughts melt away. It also increases awareness and develops mindfulness. Meditation also promotes:

-concentration

-compassion for oneself and others

-self-awareness

-relaxation

-stress reduction

If you are in the L.A. area and are interested in learning more about SRF, you can stop by the Visitors’ Center and take a tour Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
