The Indianapolis Meditation Circle is composed of members and friends of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide nonprofit religious organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920. The aim of Self-Realization Fellowship is direct communion with God in meditation through practice of Kriya Yoga, an ancient and sacred scientific technique of meditation.
Through its worldwide service and teachings, and it’s Aims and Ideals, Self-Realization Fellowship seeks to awaken greater understanding of the harmony underlying all true religions, and a fuller expression in this world of the love that unites all people when they realize their oneness in God.
The Indianapolis Meditation Circle of SRF is dedicated to supporting the Aims and Ideals of Self-Realization Fellowship, balancing spiritual and material activities, practicing and sharing the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, providing spiritual support to one another through group meditation and spiritual fellowship, and performing spiritual service for the world.
The Indianapolis Meditation Circle serves members, lessons students, and friends throughout Indiana. All sincere spiritual seekers are welcome to join us in meditation and spiritual fellowship.
For an introduction to the spiritual path of Yoga we suggest reading the introductory booklet Undreamed of Possibilities (PDF) and this overview of Yoga Sutras of Patanjali referred to as The Eightfold Path of Yoga.
Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi serves as an excellent introduction to the spiritual heritage of India and the venerable practice of yoga. Copies of this timeless spiritual classic are available in our chapel, in public libraries, bookstores all over the world, and online at the SRF Bookstore.
Please see our schedule of weekly devotional and meditation services. We meet in the homes of our members located on the north side of Indianapolis between Nora and Broad Ripple. If you are interested in attending our services or activities, or have questions about our Circle, please contact us.
