Meditation is the ability to take the mind away from every object of distraction and put it upon God alone.
— Paramahansa Yogananda
Currently, we are operating with a reduced schedule. Be sure to contact email@example.com for the services now available during Covid recovery. The Reno Meditation Group offers regular Meditation and Inspirational Reading Services that are open to the public.
All are welcome to attend. Paramahansa Yogananda emphasized that the united devotion and concentration of many
yoga devotees can powerfully increase the depth of each individual's meditation.
Meditation Service — 10:00 to 10:45 am
The meditation service includes periods of prayer, chanting and about 40 minutes of silent meditation. Meditation services provide opportunities to practice the methods of concentration and meditation taught in the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. All are welcome.
Reading Service — 11:00 am to 12:00 noon
The reading service is a good introduction for those not familiar with meditation. It includes short periods of prayer, chanting and silent meditation. Selections from the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda are read during the service. The service concludes with the Worldwide Prayer Circle Service.
These special services are held throughout the year to honor either the birth or Mahasamadhi (final conscious exit from the physical body) of one of the Self-Realization Fellowship line of Gurus. They are open to all who understand the significance of the guru-disciple relationship and can participate with sincerity and reverence. Please bring a flower, symbolizing devotion for the Master being honored, and a monetary donation to Self Realization Fellowship in an envelope, as an expression of gratitude and loyalty to their work.
• Prayer Service - At the close of the Sunday morning services and Thursday evening services we pray for the physical, mental, and spiritual healing of others, and for world brotherhood and peace. Together, the group practices the spiritual healing technique taught by Paramahansa Yogananda, which is explained in the free booklet Worldwide Prayer Circle.
