Given the spread of corona virus in India, and after consulting with public health experts, out of an abundance of caution and care, we had cancelled all group meditations, satsangas, and other group activities during March 2020, at all YSS Ashrams, Kendras, Mandalis, and Retreat centres.
We have two important commemoration functions coming up on March 7 and 9 (Mahasamadhi Anniversaries of our Gurudeva Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, and our Paramguru Sri Sri Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri) and we do not wish that devotees miss out on the blessings of participating in these sacred commemorative meditations.
We are happy to invite you to join the livestream of the commemorative meditations on March 7 and 9, starting at 6:30 pm (IST). Please note that these will be meditations and not commemorative services.
Also, note that the livestream of Sunday Satsanga on March 8, which was announced earlier is now CANCELLED.
We are planning to livestream these meditations from the SRF Online Meditation Center. Its purpose is to provide YSS/SRF devotees and friends around the world who are not be able to attend group meditations at a YSS/SRF temple or meditation group with the opportunity to experience the benefits and blessings of meditating with other devotees.
There are two ways to participate in these live streams:
