Yogananda Seva Programs

The uplifting influence of Paramahansa Yogananda’s world mission is ever expanding. Through attunement and heartfelt service we can help manifest undreamed-of possibilities together.

Yogananda Seva serves the worldwide family of SRF/YSS members.

The programs Yogananda Seva undertakes include projects not formally affiliated with SRF but operating with its guidance and blessing.

Young Adult Sangha 

The YSO Young Adult Sangha is an emerging international community of SRF/YSS young adults who feel the call for spiritual fellowship of young people following or interested in the teachings and meditation methods of Paramahansa Yogananda.

Lay Disciple Intentional Communities Forum

The Yogananda Seva Lay Disciple Intentional Communities Forum is a resource center, incubator for ideas, networking environment, and place of dialogue for SRF/YSS devotees interested in developing intentional living communities grounded in spiritual harmony.

Elder Forum

Vanaprastha is the stage in life when many mature devotees feel drawn to begin stepping back from outer activities to focus more deeply on their spiritual life. To serve this community, the Elder Forum Team will facilitate an online forum for collective dialogue, networking, and shared learning.

Possible Future Program Ideas Under Consideration

As Yogananda Seva continues to expand, we are pleased to share a glimpse of the projects that are being explored for potential development in the future. (The projects below are only in the formative concept stage; we will share more information as these projects develop.)

Travel Support

One idea being explored is an agency for SRF/YSS devotees and friends wishing to make pilgrimages and retreats, or travel with other members. Features may include one-stop access to all member guides and locations, group pricing on travel expenses, devotee home-share service, and relocation support for devotees moving to new locations.
