The Self Realization Fellowship Encinitas temple offers a wide array of inspirational lectures, meditations, scripture reading and meditation services, kirtans (devotional chanting), and other activities to introduce people to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and Kriya Yoga.

The Place

The founder of Self Realization Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda, received the gift of the Encinitas Hermitage from a disciple, Rajarsi Janakananda. He then designed the Lotus temple himself with the intention of revealing as much of nature's beauty as possible. Unfortunately in 1942 the temple became unstable and had to be removed. Since 1977, the Encinitas Temple services have been held at its current location. The temple is located about 2 blocks north of the Ashram and retreat center. The ashram and retreat centre are accompanied by meditation gardens. They have become a center of pilgrimage for people every year that come from all over the world to see where the great teacher lived, worked, and communicated with God.

Lineage and
Organization

Self-Realization Fellowship is a worldwide spiritual organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 and legally incorporated as a non-profit religious organization in 1935, to serve as Yogananda's instrument for the preservation and worldwide dissemination of his writings and teachings, including Kriya Yoga.
