Free Lecture on the Teachings of Yogananda                     

The Austin Meditation Group of Self-Realization Fellowship will sponsor a talk on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and the science of Kriya Yoga meditation from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on January 29 at The Norris Center, in Austin. This talk will be presented by Brother Balananda, a long-time monk of Self-Realization Fellowship monastic order.

Author of the bestselling spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, Yogananda came to America in 1920 from his native India and was the first great Master of Yoga to live and teach in the West for an extended period (more than 30 years).

He is now widely recognized as the Father of Yoga in the West and was recently the subject of an award-winning documentary film, AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda. He founded the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India in 1917 and the Self-Realization Fellowship in 1920, both of which continue to carry on his spiritual legacy worldwide.

Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings include a system of powerful meditation techniques as part of the science of Kriya Yoga. These techniques are available through the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons.

A question and answer session will immediately follow the talk. Refreshments will be available.

Cost: Free. Location: 2525 W. Anderson Ln. For information about the Austin Meditation Group, visit For information about meditation and the teachings of the Self-Realization Fellowship, visit
