Paramahansa Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship Temple

When I lived in Carlsbad, California…I visited the Self Realization Fellowship Temple in Encinitas¬† for a service one evening. The feeling permeating the temple was incredible. The temple was filled to capacity and the Self Realization Fellowship monk leading the service made a comment that the peace in the room that night was palpable. When the service ended, I felt light as a feather and thought I was about to float as I left the temple.

The New Age

By Joe Danna | new age , Self Realization Fellowship , yoga

Though the ancient mystics were aware of The Sidereal Calendar with its 36,000-year cycle through the twelve ages, it has only been since the mid to late 1960s that talk about a new age began percolating amidst the fringes of society. With the help of The Beatles, those early days of transcendental meditation and consciousness raising started an upswing in the questioning of reality. Of course, there were other influences that brought eastern philosophies to America, such as Paramahansa Yogananda with The Self Realization Fellowship in the early part of the 20th century, but it took decades for interest in these new ways of thinking to take hold in The United States. In recent years, books and other media about the workings of universal law and quantum physics have shed light on the subject.
