Welcome to the Chicago Center of Self-Realization Fellowship.

The Chicago Center is composed of devoted members and friends of Self-Realization Fellowship, a worldwide nonprofit organization with international headquarters in Los Angeles, California.

Self-Realization Fellowship was founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda for the purpose of disseminating Kriya Yoga, a definite scientific technique for attaining direct personal experience of God. Through its worldwide service and teachings, Self-Realization Fellowship seeks to awaken greater understanding of the harmony underlying all true religions, and a fuller expression in this world of the love that unites all people when they realize their oneness in God.

As an introduction, we suggest that you read Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi. Copies of this spiritual classic are available in public libraries and bookstores worldwide.
