Welcome to this photo essay of some of the recent visits by SRF monastics to locations around the world.

In Spring 2022 SRF monastics resumed visiting Paramahansa Yogananda’s worldwide spiritual family in cities in the United States and Europe, after such visits had been temporarily paused due to the pandemic. The monks and nuns conducted a wide variety of inspirational events, including lectures and classes on the “how-to-live” teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, weekend retreat programs, group meditations, kirtan devotional chanting, answering spiritual questions in satsanga, and providing individual spiritual counseling.
