~Yogoda Satsanga Society Of India~

Yogoda Satsanga Society of India was founded in 1917 by Paramahansa Yogananda, the great spiritual leader from India who spread the message of yoga in the West. Coined by Yogananda, the society’s name is derived from Sanskrit with yogoda derived from the root words, yoga, meaning “union,” and da, meaning “that which imparts.” Satsanga is derived from the root words, sat, meaning “truth,” and sanga, meaning “fellowship.”

Yogoda Satsanga Society is called Self-Realization Fellowship in countries outside the subcontinent of India. The headquarters of the society is on the banks of the sacred Ganges River.
