For many years prior to 1960, SRF devotees and friends had gathered together for group meditation and fellowship. Over time, as the attendance grew, the group received the status of Meditation Group. Around July 1964 the Toronto Centre received its designation as a Meditation Centre.
To accommodate an ever-increasing attendance, the Centre moved from time to time to larger facilities. Since March 1997 we have been located at 2510 Yonge Street (Suite 207, second floor), close to Eglinton subway station. Directions and parking are available here.
The meditation services take place in our chapel, which is on the 2nd floor. The chapel is open for private meditation 30 minutes before the start of each meditation and service. Our chapel can accommodate approximately 90 people. Please check our regular services and times.
In 2016 the Toronto Centre incorporated and obtained charitable status. This allows us to provide tax receipts for donations. For this purpose we registered a unique business name and chose to use “Toronto Yogoda Meditation Centre”. The business name is only used when legally required such as on cheques deposited with the bank.
