Firm Foundation Fund

Master’s Work in Kansas City: Building a Firm Foundation

“The Divine, having infinite capacity for doing good in His own creation, expects His children, made in His own Image, to do more than they think they can do. Think, after a few years how many will walk and work in Kansas City and Los Angeles and India after Lynn and Yogananda are gone.”*

Inspired by the divine example of Rajarsi Janakananda (James J. Lynn), who helped Master establish SRF through both his financial support and his ideal life, the Kansas City Meditation Group has established the Firm Foundation Fund to support three projects: the mortgage payoff, the permanent altar, and the parking lot replacement.  We invite you to join us in supporting the new chapel and property as a permanent home for Guruji’s family in Kansas City and surrounding Midwestern states.

The Firm Foundation Fund Goal: $250,000 over the next 24 months

Donations received in response to this appeal will be deposited into our local bank account and will be used as outlined above. Funds received beyond $250,000 will be set aside for future improvement projects to be determined by the Managing Council.
