Lake Shrine is part of Self-Realization Fellowship founded by Paramahansa Yogananda.  Dedicated in 1950, he envisioned a spiritual environment where people from all over the world could come and experience peace of heart and mind.  Today, Lake Shrine offers a lakeside Meditation Garden with shrines and waterfalls, a hilltop Temple with weekly inspirational services and meditations, a retreat for silent renewal, and an ashram for monks of Self-Realization Fellowship.  All are welcome to come and experience inner and outer peace, and to discover Raja Yoga (Royal Yoga) through the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda.

 

O Spirit, I worship Thee as beauty and intelligence in the temple of Nature. I worship Thee as power in the temple of activity, and as peace in the temple of silence.
