Daily Advisories

Winter Storms

The Lake Shrine Windmill Chapel, Gift Shop and Visitor Center will probably remain open during a storm. However the path around the lake may close temporarily if rainfall becomes sustained and torrential. In some cases the whole property will be closed due to safety concerns for our quests.

The Commemoration Service to honor the Mahasamadhi of Paramahansa Yogananda will be held on Tuesday, March 7 from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

Lake Shrine Path Closure

The path around the Lake will be blocked just past the gift shop and after the Krishna Falls so it will not be possible to circumnavigate the Lake during the renovation.  The gift shop will remain open during construction. Access to the Lake can be made via the Visitor Center entrance. The Krishna Falls should be accessible (most of the time) by the approach past the House Boat.

There is… great value in visiting places where saints have lived. …such places are forever permeated with the vibrations left there by the divine souls who walked those grounds.
