Temple Morning of Service

If you’re looking for an opportunity to connect with other devotees and serve, this is it!  Join us on Saturday, April 15th for our next Morning of Service. We start at 9 AM with a meditation, followed by various opportunities to serve. A noon meditation precedes a scrumptious vegetarian buffet on the patio at 12:30.  

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.

Please help us preserve our meditative environment by observing the following:

  • Quiet conversation
  • Silence cellphones
  • ADA service dogs only
  • Modest attire and respectful behavior
  • Children welcome, with adult supervision
