Lake Shrine follows the current (March, 2022) Los Angeles County health guideline strongly recommending, but not requiring face masks indoors.

There is designated parking and restroom facilities for handicap. Visitor Center and Windmill Chapel are both accessible. The lake pathway is soft mulch, but generally acceptable for wheelchairs and walkers. Park benches are along the path.  Some lakeside landings have garden steps. Feel free to contact us with questions.

Our current offering of events can be found on the calendar near the bottom of this website homepage.

Lake Shrine does not allow staged photo or video shoots in the meditation garden. This includes private and commercial projects, social media and use of the property as a location for TV and film.

Self-Realization Fellowship does not rent out Lake Shrine facilities and reserves the campus for its own activities and events.

We do not have residential rooms for guests. Lake Shrine has a retreat with short-term accommodations for those who reserve in advance for the purpose of silence, meditation and prayer.    

Monastics can be available to provide consultation on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Requesting in advance of a visit is appreciated. Please contact us to arrange counseling.
