Our Hollywood location is home to a temple, a monastery, a convent, bookshop, library, and the society’s administrative offices. Our minister, Swami Sarvadevananda, and other monks reside in the Hollywood monastery.

The temple is open daily to the public from morning meditation through evening classes. Daily puja, worship, is observed at 12:00 noon every day. Daily arati, vespers, is at 6:00 pm. We also host Sunday morning spiritual talks, Sunday School, scripture and chanting classes, kirtans, karma yoga days, and special pujas.
