Hollywood Temple

Important announcement: the Sunday services are suspended, and the bookshop is closed, until further notice, in accordance with the directive issued by the California Department of Public Health.

 

Our Hollywood location is home to a temple, monastery, 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, scripture and chanting classes, kirtans, karma yoga days, and special pujas. The library is open before and after Sunday morning talks.
