Hollywood Temple

The Hollywood Temple & Bookshop are open according to the schedule below.

  1. Please wear a mask without vents while inside the temple.
  2. Please be fully vaccinated.

Please have patience with us as we slowly remove restrictions and move towards a full re-opening.

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. Members may search for titles in our catalog and borrow books.
