 BHAGAVAD GITA    FRIDAYS    7:30 - 8:30 P.M. PDT

Swami Tattwamayananda gives a weekly class on the Bhagavad Gita on Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Temple. There will be no Friday evening class on November 5, the day after Kali Puja, or on the 26th, the day after Thanksgiving. We are currently studying Chapter 9 of the Gita. The YouTube archive of previous Bhagavad Gita classes can be found at: Bhagavad Gita Archive.


The New Temple is now open for in-person attendance at Sunday lectures and the Old Temple is open for in-person attendance at the Friday evening scripture class. In order to enter either temple, and for the continued safety and well-being of everyone, you must be fully vaccinated and be able to show proof of vaccination, wear a mask, and observe physical distancing. Please note that seating will be limited in the auditoriums because of physical distancing. For the time being the bookshop, library, and child care services are not available.

At present the Vedanta Retreat in Olema, Marin County, is open only for day visits to those who are fully vaccinated and can show proof of vaccination. If you would like to visit the retreat, please email to make arrangements.

Our online programs are streamed from the Old Temple except for worships which are streamed from the New Temple. Our Sunday lectures, classes, and retreats are available as podcasts on all major platforms. Please continue to monitor for the latest information and please email for any inquiries. Although the bookshop is closed, orders may be placed online.

We are pleased to inform you that as of October 15, 2021, we have a
new website. If you haven't had an opportunity to view it as yet, we hope that you will be able to take a look at it soon and that you will find it user-friendly.

Thank you for your cooperation in being vaccinated
as well as wearing a mask while on the temple premises!
