La Crescenta, CA





Masks will be optional for vaccinated people. Members of the community and congregation who are vulnerable due to age, underlying health conditions or who live with those who are vulnerable and/or unvaccinated are encouraged to continue wearing masks. Also, to the extent possible please maintain social distance in the temple and bookstore.


After much prayer and discussion, the community has decided to welcome unvaccinated members of the congregation to services with the stipulation that a KN95 or N95 mask is worn in the temple and house. Our goal is to gradually return to normal while at the same time realizing that circumstances can change and may require a change in protocols in the future.

“My idea is not to bring here a Hindu creed or a Christian creed or a Buddhist creed, but to take the best out of all and embody the universal aspect of all. That is my dream.”

ANANDA ASHRAMA, founded in 1923 by Swami Paramananda, is a spiritual retreat dedicated to all world religions, where followers of diverse faiths may come together to worship the One Spirit who is called by many names. Its philosophy is based on the universal teachings of Vedanta as expounded by India's 19th century prophet, Sri Ramakrishna.


Situated in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, at an altitude of more than 2,000 feet, the ashrama covers 120 acres of hillsides, canyons, and meadows. Trees, gardens, and rock lined pathways provide a peaceful retreat for spiritual study and prayer..
