Masks continue to be optional for those attending public services. In consideration of the latest directives regarding the increased transmissability of the new omicron variants, we encourage those who are vulnerable and/or who live with those who have underlying conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus to wear an N94 or N95 mask. We always have masks available at the back of the Temple. We continue to monitor the CDC and state/county guidelines, and we will change directives if and when it is necessary. 




“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.”
                                                  ~ Swami Paramananda


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..
