Karma Yoga: We invite you to join us Saturday mornings from 9 am to 1 pm in performing various weekly chores of the center: maintenance, gardening and landscaping, cleaning, office work, etc. With the completion of the new temple, the need for volunteer help is greater than ever. Please consider becoming a regular member of our karma yoga team. Also, we need volunteers to help with setup and cleanup before and after the Sunday lecture.

Temple Hours: The shrine room in the new temple will be open for morning meditation at 5 am and daily Puja at 7:45 am, and will remain open throughout the day until the close of evening meditation at 8 pm. Evening arati begins at 6:30 pm. Devotees may enter through the double doors at the main entrance to the temple or through the front door entrance to the Center. All are welcome.

Parents with small children are welcome to watch the Sunday lecture on the movie screen in the lower level of the temple while their child­ren are free to quietly play.

Grocery Gift Cards: We urge all of you to take part in our gift card program. Gift cards for Giant and Gift certificates for Lotte/Assi Plaza may be purchased at the Center following the Sunday lecture or during visiting hours, and are used just like a debit card when purchasing groceries. This is an important part of our monthly income and a way to support the Center at no cost to you. Those who would like to help in the sale of cards may contact Ranajit Pal at (301) 330-1634.
