Temple

The Temple holds a murti, or statue, of Bhagawan Nityananda, Swami Muktananda’s Guru Temple-Banner-Blue_Gold_300and one of the most venerable saints of India. In the sacred environment of the Temple one is naturally drawn inward. With its powerful and silent atmosphere, the Temple is an ideal place to meditate, contemplate or simply sit quietly.

The Bhagawan Nityananda Temple, was built out of reverence as a refuge for those who come to meditate, pray, chant, contemplate, and experience the darshan of Bhagavan Nityananda.

To support everyone’s experience in the Temple, please observe the following guidelines.

Temple Guidelines
1. Please dress modestly and respectfully when entering the Temple.

  • Women may wear a dress/skirt to the knee or longer, skirt-like wide-legged pants, with a jacket or top that covers the hips.
  • Leggings may also be worn if the jacket or top covers the hips.
  • Men are asked to wear long pants.  Short-sleeve collared shirts are okay in warmer weather.
  • Please no sleeveless shirts or blouses, shorts, jeans, or sweatpants.
  • Shawls are available at the entrance to the Temple to drape over bare arms or wrap around jeans, shorts, etc.
  • Children 12 and older are requested to follow the same guidelines.
  • Children under 12 are welcome with their parents but we recommend sitting in the back to allow for easy egress should that prove necessary.

2. Please observe silence in the Temple unless chanting. If you must speak to a Temple sevite, please whisper.

3. If participating in a Temple chant or event, please arrive on time and plan on staying the entire time. It is very distracting to those participating in the practices when people are coming and going. Since seating is tighter in the Temple, if you must leave, please do so as sensitively as possible. Please aware that once meditation begins, the Temple will not be open for re-entry until Darshan begins.

4. Please refrain from wearing any fragrances as they can be distracting to others and some people have fragrance allergies.

Thank you so much for honoring these guidelines and the Temple.
