Daily morning meditation
Our morning meditation begins at 5AM, during the brahma muhurta hour (1.5 hrs. before the sunrise). In the Veda's, India's ancient spiritual literature, it is stated that the brahma muhurta hour is the best time to perform practices leading to self-realization.
We begin with an arti cermony or worship of the Deities, while we have kirtan or chanting with musical instruments; next is tulasi puja, the honoring of Krishna's pure devotee the tulasi plant; next we have an hour and a half japa meditation where everyone chants quitely the Hare Krishna maha mantra on beads; at 7:30am there is greeting the Deities followed by guru puja or honoring the spiritual master (Srila Prabhupada); and at 7:45 there is a class/discussion on the Srimad Bhagavatam (the ' cream ' of Vedic wisdom) until 8:30, followed by a vegetarian breakfast of Krishna prasadam-foodstuffs offered to God.
You are cordially invited to attend this ecstatic morning program, either in full or in part, to start the day off in a transcendental mood that will make your whole day go by blissfully and in a higher state of consciousness.

SUNDAY LOVE FEAST
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., there is a musical mantra meditation, followed by a 30 minute discussion on ancient Vedic wisdom and how it can be applied in our modern lives. Then we begin an arti ceremony of worshiping the Deities of the Lord with great pomp along with lively kirtan. Finally, after a few announcements by our temple President, Sandamini devi dasi, we serve an "all you care to eat" dinner of sumptuous, spiritual vegetarian food, called prasadam.

“My dear King, although Kali-yuga is full of faults, there is still one good quality about this age. It is that simply by chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom.” (Bhāg. 12.3.51)
