Entrance to the Meditation Gardens

Leave behind the restless city life and enter this peaceful outdoor sanctuary.  The lakeside Meditation Garden is for contemplation, quiet reflection, and prayer. Silence phones and leave behind loud conversations. Bask in the peace and silence. Enjoy the beauty of the lake and gardens as you walk the paths. Benches facing the lake and a Chapel inside the Windmill provide spaces for silent meditation and contemplation. There are shrines that honor the great individuals who worked for peace for the benefit all. A museum of artifacts, celebrating the life and work of Paramahansa Yogananda, is open for you to visit. There is no charge to visit Lake Shrine.

“Through the portals of silence the healing sun of wisdom and peace will shine upon you.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

Visitor Information

As I radiate sympathy and goodwill to others I open the channel for God’s love to come to me. Divine love is the magnet that attracts all blessedness.
