Peace โค๏ธ Love ๐Ÿ’•โ€” SRF Lake Shrine Retreat๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™

Love in Los Angeles โค๏ธ

More peace. More love ๐Ÿ’•

It has been my dream to be able to spend a few days at our Lake Shrine Retreat. Simply divine. The love and care and hospitality of the staff and volunteers is incomparable. And such uplifting vibrations! God willing shall spend more time here in my next visit.

Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine is a Temple, a Shrine, and a Meditation Garden offering people from around the world a quiet oasis for meditation, prayer, and receiving the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. All are welcome here, not only devotees ๐Ÿ™

For those who love silence and nature it is an amazing retreat to spend a days or weeks. Simple yet beautiful rooms. With every little detail taken care off. All rooms face Pacific Ocean. Wholesome, pure, tasty vegetarian meals. A chapel for individual meditations and a study room to sit and read. Conducted meditations are in the main temple.

We were 11 of us there in the retreat. Most others looked like a Spanish group. Another two ladies used to share the dining table, where I normally sat. We used to smile at each other but never talked. Retreants normally remain silent. On my last day there it was raining and I was wondering how to go to the temple for morning meditation. One of these ladies had an umbrella and offered to share it with me. It turned out that both these ladies too were from India (Mumbai only๐Ÿ˜Š) and thought I was part of the Spanish group ๐Ÿ˜Š We were together for three days, from the same city – Mumbai and kept thinking that the other person was from Spain ๐Ÿ˜‡

Lake Shrine is dedicated to all religions ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Later I was able to accompany this family to SRF Hollywood Temple too. They were happy and grateful. A day well spent ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™
