In addition to the Sunday lecture, a study class is conducted by Swami Bhaskarananda on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 pm. Please see our calendar for current listings.

Devotional Singing

Every Sunday evening at 7:00 pm, we have a singing of Ram-Nam in Sanskrit along with other devotional songs in English, Hindi, and Bengali. All are welcome.

Children’s Program

Mother’s Children is a program for our members’ children of ages 3 to 16. It is held every Sunday morning at 11:00 am. Its aim is to inspire the children through play and moral education to become good and noble individuals while also giving parents the opportunity to attend the lecture.

Retreat Program

Every month a daylong retreat program consisting of holy readings, devotional songs, and a potluck luncheon is held at Tapovan.  This program is for members only. Please see the calendar for the next retreat program.

Annual Events

Throughout the year there are several annual functions held by the Society including: the worships of the Divine Mother Durga, Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, Swami Vivekananda, and Shiva Ratri; the adoration of Jesus Christ; and a musical evening with performers from both the eastern and western musical traditions.

Spiritual Guidance

Swami Bhaskarananda is glad to confer with those who are sincerely interested in knowing about Vedanta. He is equally glad to help sincere spiritual seekers with necessary practical instructions in regard to personal prayer and mediation. However, those who receive spiritual instruction from the Swami are expected to be members. Appointments may be made after lectures and classes or by calling the Society.

Membership

Anyone wishing to express their appreciation and sustained support for the Vedantic ideals may become a member of the Society, subject to the approval of Swami Bhaskarananda. Annual dues are $60. For further information, please inquire of Swami Bhaskarananda or the Secretary.
