The upper section of our property is currently under construction as we prepare to open our new temple building. 

The original temple building remains open and regular programming will continue throughout construction. If on-site parking is full, please use the overflow parking available in our next door neighbor's backyard at 10302 Oaklyn Drive.

BHAKTI LOUNGE

MANTRA MEDITATION

sundays
12pm - 12:30PM

One of the main practices of Bhakti yoga is chanting the Hare Krishna mantra softly to oneself. This is called japa, or mantra meditation.

We invite you to join us for a guided mantra meditation session every Sunday in the temple room. No experience necessary. Beads and mantra cards will be provided.

KIRTAN

sundays
12:30PM - 1PM

Kirtan is the call and response chanting of ancient Sanskrit mantras. By meditating on these sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life. You don’t have to have a great voice and you don’t have to know sanskrit. All you need is a desire and an open heart.

All are welcome to join us in this congregational practice in the temple room on Sundays.

SUNDAY TALK

sundays
1pm - 2pm

Every week, we hear from an experienced practitioner of Bhakti yoga as they share about various topics within Krishna consciousness.

VEGETATIANLUNCH

sundays
2pm- 3pm

All are welcome to join us for a free prasadam lunch on Sundays! Prasadam literally means “mercy” and devotees of ISKCON use this term to describe pure vegetarian food that has been offered to Lord Krishna.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own reusable containers to take lunch home with them, if desired.

I'M NEW

TO THIS COMMUNITY

Our Sunday Open Houses are fun, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. 

 

Don’t worry about wearing something ‘Indian’ or ‘your Sunday best’ to ISKCON of DC. You are welcome to visit in casual or dressy clothing. Since the temple community has members who follow the yoga practice of celibacy, we ask that you do not wear clothing that is too revealing.  If you plan to spend time sitting in the Temple Room or meditating, you may want to consider wearing clothing that is comfortable and not restrictive.  While in the Temple Building, we ask that you remove your shoes
