TEMPLE OPEN DURING CONSTRUCTION
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.

The Bhakti Lounge is a discussion-based, informal gathering, to personally experience bhakti. It's a place where you share your journey and meet practitioners of Bhakti.
If you are new to Bhakti or the community, join us here to get an introduction and connected in.
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.
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.
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.
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
