General Information

Practices.

For personal transformation, our main tools are spiritual practices, like chanting the Hare Krishna mantra and reading the Song of God, the Bhagavad-gita.

Krishna.

And of course, learn about Krishna, revered in India for thousands of years as the All-Attractive Lord of Lords and the Source of All Creation. Understand how and why we worship him, and about our lineage of spiritual teachers that stretches back to……Krishna himself., the original guru.

Growing a Family.

Our next New Member Meeting will be on December 5th at 3pm, just before the Sunday Feast. Browse through our Steps To Involvement menu to get a sense of our sangham, or spiritual family. Members can take the Lifestyle 101 Class, the Philosophy 201 Class and login through this website to our online community and premium content.

Sunday Feast.

What could be finer? Every Sunday come listen to a lecture on spiritual living, then enjoy kirtan, chanting the Holy Names, a gourmet vegetarian dinner of prasadam, or blessed food. A great time is had by all, as we leave the material world behind. The Sunday Love Feast is held in every Hare Krishna temple in the world. Click here for details.

Festivals.

From the wildness of Holi (Festival of Colors) in March to the serenity of Diwali (Festival of Lights) in October, we are justly famous for our festivals. There are seven per year. Put them on your calendar now! View our calendar here.

Retreats.

Relax and rejuvenate four times per year at an Om Shanti Retreat that incorporates yoga, hiking, gourmet vegetarian food, and high philosophical discussion.

Daily Tours.

Every day from 10am – 7pm, tours are available of the temple and animals. The temple tour is about 10-30 minutes, and covers the history, beliefs and deities of Krishna consciousness. In the animal park, encounter llamas, zebu (miniature cows), peacocks and parrots and a pond full of koi. Tour groups of 6 or more will need to book in advance.

Annually, about 40,000 people tour the temple and grounds.

Llamas.

[In Spanish Fork Temple] Llamas are ace pack animals, sure-footed, calm, self feeding. We rent our llamas for “assignments” with hikers and campers all over Utah and in several other states. Every year we also celebrate LlamaFest to honor these unique South American animals. See the llama rental schedule here.
