The first stop for our traveling monks began in San Jose, California, at the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment.
From their website: The Center for Spiritual Enlightenment is a meditation center in the spiritual tradition of Kriya Yoga, welcoming people from all backgrounds who are seeking God-realization, a path to spiritually conscious, fulfilled living. At CSE you'll find practical support and tools for transforming your life, fulfilling your worthwhile dreams, and living a spiritually conscious life.
CSE World Headquarters is located in San Jose, California, where worship services, meditation instruction, Kriya Yoga teachings and initiation, hatha yoga classes, youth spiritual education, ministry services and retreats are regularly offered. It is also the home of Meru Institute for Yoga Studies; Lahiri Retreat House; a meditation garden open daily to the public; CSE Press; and Tree of Life Welcome Center and Bookshop. Teachings are offered globally through online programs, outreach, and publications.
Our host and head of the fellowship Yogacharya O'Brian greeted Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami and treated the monks to a whole morning of touring the grounds, updates, future plans and a wonderful lunch. Please visit their website to learn more: https://www.csecenter.org/
