A spiritual oasis

We live in an age which grants us extraordinary conveniences and torrents of information. Yet the very technology designed for our well-being often serves only to isolate us from one another and distance us from the experience of all that is truly divine.

The Bhakti Center is a spiritual oasis in the jungle of Manahattanthey host an amazing variety of events and classes. There is a beautiful Radha Krishna temple on the third floor. And of course, Divya’s Kitchen, New York #1 rated vegetarian restaurant—the perfect place to nourish yourself with spiritually-charged food before and after events.

The Bhakti Center presents four avenues of growth, each drawing from the yoga tradition. You can explore each to create your own path:


to purify the body and the mind


to find yourself by elevating the mind to a higher frequency


to contemplate life from a spiritual perspective


to experience the transformative power of the arts & sciences
