The Bhakti Centre is a spiritual cultural center on New York City’s Lower East Side. It is a community devoted to sharing the experience of self-transformation through the timeless culture and practices of Bhakti. It teaches yoga, meditation, wisdom and culture to help navigate the pressures of modern city life.
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 Manahattan—they 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
