World Peace Memorial at Lake Shrine

 "Come into the silence of solitude, and the vibration there will talk to you through the voice of God"  -- Paramahansa Yogananda



After such a wonderful event and book signing at Yoga Gives Back 4th Annual Fundraiser in Malibu Baza Guru Rinpoche and I took Lucky Number 9 and paid our respects to the Sarcophagus of the Mahatma Gandhi Ji at the World Peace Memorial at Lake Shrine. Many thousands of visitors come each year to enjoy the scenic beauty and serenity of this spiritual sanctuary.




Paramahansa Yogananda — Indian guru, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, and founder of the worldwide spiritual organization, Self-Realization Fellowship — established Lake Shrine Temple in 1950.  A ten-acre gem located just east of the Pacific Ocean on Sunset Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades, Lake Shrine is home to astounding natural beauty: a spring-fed lake and waterfalls, countless species of trees, dazzling flowers and abundant animals, including swans, koi, turtles and dragonflies.  The lush grounds also feature the Mahatma Gandhi World Peace Memorial where some of the famed leader’s ashes are consecrated in a 1,000-year-old Chinese sarcophagus.
