The Bhakti Center is a nonprofit cultural arts center dedicated to sharing the experience of self-transformation — physically, emotionally, and spiritually — through the culture of Bhakti. Bhakti philosophy holds the idea that the divine qualities which lie at the very essence of the self can be revived though the experience of culture, as explored through literature, art, drama, music and dance.
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.
Historically, the search for enduring happiness and the desire to reunite the self with God gave rise to various paths of yoga. The sacred texts of yoga, such as the Bhagavad-gita, Ramayana, and Srimad Bhagavatam, address the essential questions of life. Their teachings, handed down throughout the centuries, permeated the cultural arts of the Bhakti tradition. The Bhakti Center is a place where these arts are preserved and take new life.
At the Bhakti Center we draw our inspiration from the life and teachings of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who brought the culture of Bhakti to the Western world. We are happy to invite you to visit, experience the programs and events we offer, and meet kindred spirits. We hope you will find it a place of inspiration and that your life may be in some way touched by the timeless culture of Bhakti.
