Self Realization Center – Mt. Washington

In Temples of LA on August 2, 2010 at 9:48 pm

It is a crooked path of steep winding roads that leads ya to the Mother Center of the Self Realization Fellowship.  The former home of founder Paramahansa Yogananda (buried at Forest Lawn btw), this is now the International Headquarters for the order.

The grounds are just beautiful.  There are lush green nooks for meditation or reflection, and great views of odd vistas, of little seen parts of Los Angeles and unfamiliar angles on downtown.  Briar met a spookily-calm man, bone-thin with a broad hat, who dubbed her an angel.  When she hid her face, he amended that to shy angel, saying “I shan’t force an introduction then.”

Drop by between 9 and 5, except on Mondays.  1 to 5 on Sundays.  This part of Mt. Washington is a maze – leave bread-crumbs.
