We warmly welcome everyone to any regular weekly or special event at the Vedanta Center of Atlanta. You do not need an invitation. Our devotees and guests come from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. Please keep checking our calendar and sign up to receive our newsletter by email, as we typically invite several fascinating authors, ministers of other faith traditions, and prominent guest speakers throughout the year. There is no charge for any of our classes, lectures, or in-town retreats.
Our off-site Annual Retreat normally is held during an autumn weekend (Friday afternoon through Sunday lunch).
