Pacific Beach San Diego has a host of great things to do on the beach and by the beach. There is a host of beach activities and places to visit including the Hare Krishna Temple, which is located at 1020 Grand Avenue just a few blocks from the beach.

The Hare Krishna Temple provides a real insight into Indian society and culture and the temple area includes a weekly vegetarian “love feast” in addition to weekly Yoga programs at the Krishna Lounge.

According the the Krishna Lounge website the Krishna Lounge is
” a place where we can relax and take a break from the material stresses of life. After a long week of work or school, it is most divine to have a comfortable lounge to unwind and enjoy engaging but relaxing experience.

Despite the Krishna Lounge being completely transcendental, it is physically located in San Diego, Pacific Beach.

The Krishna Lounge has a gathering every Thursday night. Doors open by 7pm. We sing KIRTAN (Yoga Mantras), a form of mantra meditation, eat a lovely vegetarian meal, and take part in spiritually elevating conversations.”

The Hare Krishna Temple itself is open to the public with daily Yoga classes at 7:15AM and an India boutique and gift shop which is open at 5PM to 8PM 7 days a week. The gift shop includes all types of incence, books on spirituality, jewelry and clothing items.

The main temple area features Dieties and daily spiritual programs including a morning Kirtan and Yoga class. “It is as close to get experiencing India culture without having to fly there”, said Brian Harman a weekly Yoga class and Sunday love feast attendee”.

The Sunday love feast program has been going on at the San Diego temple since the 1970’s and features a short Yoga lecture, singing and dancing and also an amazing 5 course vegetarian dinner.

The cost of the dinner is only $5.00 and anyone who volunteers to serve out and help clean up can eat for free.
