Gayatri Temple: pujas, fire ceremonies, meditations, mantra groups, workshops. Sanatana Dharma Satsang, a nonprofit religious corporation, is the founder of the Gayatri Temple. See Message Board for more information.
The temple is a place of peace. It is a place of practice & purification, healing & rejuvenation, stillness & quiet. A place of rest. A place of oneness and community, joy and connection. A sanctuary for the teachings of Bhakti Yoga.
"Puja is worship. It becomes just a ritual when the inner meaning of the puja is not understood. Puja is an essential part of the spiritual sadhana, or discipline. It is a mystical communion with the divine." quotation by Sadguru Sant Keshavadas from his bookCosmic Shakti Kundalini, page 22.

We are at 4040 SW 114th Ave, just north of the corner of 114th Avenue & Canyon/TV Hwy. The temple is about 6 blocks east of the Beaverton TC. The Max Light Rail runs directly from the airport to Beaverton TC. http://trimet.org/schedules/maxblueline.htm
If you are driving, we are just one short block west of the 217 at Canyon. Note: There is no left turn from Canyon to 114th Ave when driving down Canyon from the west.
It is easy to get there from the 217. Exit on Canyon from the north, turn right at Canyon and make an immediate right at the first corner, which is 114th Ave, and proceed right into the business center a few feet north. If you are coming from the south, when you get off the 217 at OR 8 & 10, proceed north to Canyon then take a left under the 217 and turn right at the first street. If you are driving east on Canyon, you cannot make a left turn onto 114th Ave, so turn on 117th Ave to Central, then right to 114th Ave, right again over the Max tracks and turn left into the parking nearer Canyon. You will see our sign.
Entrance and Parking lot is on 114th Avenue, just west of our building.
