Mount Madonna Center Hanuman Temple Watsonville
In 2001, long-time students of Baba Hari Dass returned from India with a beautiful Hanuman murti. When Babaji saw the statue, he wrote on his board, “It needs a Temple.” He promptly walked to the Center’s rustic ceremonial site, scratched out a location for the Temple with his foot and the digging began. The Prana Pratishta ceremony, “establishing the breath” within the sacred image, was performed in 2003.
The Temple complex is located within the Mount Madonna Center Hanuman Temple Watsonville, a residential private retreat and conference center. The Center offers a wide range of programs on self-development, health, and well-being, including the many disciplines of Yoga.
They welcome you to their Temple and hope you enjoy your visit. Volunteers are needed weekends and holidays. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or inquire with a Temple Docent about volunteer opportunities.
Babaji is often available for darshan on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in the MMC Community Building. Inquire with a Temple Docent or Community Building Reception for more information.
Arati is performed daily at 6:30am and 6:00pm.
