Directories of Temples, Ashramas and Spiritual Organizations

Listed below are directories of temples, associations, ashramas, and spiritual educational centers from around the world, for the spiritual paths of India and the East, as well as some publishing or catalog houses for books and other items. These have been prepared in response to the requests I've had to help people find such places that may be near them. Thirty years ago there were few to be found, except in India. Things have certainly changed since then. Now you can find them in so many places. So don't feel that you are alone. 

So, for those who want to continue their understanding or involvement in the Vedic or Eastern processes of spiritual development, and would like to find local temples that may be near you so that you can meet and associate with like-minded people, these lists may help. These lists, along with the additional websites on our "Links" page, can help you find many temples throughout the U.S., India and the world. Much more information about the major temples and traveling in India can be found in the books of Stephen Knapp.

Naturally, there are many more temples and organizations not listed, and those that are may move or close, so call or write to make sure these are still valid addresses. Furthermore, feel free to contact us to let us know of any new temples or ashramas that you feel should be listed.
