The Young Adult Program is for people 18-30 interested in living in a spiritual community to explore work, develop self-knowledge and gain skills. This live-and-work program focuses on Karma Yoga — the yoga of action and selfless service —and also introduces participants to Mantra, Hatha, Dreams and Kundalini Yoga — tools that can help expand awareness.
Karma Yoga teaches us how to work, how to work together and how to understand ourselves in relation to others. The yoga of action helps us take our theoretical knowledge of spiritual life and test it out in our daily lives. At Yasodhara Ashram, Karma Yoga is translated into our daily work as service to the community.
The Temple of Light arose from the lifelong dream of the founder of the Yasodhara Ashram, Swami Radha – a dream in which people from all paths and spiritual traditions could connect with each other and share common sacred ground.
The original Temple, completed in 1992, was destroyed by fire in 2014.
The spirit of the Temple lives on in the new innovative rebuild, designed by Patkau Architects, that has evolved from the original design.
Construction was completed in the fall of 2017 and the Temple official opened in June of 2018.
