A place of community

“Our Society is like one big family and our relationships should be based on love and trust.”
 – Srila Prabhupada, Letter to Upendra, Los Angeles, 6 August 1970

Our temple is a sacred space that brings us together. Actively participating in temple activities strengthens the bonds that tie us to one another. It is within this collective spirit that we find support, celebrate life’s milestones, and navigate challenges. The temple is a vibrant centre for the growth and well-being of everyone, the beating heart of a community now spread throughout London and surrounding counties. Thousands of members meet together in hundreds of smaller groups, forming a spiritual family.

Ceremonies (Samskaras)

Mark the significant and major moments throughout your life, from birth ceremonies to weddings, to funerals and bereavements.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved and be part of the community. You will pick up on some amazing skills, it will look great on your resume and we will get the help we need to make sure that we keep providing the spiritual inspiration that our visitors need. Plus, you will benefit from being part of our spiritual community groups and make lifelong friends.

Youth Groups

Pandava Sena offers the youth an opportunity to ‘live a life less ordinary!’ A youth group that is passionate about transforming hearts.

Srila Prabhupada repeatedly emphasised the importance of sharing Krishna consciousness with others. Being an advocate for Krishna means speaking highly of the philosophy, and encouraging others, whether it’s at home, at work, or with your friends to learn more about Krishna in a positive, uplifting and gentle way – by sharing Krishna with others you are doing a great service.

If you wish to invite a friend to Bhaktivedanta Manor, we recommend booking a tour for a complete experience. The tour will last about an hour and you’ll visit the main building and grounds including the temple, cow protection centre, gardens and woodland walk.

Tours are free and available everyday. We recommend weekdays for a quiet visit, and Sunday for a festive experience.
