The Jyoti Mandir — “Temple of Light” in Sanskrit — is a small temple at a private residence in Encinitas, California.
We sponsor an ongoing series of devotional music concerts, specializing in music that is oriented toward the path of Hindu Devotional Mysticism. It is our belief that the high and true purpose of music is to uplift one’s consciousness, leading to actual communion with God.
We also present an informal monthly kirtan on the first Monday of each month, from 7:30 till 9:30 p.m. The evening begins with arati and features a variety of kirtan leaders.
For concert and kirtan announcements, please subscribe to our mailing list.
Jyoti Mandir present both fixed price concerts and those listed on a suggested donation basis. Fixed price events are available for pre-sale through our Concerts page. “Suggested Donation” concerts are offered on an anonymous basis, with the listed donation serving as a guideline. Larger donations in support of our artists are greatly appreciated!
