The Library is now open from 11:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Sundays. Devotees may borrow books or just sit and read. We hope to improve this facility in the coming months so that visitors to the temple can take full benefit of the resources available. John Wenuk is the librarian and he will be keeping a record of the books that are checked out.
Introduction to Bhagavat Gita, along with all the 18 chapters, Introduction to Upanishads, Isavasya Upanishad, Kato Upanishad, Keno Upanishad, Taittiriya Upanishad, Mundaka Upanishad and Kaivalya Upanishad are now available on this site. Hard copies are available in the Temple Library to borrow, or purchase for a nominal charge (cost). These can also be printed off the web.
The entire Brahma Vidya is divided into 263 volumes. A devotee reading one volume each day, in the prescribed sequence, will complete the cycle in 263 days. The cycle should then be repeated again.
