Participate in a Hindu CeremonyHead to the Vendanta Society nestled in the Montecito foothills for a special Hindu meditation and ceremony. The 45-acre property includes a 60-year-old temple and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Here worshippers gather for a vespers service called Arati, held before sunset, that includes singing accompanied by a harmonium and a guided 15-minute meditation. The temple also offers spiritual talks, scripture classes, and pujas (special worship services), as well as a bookstore which, in addition to religious texts, stocks an impressive array of incense and music.
