Visiting Kali Mandir

Kali Mandir is a shrine to the Divine Mother in a personal home on a private street in a residential neighborhood. Our mission is to promote the traditional culture of Sanatana Dharma, to enable all devotees to come closer to Divine Mother Kali and to encourage spiritual values like modesty and respect. The way we dress and the way we act has an impact on ourselves as well as others around us. To help maintain the sanctity and purity of the mandir, we request that you follow our dress code, etiquette guidelines and hours.

Dress Code

  • Please bathe before visiting the mandir and wear clean clothes.
  • Please do not wear shorts, short skirts or tank-tops (exception: small children can wear shorts).
  • Do not wear leather in the mandir.
  • Shoes are not allowed past the gate of Mother’s courtyard.

Etiquette

  • Do not bring meat, fish, eggs, alcohol, ganja or illegal drugs onto the property.
  • Do not come while intoxicated.
  • Turn off or silence your cell phone. If you need to make a call, please do so outside.
  • Do not pick tulsi leaves or flowers from the gardens.
  • Do not point your feet towards deities or sit with your back to the altar.
  • Out of consideration of our neighbors, please do not loiter or make noise in our parking area or wander through the neighborhood.

Offerings

  • All are welcome to bring offering for Ma such as flowers, fruit, sweets, ghee, sesame oil, perfume, incense and new jewelry or new saris. All offerings must not contain any meat, eggs, gelatin, onion or garlic. Please read ingredients very carefully. In donating milk, please note that we only use organic whole milk.

Outdoor shrines

  • As we are in a high fire-danger area, lighting candles, oil lamps, camphor or incense is strictly forbidden. All are welcome to bathe the beautiful Shiva Lingam installed in our garden with water only. Do not pour milk or any other substances besides water on the Shiva Lingam.

Hours

  • Out of consideration for our neighbors and residents, please strictly observe hours and do not loiter or make noise in our parking area or wander though the neighborhood.
