Important Coronavirus Update

Jai Ma!

Dear Devotees,

Because of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), Kali Mandir remains temporally closed.


Starting Monday, March 16th, Kali Mandir’s resident staff will begin a special japa sadhana each evening.


At 6pm (PDT) we will recite the powerful and protective Maha-Mritanjaya mantra 108 times, fenced with the healing mritanjaya bijas, followed by Ma’s evening arati and kirtan.


We will broadcast this live on our Facebook page. We encourage you to join us online from your home, either watching the live feed or later on your own.


Please check our Facebook page for other regular uploads of photos and video clips for online darshan of Ma. With your help, we are praying to our miraculous Ma for the health, safety and well-being of all.

Jai Ma!
