On a 40-acre, picturesque stretch of land that overlooks Trabuco Canyon, Ramakrishna Monastery, a Vedanta monastery, peacefully enjoys nature’s company. From the parking lot, a long and ascending gravel pathway bordered by trees and bushes leads to the main building. Even from far away, everyone sees the bronze statue of Swami Vivekananda meditating above a pond. The left side of the pond is a lecture hall, a library and a bookshop. Public lectures are held at 11a on Sundays. The Vedantic ideal is harmony of religions. Books of world's major religions are seen in the library. To meditate, the shrine is just a little north of the main building. Enjoy the peacefulness, and do take time for a serene stroll. -Hoiyin Ip
