Spiritual seekers find refuge at Self-Realization Fellowship’s temples, ashrams, and meditation centers around the world. Its Mount Washington site serves as the organization’s international headquarters and is aptly named Mother Center. Landscaped with Japanese gardens, roses, a lotus pool, and views of the Los Angeles skyline, it is an urban oasis. Visitors should plan to spend at least half an hour exploring the grounds, and it's not necessary to be religious or spiritual to enjoy the serenity of this sacred place.
