The Shrine of the Masters at Crystal Hermitage is a museum that houses relics from our lineage of spiritual masters. It includes objects that belonged to Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramhansa Yogananda and other modern-day saints.

The shrine is located in a terraced garden with panoramic views of the surrounding forested hills. It is open to all for meditation and for the precious opportunity to absorb the holy vibrations of the masters imbued in these objects that they once owned and used. It is our privilege to share the power of the masters through these objects with devotees and visitors from around the world.

A small gift shop sells unique devotional items and beautiful handcrafted gifts.
