Veda Foundation, a Hare Krishna temple located west of DeLand, Florida is a serene oasis comprising of lakes, forest walks, guest houses, organic gardens & a centre for cow protection. A safe, special and sacred place of Krishna’s cows. A spiritual oasis in the heart of Florida, established by H.H Bhakti Charu Swami in 2018 as a humble offering to His beloved spiritual master Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. This place is a sanctuary for all, providing opportunities to experience the science, culture & joy of spirituality. We offer authorised Vedic samskaras (life events), yajnas (fire sacraments), delicious prasad (sanctified food), catering & community hall rental for a variety of occasions. This project aims to provide a sanctuary for cows, to protect and nurture them, help society develop their love for cows, and establish the principles of SIMPLE LIVING AND HIGH THINKING.
We have a free weekly Sunday Mind Body Soul Event where we taste the bliss of yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, healthy living, healthy eating, and a chance to pet and feed our 16 cows! Bring your friends and family, spend the day with the cows, and enjoy the calm, serene and divine atmosphere of our temple against the magnificent backdrop of the Ocala national rainforest. A place you’ll simply fall in love with! It’s as simple as that!
