This morning at 3:40am we went to Yoga West
1535 South Robertson Boulevard,
T + 1 (310) 552-4647
To recite Japji sahib followed by a Kundalini Yoga Kriya and Aquarian sadhana mantra chants. Then went to the Gurdwara on Preuss
Guru Ram Das Ashram
1620 Preuss Rd.
Los Angeles, California 90035
Sevadar: +1 310 858-7691
For the Gurdwara programme including kirtan. It was a fantastic start to the day and something we missed so much.
Afterwards we went to Trader Joes to get some fruit for Harkirat and Simran Sat Sangeet to thank them. Also I had been looking on the website airbnb for accommodation to stay until this Sunday. Even the ‘budget’ motels here charge around $165 a night! Ideally we were looking for a apartment, also if possible which would be walking distance from Preuss…I do not ask for much!! I sent off a couple of enquiries and was waiting for a reply.
We went back to the house and got talking to Hakirat and his wife ……..they said if we are comfortable here stay until Sunday…..! We happily agreed and felt very thankful.
For lunch we went to the Khalsa Corps kitchen attached to the Gurdwara. The kitchen is to serve EVERYBODY, regardless of religion, caste, creed, social status…..the lungar is totally free or if you want, you can give a donation. This happens at all Gurdwaras all over the world – anyone can go in to have lungar. There was lentils, vegetables, rice, yoghurt and rice pudding. I have come to the conclusion that my body cannot eat Indian food due to health issues, so instead Sangeet had lunch. We chatted to a few members of the sangat, they were very warm and cheerful.
Afterwards we went to Vegan Glory where I had my lunch!
8393 Beverly Blvd
This is an old favourite and the food is excellent, we first discovered this restaurant earlier this year. All the dishes are worth trying and we can definitely recommend this restaurant.
Later I washed my hair and got ready to go to a good friends house for Rehraas Sahib, the evening 31 minute meditation of Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur followed by supper. It was good to see Ravi, and his family. We chatted to the sangat especially as we knew a few of them from previous trips.
For email subscribers:
To complete a wonderful day we headed over to Babycakes NYC
236 North Larchment Blvd
+1 (855) 462-2292
The doughnuts and cakes at this location are all gluten free and vegan.
I believe we have to taste and try everything twice to give the audience a fair review….the things we have to put ourselves through!!

Hi Mandeep – thanks for the regular updates, I really enjoy reading them! I’m sending off my visa application to go to Algeria 30th Oct – wish me luck!
Your good friend Chris
That is fantastic you go to some amazing ‘off the beaten track’ locations. All the best!
Very interesting Mandeep. By the way, I meant to mention this a while ago that the commonly accepted spelling in English of the meal/food that is served in the Gurdwaras is “langar” rather than”lungar”. To be precise “Guru Ka Langar”.
