vedanta It takes some doing to get there, under the freeway through a winding street uphill, hidden under the rush of freeways. The Vedanta Society opens the path to understanding the "Vedas", the philosophical basis of Hinduism. The teachings pre-date Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. If you are curious about the oneness of existence, the delusion of maya, karma, reincarnation and the harmony of religions; browse through the bookstore, a comparative religion gem crowded with works that reflect the City of Angels' eclectic spirituality. The Hollywood center is open daily for worship.
