Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Alachua Temple Live in HD

HD Camera


Welcome to the live webcast from New Raman Reti, the Hare Krishna temple in Alachua, Florida, USA. The HD camera broadcasts a live image every 20 seconds, panning around the temple room and altar. Sometimes there’s not much to see: the temple interior, the decorative gates. At other times you can see the deities (sacred forms) of Krishna, or devotees gathered for chanting or a class. Click on medium or full screen for a larger view. See the high definition and regular camera side by side, in dual camera view.

What you can hear

When you click on LISTEN, you can hear the live sound from the temple room. If you happen to log on during the morning program, you may hear the lecture or morning kirtan (prayer) session. When there's nothing going on, we'll often play a recording of sacred chants. If you prefer not to be tethered to a computer while listening, you'll be pleased to know that there's a whole new generation of smart devices that can stream's Alachua Temple Live sound throughout your home and car. Take a look at our white paper and how-to instructions (scroll down to point #2).

Known Issues

We’re up about 90% of the time, though sometimes choppy or interrupted. If you’re a regular and notice we're down, please let us know through our feedback form or call us, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST, at 386-462-0481.

We try our best to provide you with recent lecture podcasts. Every now and then we encounter a recording error and the lecture doesn't get recorded. Sorry.

With our audio channel, what you hear usually lags behind what you see on the still images by up to a minute. That’s normal. The amount of delay between picture and sound equals the pre-loading buffer time of your audio software. (Pre-loading is used by your audio software to avoid skipping of your audio feed.)

If you click on our audio channel and your computer asks what you’d like to do with the ".m3u" file, open it with the latest version of WinAmp, a free player for this sort of audio.   For Mac, use VLC.
