Welcome to the live webcast from New Raman Reti, the Hare Krishna temple in Alachua, Florida, USA. The new 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. Browse the tour of camera presets, Mangala or Darshan Arati, recorded daily at 4:30 and 7:30 a.m.
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.

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.)
