Shanti Mandir, is a community-oriented nonprofit organization located in Walden, NY that offers a comprehensive program of activities to improve people’s lives through the practices of meditation, yoga, chanting, workshops, retreats, Indian classical music concerts, healthy and delicious food, and four charitable activities.
