Swami_DhyanayoganandaSwami Dhyanayogananda has been part of the Trabuco Canyon monastery since 2016 and is currently the lead monk there. He was born in Argentina and raised Catholic but when he was 19 he discovered a Ramakrishna ashram in Buenos Aires and became part of that community. He joined the order in 2001 and spent seven years in India. 

Every July Fourth, the Trabuco Canyon monastery, situated on 40 acres of rolling hills, is the venue for the Southern California Vedanta Society’s celebration of Swami Vivekananda’s Mahasamadhi with a puja in the Chapel and great food. Hundreds of devotees attend each year. It’s also the monastery where Swami Yogeshananda, founder of the Vedanta Center of Atlanta, spent his last years teaching devotees and brahmacharis.
