Accommodation

To accommodate devotees at our retreats we are renting the rooms in the vicinity of Jatipur town at Bal Krsna Bhavan (BKB) and Ganga Dham (GD). The rooms are quite bright and spacious by Indian standards and usually accommodate 2 to 3 devotees with or without attached bath, depending on the place. The beds are usually fitted with bedding. We also arrange for a car to drive devotees from their ashramas to the place of classes.

The fee includes all days of the retreat for one person (lodging, prasadam (except first and last days), seminar materials, pandal, trips). Fees are differentiated according to the room one chooses.
AB means "with attached bathroom", NAB means "without an attached bathroom". The room options, listed below, may not be equipped with geysers (water heaters); you should bring your own heating rod. All the fees are per 1 person (not per room).

This clause is meant to help us determine in advance the number of confirmed participants, which is necessary in order to plan the various facilities required to run the VIHE programs.
