The theme for this year is “Sevonmukhe hi jihvādau” — “Cooking and honoring prasada”. We will have HG Kisori Devi Dasi teaching “The art of cooking for Lord Krishna”. HG Yasomati Devi Dasi will be teaching “The glories of surrender to the Holy Name”, HG Kusa Devi Dasi speaking of the teachings of Srila Prabhupada to his spiritual daughters, HG Madhurya Gaurangi Devi Dasi will be teaching bhoga offering and HG Prasanta Devi Dasi narrating “Lunch in the forest”. The retreat also features live cooking workshops with HG Kisori Devi Dasi.

The aim of the event is to facilitate spiritual association among women in bhakti. Focused on hearing and chanting, it offers a wonderful opportunity to female sadhakas from all over the world who are eager for sadhu-sanga. The program is enhanced by the participation of many disciples of Srila Prabhupada, who generously share the lessons they have learned from him. The retreat is held under the banner of “Celebrating Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy.”

We wish to invite all interested ladies, youth forum girls and preachers to come and experience this wonderful opportunity for sadhvi sanga in the holy land of Vrindavana, under the shelter of Govardhana.
