A bit of the Himalayas in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The Sadhu Sanga Retreat 2015 will be held at the Art of Living Retreat Center which offers a sattvic atmosphere ideal for devotional activities. Located at Boone, North Carolina, it is just a 2-hour scenic drive from Charlotte airport (CLT) or a 3-hour drive from Raliegh-Durham airport (RDU).


Currently we are out of all onsite accommodation. However, we have a limited amount of offsite accommodation available at nearby motels at discounted prices. The motels are about a 15-minute drive from the retreat center. They have rooms with different sizes of beds (all the way from Twin to King) and different number of beds (1-4). We will allocate the appropriate room for everyone depending on their group size to ensure everyone is comfortable. Families will get their own rooms. Individuals will share their room with other individuals of the same gender.



Here are some of the illustrious kirtaneers who have graciously confirmed their attendance at the Sadhu Sanga Retreat as of now:


Accommodation at the retreat center will open at 12 noon on Friday, May 22, 2015. On Friday, dinner will be served at 5.30 pm followed by kirtans from 7 pm to 10 pm. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll have the full morning program from 4.15 am to 8 am (including the Srimad Bhagavatam class) followed by kirtans from 9 am to 10.30 pm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served on both days. On Monday, we’ll again have the morning program from 4.15 am to 8 am followed by kirtans from 9 am to 1 pm. Breakfast and to-go lunch will be served on Monday at 8 am and 1 pm, respectively. Accommodation will be available until 2 pm on Monday, May 25, 2015.

  • There is no greater misfortune in this world then being bereft of the association of devotees, particularly members of Srila Prabhupada’s family and the Holy Name. There is no greater fortune then being in the association of our glorious devotee family members chanting the Holy Names and hearing the glories of the Supreme Lord and His devotees.

  • This is my first time ever attending retreat like this. I received amazing experience. Felt the POWER of the Holy Name in congregational chanting with pure devotees. The energy was SO powerful it made me cry.

  • Sadhu Sanga Retreat 2014 event was one glimpse of spiritual world. Experienced extreme joy that I couldn’t with hold . This joy was nothing like of this material world . Never felt such joy in any of mundane vacations I had earlier. My realization is “material world is perverted reflection of spiritual world” as told by His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. Srila prabhupad ki jaya.

  • The chanting of the holy names in the association of Vaishnavas is so uplifting that one relishes it more and more every second. The separation from the association of Vaishnavas is so painful that one wishes next year’s sadhu sanga retreat could be tomorrow. I realize that I need more association of vaishnavas and be more serious in my devotional life for everything else is simply time pass. Through the heart-felt kirtans, I feel I need to be a more sincere devotee, a more encouraging father, a more compassionate husband, a more tolerant son, and overall a “gentleman” in all my affairs. Thank you for all of this and I hope to be a more integral part next year.

Please note that the entry to the retreat is strictly restricted to registered guests. As we have exceeded the maximum capacity planned for the retreat both from logistics and safety perspectives, unfortunately, we won’t be able to serve new guests at this point. Also, there are no walk-ins or day passes. There will be a security team that would check the wrist bands and allow only the registered guests into the kirtan and prasadam halls. So please don’t plan on bringing unregistered guests!
