Registration is mandatory for every attendee. By registering, you will receive 3 days of onsite accommodation, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes — all these at a heavily subsidized fee of just $150 per person. This offer is valid only until Dec 31, 2014 or until the 800 onsite spots are filled – whichever happens first. Afterwards, only offsite accommodation will be available and the fee will be $175 per person.


Last year, we ran out of all 800 onsite and 400 offsite spots. So, please register immediately to guarantee your spot for this wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the nectar of the holy names!


A bit of the Himalayas in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The retreat center offers a sattvic atmosphere ideal for devotional activities. Located in 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).


The retreat center has spacious rooms onsite, overlooking the beautiful scenery of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Each room has four twin beds and a private bathroom. Each room will be shared by four adults (6 years or older).  The rooms are all within walking distance from the kirtan and prasadam halls. We will also be running campus shuttles every 15 minutes for elderly devotees to commute easily.



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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
