SADHU SANGA 2021 - MAY 28th to 31st 2021!


SADHU SANGA 2020 CANCELLED

SADHU SANGA 2020 CANCELLED

Dear Sadhus,

Hare Krsna. Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

“It is the worst year in my entire life”. We all laughed when those words came recently from our little nephew who has been home all day due to lockdown and whose “entire life” has only been 6 years so far.

Now, we ourselves feel the same way too, except that it’s not so funny. The reason being we had to make the most heart-rending decision to cancel this year’s Sadhu Sanga retreat. The detailed rationale can be found in this letter from His Holiness Indradyumna Swami, the chief organizer of the retreat.

We will be refunding the registration fees everyone paid, including most of the Paypal fees, except for a deduction of $10 per person to cover the costs for some of the non-refundable air tickets that were bought long back to get good deals. We’re still trying to recover as much of those tickets as we can, at least in the form of vouchers that can be used by others, etc. Any funds recovered will be used for sponsoring the disciples of Srila Prabhupada for next year’s retreat.

All refunds would be done back to the same Paypal account from which the registration fees were paid. As there are about a thousand devotees for whom we still have to refund, the refunds will take some time and we hope to complete them all by the first week of May. Meanwhile, please don’t file any “dispute” in Paypal as that’ll complicate the refund process for everyone if PayPal blocks our account. If you have any questions, please email us at info@sadhusangaretreat.com.

We will miss serving you all very much this year.

‘duḥkha-madhye kona duḥkha haya gurutara?’
‘kṛṣṇa-bhakta-viraha vinā duḥkha nāhi dekhi para’

Translation
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu asked, “Of all kinds of distress, what is the most painful?”

Śrī Rāmānanda Rāya replied, “Apart from separation from the devotee of Kṛṣṇa, I know of no unbearable unhappiness.”

your servants,
Govinda caran das and Rasika Siromani dasi.

Registration

Please read before you book…

Welcome to Sadhu Sanga Kirtan Retreat 2019. To serve you better, we require that every attendee registers – including infants.

Currently we only have offsite accommodation located at a 15-min drive from the retreat center. By registering, you will receive 3 days of offsite accommodation, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes — all these at a subsidized fee of just $210 per person.

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

OFFSITE ACCOMODATION

Due to unprecedented enthusiasm from devotees all over the country, all the 1000 beds in our onsite accommodation were sold out within the first 8 minutes of opening our registration. So we have booked most of the hotels, lodges, cottages, cabins that are available nearby to accommodate another 1000 devotees.

These offsite accommodation places are at a 15-20 minute scenic drive from the retreat center and vary widely in amenities including standard queen/double beds with private bath.

We’ll allocate rooms/beds based on the size of the registered group (e.g. four persons registering together will be given preference for a room with two queen beds) and on a first-come first-served basis.  As we have negotiated discounted group rates due to bulk booking, we’re able to offer the entire retreat for an offsite registration fee of just $210 per person. This includes accommodation for 3 nights, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes on all 4 days and parking. Kids aged five or less can attend free of charge as long as they share a bed with one of their parents.
