International Vaisnavi Retreat 2020 in Govardhana
We wish to invite all interested ISKCON 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.
The annual International Vaisnavi Retreat in Govardhana was started in 2011 by the Vrindavan Institute for Higher Education (VIHE) with the aim of facilitating spiritual association among women in bhakti. The retreat offers a wonderful opportunity for women from all over the world, who are eager for sadhvi-sanga.
The schedule is designed to maximize devotional synergy. Each retreat includes Krsna-katha, philosophical presentations and practical workshops by senior vaisnavis, sharing of realization by Prabhupada’s disciples, kirtanas, inspirational reading before japa, mridanga and kartala lessons, dramas and art exhibitions.
