For the second year in a row, a selected group of 9 girls from Sandipani Muni School joined the special event in Govardhana called “VAISHNAVI RETREAT” from 28th March 2019 to 2nd April 2019. All of them were so happy and particularly interested in spending a few days in the company of other spiritually inclined ladies.
The aim of the event, launched ten years ago, is to facilitate spiritual association among women in bhakti. Focused on hearing and chanting, it offers a wonderful opportunity to females 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 for some of them was their spiritual masters.
The theme for this year was “Cooking and honoring prasadam”. Several workshops were held like “The art of cooking for Lord Krishna”, “Teaching Bhoga offering”, etc. The event also includes narrating stories about Krishna such as “Lunch in the forest”. The retreat also featured live cooking workshops, Musical workshops (playing Mridanga and Kartals classes), and outings at other wonderful holy places. The students of SMS truly enjoyed the experience.
