2. SPURS Retreat Ranch at Austin, TX, USA
Earlier this year SMSF procured the SPURS Retreat Ranch for the Americas, in Austin, USA (http://www.srcm.org/members/ssandesh/2007/2007_23.jsp ). We are happy to announce that Rev. Master has permitted us to commence the Retreat Programs at SPURS starting 4th September 2007, the auspicious birthday of Shri Krishna (Krishna Jayanthi, or Janmashtami). As our brothers and sisters may recall, it was exactly a year ago on this auspicious day, Rev. Master permitted us to begin the search for the property.
We have already received several requests for participation in the retreat program. We request abhyasis interested in participating to review the details below and submit their application form at the earliest.

Please refer to the program description at the link above for details on the Retreat Programs at SPURS.
Rev. Master has described the purpose of the retreat as follows:
"a RETREAT was always for the few, who needed to retreat from everyday life, and retire in seclusion to introspect, meditate, brood over one's inner condition etc. The purpose was to re-enter normal everyday life refreshed spiritually to face life with a renewed sense of purpose, to restore balance to one's life. A retreat can never be for the many or for the Multitude"
It is with this Guidance that the Retreat Program at SPURS has been designed. The highlights of the program are as follows:
