Vrads Sande Retreat Centre - Programme
".... There will be no daily meditation and things like that, since this is essentially for you to retreat into yourself—introspect, brood over your condition, as Babuji Maharaj has advised—do some writing if you wish, and go back into life spiritually fresh, mentally refreshed, and fit in body and mind."
- Revered Chariji, Malampuzha, 3 March 2008
Duration: From three days to thirty days.
Participants who retreat only for three days are advised to avoid reading books of any kind (including Mission literature), as well as watching videos or movies during this brief period. They will not be given any work tasks, except for their meal preparation and final clean-up.
For those who stay longer than three days, we suggest some work of short duration at the retreat centre and ashram.
