Pune Retreat Centre - Purpose
The minimum required stay at the Retreat is three nights and you may stay for a maximum of fifteen nights. Applicants who wish to stay beyond their approved period may extend their stay with the permission of the Retreat manager in charge. The maximum stay allowed including such extensions should not exceed fifteen nights.
The following extract from Rev Master's talks gives the purpose and guidelines for the Retreat Centre.
"The Retreat ... is proposed to have a preceptor couple living in this facility to give sittings when necessary. Please note that this is not an ashram, and 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. The facility is of course free of all costs, as everywhere else in Shri Ram Chandra Mission, but of course, you have to pay for your own transport, and such other facilities as you may need personally with you. Telephone facilities will be available onsite for limited use ..."
