With great pleasure we wish to announce the 7th Annual VIHE International Vaishnavi Retreat, which is to be held at the foot of Shri Giriraj Govardhan on March 21-26, 2017.

By this letter I am sending you our warm invitation to join in. The previous retreats have all been very rewarding. The atmosphere that is generated from the presence of all the sincere vaisnavis has captured our hearts and we cant wait to be there again together - hearing, chanting, dancing and sharing Krsna consciousness in all kinds of ways.

This year's retreat will be centered around the theme of pictorial art in ISKCON, "Windows to the Spiritual World", with recollections by a senior Shrila Prabhupad disciple, H.G. Dhriti Devi Dasi on his instructions to the artists, BBT artists Chaitanya Charitamrita painting marathon, etc. There will also be an exhibition of devotional painting. The retreat also features presentations by Shrila Prabhupada's disciple H.G. Narayani Devi Dasi on 'Community Spirit and Vaishnav qualities', Yashomati Devi Dasi from Mayapur on 'Gauranga Meditations' and H.G. Prashanta Devi Dasi on 'Krishna Kathamrita'

We wish to invite all the interested ladies, youth forum girls and preachers to come and experience this wonderful opportunity for sadhvi sanga in the holy land of Vrindavan under the shelter of Govardhan.

You could print the attached poster and put it up on your temple, community and naam hatta notice boards. You may also post it on the local ISKCON Internet forums, Facebook pages, websites, etc.
Please contact Balaji Priya Devi Dasi at to let us know your plans. The bus will be leaving from the main road outside the ISKCON temple in Vrndavana on March 21 at around 8 am. We are looking forward to spend that wonderful week in your association. Please spread the word among your friends.
On behalf of your servants at the VIHE,
Prasanta Devi Dasi.
