The VIHE Winter Retreats

Every year after Kartika the VIHE holds the Holy Name Retreat and the Govardhana Retreat at the foot of Giriraja. Join us for Krsna-katha, ecstatic Kirtanas and many breathtaking darsanas of Giriraja Govardhana. The sublime atmosphere of the sacred Govardhana Hill enables those who live and preach outside of the Holy Dhama to immerse themselves in the magical world of Krsna's pastimes. We invite you to join us for this unique opportunity to enhance your devotional life and preaching with an unforgettable experience.

Holy Name Retreat: December 3-8, 2023

Govardhana Retreat: December 12-19, 2023
