It was a three days programme conducted by Swami Sri Krishnanada ji. The Retreat was attended by 33 devotees from HP, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Maharashtra, Assam and WB.

The salient features of the Retreat were guided group meditations both in morning and evening, satsanga, individual meditation, Gita Chanting, video shows and bhajans.

Guided meditations were covered as step by step approach to meditation. Free time was used by the devotees for individual meditation, introspection and silent reading.

During the entire programme, devotees observed complete silence which made the Retreat much more special and significant.

The guided mediations were found to be extremely useful for both the new devotees as well as the old-timers.  The new students learnt what exactly is to be done through step by step in the meditation routine, and the old timers got a reminder of what they were not doing or neglecting!!
