Since ancient days, the full moon in July has been honored around the world as Guru Purnima, the great celebration of devotion to the Guru. To a devotee, there is no gift greater than the Guru, who embodies the Truth, the Way, and the Realization in person.

Join devotees of Avatar Adi Da Samraj to celebrate His abundant gifts of Wisdom and His liberating Blessing.

Accommodation options

Since we expect many people retreat rooms at the Danda are only for those who really need one. All others are offered dormitory style accommodation. There are also camping, B&B, or hotel options in the area or if you have devotee friends in the neighborhood you can ask them if they can accommodate you.

If you have specific (health) reasons you can ask for a room, and we will let you know if there is one available.
