At the foot of beloved Arunachala in South India, we gather for a full month to rest in the heart of Silence. The quiet refuge of the Center for Bhrathiya Dharmic and Cultural Studies is located in the small village of Adiannamalai which is approximately 6 km from Sri Ramanasramam in Tiruvannamalai. This beautifully lush and rustic sanctuary rests on the north side of the holy mountain.
Two open satsangs will also be offered to the public in the days prior to the retreat, Sunday, December 29 & Monday, December 30 at 11:00 am, located at Ramana Towers in Tiruvannamalai. You are most welcome to join us.
