Dear Devotees, dear Guests, dear Visitors,
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are closely following the guidelines issued by the local governments. As a result Shree Giridhar Dham, Vrindavan has been closed to the public and will stay closed until further notice. No visitors are allowed during this time, no events are held and, therefore, no livestreams are taking place. We will keep you posted as new information becomes available. Thanks for your understanding, and, in the meantime, let’s keep chanting the Divine Names!
Vrindavan is a very unique and special place. It is the heart of Krishna Himself. It is the abode of Radharani Herself. Staying and serving in Vrindavan is a great blessing, as it helps to deepen your love and bhakti towards God and Guru.
Shree Giridhar Dham Ashram offers rooms for the devotees for short or long stay. When you come to the Ashram as a guest, you are traditionally invited to offer 3 hours seva daily under the guidance of a seva coordinator. It is your voluntary service, your offering to the Lord. It is not seen as work, thus you agree for receiving no material benefits for your service, i.e. reduction of price for accommodation.
Seva means ‘selfless service’. It is a way to open your heart and develop bhakti within yourself. When done from the heart, the focus moves away from reciprocity into the pure joy of selfless giving. According to the Guru Gita, there is no difference between God and Guru, and so when we serve the Master and His mission, we are also serving the Supreme Lord Narayana Himself by allowing ourselves to be the instruments of His action.
REGISTER YOUR STAY
Important! Please note: For the time being in the Ashram you have to provide a valid travel health insurance covering home-transportation in case of emergency. The valid insurance has to be submitted at the point of registration.
