Path of Freedom from Sorrows

There will be parallel sessions for youth and children age 5 & up, complete with interactive lectures, practical sessions, games and crafts. These sessions will be conducted by Samanijis and volunteers.
Due to un-availability of rooms in Arsh Vidya, we have decided to stay at near by hotel and use Arsh Vidya for our sessions. (except early morning sessions). Morning sessions will happen in Hotel itself for every one convenience. Detailed schedule will be published soon.

  4. How about early morning yoga sessions etc? As most of people will be in hotel, hence we procured basement of hotel for early morning sessions. Rest of sessions will happen in camp.

  6. How we will go and come back from hotel to camp? Individual families or individuals are responsible for transportations. As we can imagine, lot of cars will be traveling each way, anyone will be happy to give you ride.
