For more information about traveling to the Ashram by car, bus, or plane, please view our Visitor’s Guide.

Accommodations

Sri Govinda Mela is free and open to all, and everyone in attendance will be offered full prasadam (sanctified food) three times a day.

Lodging

We are offering a limited number of rooms, prepared camping arrangements, and open space to pitch tents or park recreational vehicles at the Ashram. Some our facilities are rustic but we hope to make everyone feel at home.

Contributions

From our hearts we are freely offering this festival experience to everyone who wishes to participate, but we wouldn’t be able to do this without the contributions we receive from everyone who values this experience and feels naturally inspired to give something in return. So although there is no specific cost or required donation from anyone who attends, we will say that if every adult who attends the Mela did contribute $100, then the event would cover its own expenses and we would be able to put our full energy into adoringly serving all of our revered guests.

Registration

We ask that everyone who would like stay at the Ashram during Sri Govinda Mela please register with us in advance so that we can serve you best.

A deposit of $20 is requested at the time of registration to reserve a space to stay at the Ashram and confirm participation in the Mela. This can be recovered upon arrival at the Ashram or may be credited to any additional contribution you wish to make to the Mela.

Everyone who registers will receive a free Sri Govinda Mela t-shirt upon arrival at the Ashram and have an early chance to reserve a place on the charter bus to San Francisco.
