Dear Devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances.  All glories to Srila Prabhupada!  All glories to Guru Maharaja!

Following the successes of the Malaga and Kandersteg Spiritual Retreats, we are pleased to announce that Guru Maharaja decided to hold the European Spiritual Retreat 2011 in Iskcon Radhadesh, Belgium.

Radhadesh is situated in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Belgian Ardennes. The Iskcon Radhadesh Temple is well known as a centre for Vedic studies within Europe.  It is the home of Sri Sri Radha-Gopinatha, Sri Sri Jagannatha-Baladeva-Subhadra and Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai.  Holding the retreat there will provide a wonderful opportunity for everyone to associate with the Radhadesh devotees and devotees from all around Europe.

The retreat will also include an exciting  day trip with Guru Maharaja to attend the Amsterdam Ratha Yatra.

Please find details for the retreat below and make your bookings as soon as possible. We look forward to receiving you for a wonderful week, full of spiritual bliss with Guru Maharaja.

your servants,
