For those who want to get acquainted not only in theory, but also in practice with the secrets of spiritual life, and would like to try out what life is like in a religious community based on the Eastern tradition, we offer different forms of training both in Budapest and in Krishna Valley.
Spiritual life is not just about the philosophy or a belief, but it’s an experience, a spiritual realization. We welcome on our trainings those, who want to progress on the path of self-realization, and want to gain life-long spiritual experiences.
