Vasanta Vihar, part of Krishnamurti Trust Madras (headquarters of the Krishnamurti Foundation India), exists for the sole purpose of enabling people to stay here to study Krishnamurti’s Teachings by using the library (The Study), or taking part in retreats and dialogues, or engaging in informal conversations or quiet reflection.
Therefore, we expect guests not to use this place for engaging in other activities such as
Official/personal work Work From Home
Sight-seeing & shopping Yoga & meditation classes
Lectures & seminars Music concerts & cultural events
Family & social get-togethers.
Your presence on the campus, and punctuality for all meals, are expected (going out can be only in the evening between 4.30 and 7).
Mobile phones and other devices should not be used in The Study, Retreat venues, Dining Hall, and other common areas. You may use them only in your room, and that too only for essential work such as booking tickets or taxis.
