few details we are please to share with devotee,

This year in 2012, ISKCON’s 23rd Vraja Mandala Parikrama will be held this year from Sunday 4th October till Monday 2nd November.

Registration will start from Friday 25th September at our ISKCON temple in Vrindavan.

The registration fees are as follows:

Full time ISKCON/Namahatta devotees Rs. 2500
Other devotees Rs. 4500

Full time ISKCON/Namahatta devotees should bring a recommendation letter
from their temple authority in which it should be mentioned that:
– one is a full time devotee.
– one has received permission and blessings from his temple authority to
participate in the Parikrama.

The Parikrama will start on Sunday 4th October right after mangal arati at
5:00 am. All participants are kindly requested to reach Sri Vrindavan Dhama
the latest on 3th October.

Please note that one will have to arrange his own accommodation in Vrindavan
untill Sunday 4th October. The VMP Management will provide accommodation
from Monday 5th October onwards.

There will be daily walking during the Parikrama in which we will cover
average 15 km a day. Therefore we will assume that participating devotees
are in a reasonable or good health condition. The Parikrama might not be so
convenient for someone who has difficulties with walking, or who is too old,
too young or disabled. Normally a devotee should be able to cover the whole
Parikrama on his own strength.

Below is some general information regarding participation in the Parikrama.

We are looking forward to serve and assist you to the best of our abilities.
