From the Bramasthan website:

“Come and float in the heavenly atmosphere of the Brahmasthan, the central point of India, described by Maharishi as the holiest of the holy places of India.

Special features of every week at Bijauri:

  • Daily auspicious Vedic recitation live, by the Maharishi Vedic Pandits.
  • One live performance of Atirudrabhishek each week, a highly auspicious Yagya for world peace performed by 1331 Maharishi Vedic Pandits – a truly unforgettable and powerful experience.
  • One live performance of Durga Saptashati each week, for the blessings of the nurturing and affluent qualities of Natural Law.
  • Longer meditation and longer practice of TM-Sidhis, in the sublime atmosphere of the Brahmasthan where more than 2000 Vedic Pandits are practising Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi programme including Yogic Flying, as well as performing Yagyas for world peace.
  • Profound videotaped lectures by Maharishi, specially chosen from some of Maharishi’s profound talks and reflections over the past 40 years. Many of these tapes have not been shown on courses before, and cover topics that we have all been wanting to hear about for decades.
  • A special, comfortable routine, designed for maximum rest and rejuvenation.
  • Delicious, wholesome, healthy meals, prepared by top Indian chefs. The food is tasty and delicious, but without those extremely hot spices that can sometimes unsettle the digestion of Western people.
  • Experienced course leaders to guide you in the knowledge and ensure your comfort.
  • All rooms for course participants are suites with private bathroom. In addition, we now have some new deluxe suites, at an extra charge.”
