This beautiful monastery called Varsana Ecological Gardens was founded in 1983 by our spiritual masters Srila Guru Maharaj and Srila Bhakti Bhimala Harijan Maharaj. It is the principal temple of a world wide mission called Vrinda.

The daily activities of the monastery start at 04:00 AM. During the day there are different spiritual ceremonies and the residents perform various types of services in the maintance and beautification of the monastery.
Throught the course of the year, there are many festivals and spiritaul retreats, which are attended by friends and persons interested in the vaisnava way of life and vedic culture.


The presiding deities of this monastery are Sri Sri Gouranga Radha Vrajesvara.
The deity is a manifestation of the lord in this world, throught which he is giving us an opportunity to meditate on him and to serve him through various types of services.

There is a ancient tradition of wordship of their lordship, called artik, which involves offering elements like incense, fire, water, flowers, food, etc. Everyone can take part in such type of wordship of the Lord.

Maha Samadhi

The sanskrit word Maha Samadhi means complete absorption in God.

Unlike the general vedic custom, where the body of departed souls are cremated, the bodies of saintly persons, pure devotees of the lord, are preserved in this type of shrine. The purpose of this shrine is that people can visit them, wordship the these saints and remember their divine teachings.

Yoga Planetarium

Presently we are constructing a very ambitius project called "Yoga Planetarium- Eco Truly Park". This Park is consisting of building in a circular base and a conical structure. The conical form of construction is very particular. It is obtained by the free fall of a rope, which is supported on two end.

It represents the very natural form of space, where the energy inside the building is very much in harmony with the universal powers. Such characteristics are increasing the meditative atmosphere within the building. The Eco Truly Park is a offering of love and appreciation for the Supreme Lord, who is the Creator, Maintainer and Annihilator of the whole existence.

Beacuse of that, the construction work as well as the meditation in the building are meant to connect us with the Supreme Lord.
