Is prasadam cost included in the registration fee?

The ILS fee covers three meals per day. There will be some identification which will allow you to enter. We will do our best to provide for non-spiced and simple diets. We will include steamed or boiled vegetables, plain rice, kitri and a variety of fruits and grains in the menu.

What about accommodation arrangements?

To streamline the booking of accommodations in Mayapur and to make it easier for attendees to find rooms that suit their particular needs, the rooms will be arranged via the Mayapur guesthouse management. Please contact them directly via email
We humbly ask you to be patient in regard to getting notification about your room booking. The Mayapur guesthouse department has already set aside adequate rooms for the ILS. However sorting it all out and communicating with everyone takes time since there are a large number of people calling for rooms. Please understand that your response from the guesthouse management may take few days.
