Quiet Heart Pilgrimage to India!
RESERVATIONS:  To reserve, interested pilgrims must complete the Quiet Heart Pilgrimage To India Medical Statement and Liability Waiver and send them in with their deposit of $1500. (Email for these forms.)
ACCEPTANCE:  Acceptance as part of a Quiet Heart Pilgrimage to India! group is at the discretion of the pilgrimage Coordinator.  If the reservation deposit and paperwork is accepted, $500 of the deposit will be nonrefundable in the event of cancellation for any reason.  

CANCELLATIONS:  Regarding cancellations for any reason, no refunds will be given after the pilgrimage start date.  Please email for the current Payment & Refund Policy for all other refunds given for amounts received over the $500 nonrefundable deposit.

INNOCULATIONS & TRAVEL INSURANCE: Pilgrims are strongly encouraged to see a Travel Doctor to be counseled on recommended shots, health precautions, and travel insurance. Note that the travel doctors have a duty to explain potential problems and shots available, however, the responsibility for Traveler’s Insurance and the choice of shots and medicines is entirely up to the pilgrim. (I get the shots according to my intuition (using reason & feeling), and I prefer to take the once a week Malaria pill.) The India government does not require visitors to have any shots.

ASHRAM ACCOMMODATION: The YSS ashrams require that their guests be currently enrolled in or have completed the SRF/YSS Lessons.

CLOTHING: Female pilgrims are required to wear modest Indian dress. This is highly respected by the Indians and is viewed as a sign of respect for their culture. It has an incredible impact on how we are received and treated while there. YSS ashrams also make this request of visiting female devotees. Arrangements will be made on the first day for shopping. Instructions will be given on how to wear and navigate gracefully and comfortably in Indian Garb.

COMING AND GOING: Your escort will be with you only for those pilgrimage dates while in India. Any departures from the itinerary for any reason will be the sole responsibility of the pilgrim. No refunds or credits will be given for any reason after the pilgrimage start date.

Included prior to arriving in India:
In-depth customized individual preparation and planning guidance, Pilgrimage Countdown Calendar, email access to your escort for any pilgrimage-related questions you may have before departure. Free flight coordination availability.

Included while in India: all meals, snacks, Indian transport, portage, accommodations, porter tips, taxes, entry fees. An American SRF/YSS member and disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda will be at your service as your escort in India. All accommodation on Twin Sharing Basis in ashrams, paying guest homes and/or hotels. (Single Supplement will apply if no roommate is available or desired.)

NOT included: International Airfare. This will allow the use of a credit card and/or frequent flyer miles for airfare. (However, Brenda will assist you in getting your airline tickets if you want and oftentimes she is able to get you the very best airfares.  Whether or not Brenda helps you with your flight plans, please be sure to confer with her about flight recommendations and making appropriate fight coordination arrangements.)

Also NOT included: Travel insurance, Indian Visa and passport fees, etc., any departures from the itinerary, any medical or emergency care, escort gratuity, expenses of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry, cyber fees, gifts, extra ashram or temple donations, flowers, medicines, etc.) and any other expenses not specified as included above.


The joy of pilgrimage begins when you make the decision to do it!
