This event is also the 8th Balashram Trek and aims to raise funds for the Hariharananda Residential School in Odisha, India.

Our beloved Shri Guruji, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, is expected to attend this event along with Rajarshi Peterananda and other teachers. There will be daily guided kriya meditations.
