What about Transportation?
To arrange for your transportation from the airport or train station please visit
What about accommodations?
ILS Team doesn’t book/arrange/manage rooms for you.
To streamline the booking of accommodations in Mayapur and to make it easier for attendees to find rooms that suit their particular needs, you will need to book your rooms through the Mayapur Guesthouse management.
Once you get your registration number for the ILS, please contact Venu Gopal Prabhu, at firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com have an ILS booking number. Timely registration will insure that you can get the best accommodations available.
What if I have special accommodation requirements?
In case of special requirements such as: you want to share a room with a particular devotee, want a single room or desire to be in a particular guesthouse, please inform the Guesthouse Management accordingly. Especially in the case of special needs and requests, early registration is highly recommended. Special requests can only be honored on a first come, first served basis. Increased costs may be incurred.
Will someone contact me regarding my registration?
We humbly ask you to be patient in regard to getting notification about your room booking. The Mayapur Guest House 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 huge number of people calling for rooms. Please understand that your response from the Guest House Management may take a few days.
What about Prasadam?
The ILS fee covers three meals per day. There will be some identification, which will allow you to enter. For your convenience prasadam will be available the evening before the ILS, February 3rd, and breakfast will be served in the morning after the ILS ends, on the 12th of February.
What type of Prasadam will be served?
We will do our best to provide for gentle and simple diets. We will include steamed or boiled vegetables, plain rice, kitchari and a variety of fruits and grains in the menu.
