The course begins in the evening on September 24th, 2016 with dinner. Check in at the ashram is September 24th, 2016 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. You should fly into New Delhi no later than September 23rd, 2016, as you will need to travel to Rishikesh to get there for check in on the 24th. We highly suggest arriving in India two or three days in advance of the course beginning. This would be helpful in recovering and resting from jet lag before the course begins.
In order to arrive at the course on time, you must leave New Delhi by early morning on September 24th, 2016. You will need to allow yourself the travel time to get from New Delhi to Rishikesh.
If you arrive early and do not want to stay in New Delhi, you could travel on to Rishikesh.
To book a room earlier than the check-in date please go to: www.parmarth.org/reservations/ to complete the online booking. Also please note "Kundalini Training - Golden Bridge" in the 'Purpose' field for identification of our group.
You should receive a response within 7 days. If you do not receive a response within 7 days, please email the ashram at email@example.com to follow up.
If you will be arriving earlier than the training registration day please arrange your own accommodations through the ashram. Please make sure to still come to registration on September 24th for the course so we may give you your room assignment and other useful information.
Golden Bridge is responsible for your accommodations beginning on September 24th. If you are arriving to Rishikesh earlier than September 24th, you will be responsible for your accommodations prior to September 24th.
Recommended hotels in New Delhi:
**Please remember, the ashram is not a hotel - there are no amenities and there is no maid service to clean every day. Keeping your room tidy will be your responsibility. It's a simple, meditative living experience.
Q: Is the food and water clean?
A: Drink only bottled water while in India. It is readily available. Do not drink water out of any tap. We suggest using bottled water to brush your teeth.
Q: What kind of food will there be at the ashram?
A: We will serve fresh vegetarian Indian food. A typical breakfast includes yogi tea (with or without milk), oatmeal, yogurt and fruit. Lunch and dinner are a vegetable subji (mix), fresh mixed vegetable salad, chapatis, rice and dahl. The food is vegetarian with many vegan options.
If you have specific dietary requirements, such as a vegan or wheat-free diet, you can bring snacks with you. We can also direct you to many healthy eateries and safe vegetable and fruit stands outside the ashram once we are in India. As long as you buy fruit that has a peel it will be fine to eat. Many vegans have traveled with us to India and had no problem finding delicious food to eat.
In addition, if you use porters to assist you with your luggage, plan on $1/piece of luggage each time you use them. For taxis within New Delhi count on $1-$2/tip. Rishikesh is small and you will have no need to use a taxi. Anywhere you need to go you can easily walk to.

Q: Any suggestions for a healthy flight?
A: Since the flight is so long we do recommend drinking plenty of water, at least 8 ounces per hour. Drinking caffeinated beverages is not recommended. If you want a special meal remember to order in advance with your airline. Vitamin C or Electrolyte packets are helpful in fortifying your immune system during the flight. Snacks of fruits and nuts will help too. When not sleeping or watching movies, take regular breaks to get up, walk around, and stretch.
Q: What should I pack?
A: Once you register you will be provided with a suggested packing list. We suggest you bring one large suitcase or duffle as checked luggage and one small bag or knapsack as your carry on. Bring an empty duffle packed into your suitcase to bring home your purchases. Don't over pack.
Remember, airlines are imposing stricter guidelines for luggage and weight. Please check with your airlines to see what their luggage policy is. Make sure the luggage you bring is luggage you can handle carrying. We recommend a bag with wheels for easier carrying.
Q: Do I need vaccinations?
A: There are no required vaccinations for travel in North India. We suggest you consult with your doctor if you are concerned about this issue, and do whatever makes you feel comfortable. The staff of Golden Bridge that has traveled to India for our trainings usually do not get vaccinations, but again, this is an individual choice. There are also sites online with helpful information.
Q: What about supplements and medicines?
A: Once you register you will be sent a list of recommended supplements and suggestions to stay healthy during your time in India. Whatever medications you are required to take at home, please continue to take them while in India.
