A regional retreat for the Philadelphia region was organized from August 18 – 20, 2023. 35 Margiis and WT workers attended the program. After many years of renovation and extension work, the Ananda Vrati building is finally ready to use. This event was the first Ananda Marga retreat since the renovations started many years ago. The Margiis were happy to return to Ananda Vrati and see how beautifully the buildings have been renovated. Everything has been professionally done, and the building is designed for programs for all seasons, including the winter.
