Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Loving Sai Ram to everyone!
As we count down our time to attend the much-awaited SSSGC USA Region 2 retreat 2022, the committee would like to remind everyone that we are still in the middle of a pandemic and need to take prudent measures to protect ourselves and our fellow retreat participants.
Please ensure the following measures are followed before and during the Retreat:
1. If you or your family member(s) feel sick or have any of the following symptoms: Fever, sore throat, coughing, sneezing, allergy-like symptoms, please avoid coming to the Retreat.
2. Please have a copy of your vaccination card or take a picture of the card on your phone. Sevadals will verify the records at the entrance to the campus.
3. Please take a home test on the day of ( or at least 24 hours prior to) the retreat. FREE tests can be ordered at: https://special.usps.com/testkits or you can obtain one at your local Pharmacy.
4. Masks are MANDATORY for everyone at the retreat. Please use Surgical or N-95 or KN-95 masks. DO NOT use cloth masks.
5. It is recommended to eat your food outside (tents provided) in order to maintain social distancing.
5. Please don't congregate anywhere inside the Temple for long periods of time. If you want to talk to someone, please step outside to the open space.
6. In addition to the devotional hall, we have also provided tents outside with a TV to watch the devotional programs.
7. If you have any of the symptoms after your arrival, please call 908-445-5258 or go to the Help Desk.
8. Please minimize physical contact such as greeting other devotees with a hug.
9. Starting now and leading up to the retreat, be cautious with regards to exposure by wearing a mask when going out and minimizing exposure to others.
Safety Message with Disclaimer

With the boundless Grace of Bhagawan, we are able to gather together once again at this sacred retreat to serve, worship and learn together.  It is important that we pay attention to the discipline and sacrifice required for a safe and healthy celebration.  Each participant should be aware that travel and gathering together during the weekend will pose potential risks to transmit or be infected by COVID. 


The organizers have followed all state and county guidelines for distance and density requirements.  Hand sanitizers will be made available at the entrance of all meeting halls and rooms.  Masks should be brought by each attendee and should be worn as much as possible.


If you or your companions have underlying health factors such as heart disease, cancer, major organ disease or a compromised immune system, you may wish to avoid attending the event without taking extra precautions and the advice of your physician.  Those that are not vaccinated pose a higher risk and are encouraged to stay home.

With Love

SSSGC USA Region 2 Retreat Registration Team



With love for all,
Pradosh Dessai.
