Get up to a cup of tea/coffee served at your rooms. After you attend to your daily ablutions, a visit to the in-campus Radha Krishna temple for the morning aarti at 8 am rejuvenates your mind-body combine. Morning breakfast follows at 9 am.
You could visit Satsang Hall to catch up on newspapers and television or walk in-campus, sit in the nearby park or take a stroll to the nearby Saibaba or Hanuman temples. After the vegetarian lunch (without onion/garlic) served at noon, its time for a short nap.
Chat up with your fellow inmates at tea time; catch up with your hobbies or meet up with your family during visiting hours. Dinner is served after the evening aarti and that draws a peaceful day to a close.

It is said, “Life begins at sixty.” And rightly so. After a busy life, it is time to catch some breath and enjoy each passing moment.
For in the end, its not the years in your life that count… It’s the life in your years…
