What is the first thing that you consider when buying a gift? For many, it is utility— will the receiver find it useful? In a way, utility is very closely related to the personality of the one for whom you are buying the gift. In other words, if you know the person really well, you can buy something that he or she will like and hence find useful.
According to a study by Jeff Galak and Julian Givi of Carnegie Mellon University, and Elanor F. Williams of Indiana University, thinking long-term is the way to go when you are selecting gifts.
How does 25 years of vacation sound? Incredible, right?
Imagine gifting just that to a loved one! They can travel the world, enjoy family time, and make memories in some of the most exotic locations in the world!
That’s exactly what you can gift to someone close to you when you buy them a Krishna Bhumi Holydays membership.
Who should you buy it for?
A Krishna Bhumi Holydays membership would make a lovely gift for anyone close to you.
For a Krishna devotee:
A Holydays membership seeks to transform the way one experiences Vrindavan. You can spend 7 blissful days in Sri Krishna’s land in Vrindavan’s grand township called Krishna Bhumi that’s taking shape close to the proposed Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir. All members can access the same amenities like a Krishna Bhumi resident apart from enjoying putting up in a luxury apartment throughout their week-long stay in Vrindavan. What’s more, there will also be a concierge service available on request so that members can enjoy pre-arranged pujas, parikramas, and darshans for a hassle-free experience.

For a solo traveller, couple, or a family:
A Holydays membership gives you the option to choose the apartment size based on the number of people in your family/ group. There are studio, 1BHK, and 2BHK apartments to choose from depending on the needs of the person you have in mind.
Is Holydays membership an affordable option?
Gifting usually means working within a budget. You will be happy to know that a Holydays membership comes with an easy instalment plan spread across 18 months and one reasonable down payment.
As an introductory offer, the membership is free from any Annual Service Charges (used for the upkeep of all the luxurious amenities) for the first five years.
Memories are one of the best things that you can gift anyone. A Krishna Bhumi Holydays membership lets you do just that. Be it a wedding or a birthday or a gift for any special occasion, a Holydays membership makes an excellent choice. Expand their horizon and enrich their lives. Initiate them on the path of a spiritually elevating journey in the land of Sri Krishna.
Do you know why every year millions of devotees visit Vrindavan? They do so to seek Sri Krishna and to soak in the glory that pervades this holy dham. However, in order to be able to imbibe the blessed atmosphere, you need to feel at home. You need to relax and let the atmosphere seep inside you and create its own magic.
That is exactly what a Krishna Bhumi Holydays membership will help you do.
Rejuvenate yourself at Krishna Bhumi’s ayurvedic spa
Krishna Bhumi has been conceived as a magnificent township complete with all facilities and amenities of modern living. Among a host of wonderful features, it also includes a premium wellness center with ayurvedic spa. As a Holydays member, you can rejuvenate yourself at this spa through relaxing massage sessions. Studies show that massage therapies are a good way to rebalance our body chakras. It is believed that chakras are nothing but energy forces that flow through our soul or spirit. Sometimes, the chakras need to be realigned or rebalanced, which help in the overall wellbeing. In fact, it also helps you connect better with your environment and to be ‘in the moment’. A massage at the Krishna Bhumi ayurvedic spa will help you prepare yourself to imbibe the spirit of Vrindavan even better.
Take a dip in the swimming pool to feel refreshed
There will be a beautiful swimming pool right within the gates of Krishna Bhumi. As a Holydays member, when you stay in your fully-furnished luxury apartment, you can walk to the swimming pool and take a refreshing dip in its cool waters. Studies show that swimming is a wonderful exercise not only for the body but also for the mind and the soul. While swimming, all you have to do is concentrate on your strokes and movements, which is a great way to remove all static thoughts. In fact, many believe that swimming can be as beneficial for the mind as meditation. In a way, it is like doing yoga in water. And once your mind and body feel relaxed, they are all the more prepared to soak in the blissful experience called Vrindavan.
Breathe in fresh air in the open green space
Krishna Bhumi will be surrounded by acres of green space. You can walk in the beautiful greenery all around, meditate in the open spaces, and feel connected to nature at once. It is also believed that green is one of the most restful colours and produces harmonious feelings which in turn diffuse anxiety. And once your mind is calm, you can concentrate even more on feeling one with Krishna.
Be a part of kirtans and bhajans in the upcoming Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir
Krishna Bhumi is taking shape adjacent to the proposed Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir. There will be bhajans, kirtans, and spiritual discourses that you can be a part of. And what better way to experience Vrindavan than to immerse yourself in thoughts of Krishna?
A Holydays membership gives you ample opportunities to unwind your body so that your mind is ready to immerse itself in Bhakti bhava.
Just imagine that out of hundreds of countries in the world and thousands of big and small places, there are only a few that stay with us even long after we have visited them. Vrindavan is one such place that haunts you not just for months but for years after you have visited this small yet vibrant land of Sri Krishna. As the Adi Purana beautifully puts it— “In all the three planetary systems, this earth is especially fortunate for here stands the town of Vrindavana.”
What is so special about Vrindavan? Why is it that every time a Krishna devotee visits Vrindavan, he/ she comes back with one predominant desire—to go back to this beautiful place one more time?
The reason is quite simple. Vrindavan inspires us not only as Sri Krishna’s leelakshetra, but also with its divine ambience that is imbued in Sri Krishna’s love. There is magic in its air and miracle in its lanes. Because there is Sri Krishna wherever you go. As Srila Prabhupada beautifully explains it,
“Vrindavana dhäma is non-different from Krishna because the name, form, fame, and place where the Lord manifests – are all identical with the Lord as absolute knowledge. Therefore, Vrindavana dhäma is as worshipable as the Lord.”
If you have ever wished to go back to Vrindavan year after year, if you have secretly dreamed of having a home in Vrindavan, if you have always wanted to stretch your Vrindavan visits by a few more hours, a Krishna Bhumi Holydays membership is for you.
Begin a journey of spiritual rejuvenation
Becoming a Krishna Bhumi Holydays member is the beginning of a spiritually elevating experience that will resonate with you for years to come. After all, how wonderful it is to spend a few days every year surrounded by the holiest 84 kos on earth! And a Holydays membership creates an atmosphere in which you can soak in the glory of the land and be one with Sri Krishna.
Stay close to the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir: When you become a Krishna Bhumi Holydays member, you have a home in Krishna Bhumi, a beautiful township that is taking shape close to the upcoming Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir. Conceived as the world’s tallest Krishna temple, this awe-inspiring creation will be a sight to behold. Begin your mornings with pujas and aartis and fill your days with the holy chants of Sri Krishna Mahamantra. And in the evening when you look out of your balcony, be mesmerised by the imposing Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir that will stand right outside!
Immerse yourself in kirtans and kathas, pravachans and bhajans: Apart from the daily pujas and aartis, the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir will also have regular bhajans, kirtans, and spiritual discourses. The Holy Yamuna is just 4.5km away. Reach the Kesi Ghat in just 10 minutes, take a boat ride in the Holy Yamuna and watch the enthralling evening aarti bidding adieu to the day.
Meditate in the vast green area: What is the best way to serve Sri Krishna? To surrender your thoughts to Him. To think about Him undisturbed by anything around you. Your surrounding plays an important role in creating the appropriate environment. Krishna Bhumi is surrounded by acres of greenery where you can peacefully chant the Hari-naam and feel one with Sri Krishna.
Perform all the pujas and parikramas you always wanted: A Holydays membership offers you a concierge service upon request that takes care of your entire itinerary. We will arrange all your pujas, parikramas, and darshans so that you can have a hassle-free Vrindavan experience, every single time.
Get virtually transported to the Dwapara Yuga: Twelve forests of the Dwapara Yuga, also known as the Dvadasha Kanana, are being recreated adjacent to Krishna Bhumi. Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir will also feature light and sound shows and story-telling with Sri Krishna at their centre. The Vedic cosmology exhibit and the Goloka Vrindavan Darshan viewing gallery inside the proposed Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir will further revive you spiritually.
Vrindavan is waiting right here with its promise of peace and profundity. A Holydays membership will help you imbibe all the positivity in the air of this holy dham.
We look forward to having you as part of our Holydays family.
How would you feel if you woke up every morning and have a darshan of Bihariji? Or if you could set your eyes on Shri Madan Mohan whenever you wished to?
For any Krishna bhakt, that would be a dream come true. But this dream seldom turns real if one is not in Vrindavan. Even when you are, it is not possible to have all the darshans, all the time.
The best alternative is to have a photograph of the Lord in His beautiful forms in the various temples of Vrindavan Dham. The only problem is that most of the temples here prohibit photography inside the temple premises because shutter sounds or flash lights are not desirable in a place that people associate with spirituality and serenity.
The Infinity Group understands a Krishna bhakt’s desire too well. That is why, this year, the Group has published a New Year calendar that is a eulogy to the deities of the 12 leading temples of Vrindavan. Each month features a beautiful image of Sri Krishna and narrates a brief story about the respective temple. The images of the deities in the calendar for the twelve consecutive months include Shri Radha Vrindavan Chandraodaya, Shri Banke Bihari, Shri Radha Vallabh, Shri Radha Shyamsunder, Shri Radha Damodar, Shri Radha Raman, Shri Radha Madan Mohan, Shri Radha Govind Dev, Shri Radha Gopinath, Shri Radha Gokulanand, Shri Gopeshwar Mahadev, and Shri Krishna Balram (ISKCON).
Shri Vikram Bhuwalka, the Marketing Manager of Krishna Bhumi said, “In this calendar, we are showcasing some of the revered deities of Vrindavan, so as to bring the devotees the Divine presence all through the year at their home and offices. The collection has been thoughtfully put together for the devotees staying far from Vrindavan to bring their consciousness to the Dham by having darshan of the presiding deities of Shri Dham Vrindavan.”
You can now download the calendar and keep it in your home or office for daily darshan. Here is your link:
