House for sale in Saranagati
Please contact for price
Large off grid 5.5 bedroom, 2.5 level octagon shaped house (3 rooms down & 2.5 rooms up) with ½ wrap around deck.
House rests in the center of a private, but central, 5 acre plot of land in the “Downtown” area of Saranagati Eco-Village in BC Canada.
Situated 6km up in the mountains, Saranagati is a pristine and largely certified organic 1700acre valley dedicated to Bhakti Yoga, country style.
House is located 1 large city block from our pre-k to grade 12 Govardhana Academy School – “the heart beat of the community”.
Our children are “homeschooled” together (with government approved curriculum) in a Krishna conscious environment, with Krishna and Balaram overseeing their daily activities. https://www.facebook.com/GovardhanaAcademy/
Adjacent to GA is Ahimsa Goshala, home to Saranagati’s cow protection program.
And in the other direction, we are located anout 2 city blocks from our beautiful Venables Valley Lake where we host the Rathayatra festival every summer.
During spring, summer and fall, the lake is active with bhajans, swimming, kayaking, beautiful festivals “alfresco” and picnics. In the winter, ice skating, hockey, and polar bear swimming (ice diving) keep everyone active. As well as tobogganing, cross country skiing and “do it yourself” snowboarding.
We are a 15 minute nature walk from the Sri Sri Gaura Nitai Temple where devotees gather for Sunday feast and festivals.
Saranagati is 25 minutes from the local towns of Ashcroft and Cache creek which hosts the grocery store, banks, post offices, swimming pools, HUB community Center, famous Desert Hills Ranch farm, gas stations, employment centre, hospital, schools, mechanics, laundry mat etc. Almost everything you need can be found in these 2 small towns.
And an hour and a ½ away is the larger town of Kamloops, BC which has all the amenities of a bustling metropolis including TRU (Thompson Rivers University)
TRU has been the home of the active “veggie & bhakti club” for the past 3 years where students are served a full veggie meal every Thursday and host of several festivals such as Ram Leela and Diwali.
Plenty of yoga studios available to rent for Kirtans and other programs. Kamloops is a ripe place for book distribution and street or sit down Kirtan in the park. The people are very friendly and interested.
Saranagati is a wonderful place to raise a family and host bhakti Yoga retreats. About 60 Vaishnava residents live here and gather regularly for Caitanya caritamrita readings, bhajans, programs, festivals, sports night and Sunday feasts. Saranagati is a co-op where all neighbours are dedicated to Krishna consciousness and are shareholders within the corporation.
