They also have a retreat center,one can stay there with prior booking at the Guest house.There is also a Library for spiritual studies.
The foundation also runs a woman college for arts,Vasanta college which was started by Annie Besant of Theosophy society.
There is a trail across the retreat center,you could spot some rare animals there.
River Varuna also flows through it.Krishnamurti Rural center which promotes rural crafts and sustainable life is across the river.One could volunteer there for some days.
This place is unlike the main Ghats of Varanasi.When i stayed there for some days around 5 years ago .With crop fields and many hundred year old trees , this is the place where you could live very close to the nature.
Dr. P.Krishna the Rector of the school is a famous Theosophist.He is a former physics professor, BHU university.
