VSI 2021: Counselor Application is Open
Dear devotees,

We would like to invite you to apply to this year’s Vibhuti Saivaite Immersion (VSI). This year, VSI will tentatively run from Saturday, July 31, 2021 to Saturday, August 7, 2021.

As previously stated, the VSI program will be delivered virtually this year, with a possibility for US residents only to attend in person (depending on restrictions).

With the blessings of Aiya, Amma, and the Devi, VSI has been running successfully for 16 years. We ask for their blessings, as they continue to guide us as we offer this sacred service once again.


About the Counselor Program
Vibhuti Saivaite Immersion is designed to provide children the opportunity to connect with the sacred culture, values and practices of Sanatana Dharma. Counselors play a vital and much-valued role in creating a positive, educational experience for the campers, as well as ensuring their safety and well-being.

As such, it is important that interested counselor applicants meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrated commitment to learning the spiritual values and wisdom of Sanatana Dharma, and putting them into practice within one’s daily life
  • Experience working with children ages 10-18, OR genuinely enjoy being with children and care about their education, growth and well-being as individuals
  • Able to co-operate and work well with others in a team
  • 19 years of age as of December 31, 2021

Information regarding roles and responsibilities of a counselor can be found here.
