Saranagati Village


Saranagati Village is home to a community of practitioners of bhakti and followers of Srila Prabhupada. The collection of individual off-grid homesteads is spread across 10 kilometers in beautiful Venables Valley located near Ashcroft, BC, a four hour drive from Vancouver.

When our community started in 1982, the devotees who pioneered this project committed their lives and resources to building a spiritual community for themselves, their families and other like-minded devotees.  Spiritual association is the essence of spiritual advancement.

    Our community is managed by SARANAGATI VILLAGE HOLDINGS INC, (SVHI), a British Columbia company that provides a community environment which supports and promotes the practice of Krishna Consciousness.


    SVHI is a land holding company and does NOT provide guest services:

    • no guest facility, restaurant or shops
    • no accommodation or short term rentals
    • no bhakta program, instead see ISKCON Saranagati Temple


      When Prabhupada began ISKCON he formulated a clear mission statement. One of the 7 Purposes is to bring the members closer together for the purpose of teaching a simpler, natural way of life.

      The foundation for the enthusiasm and dedication to this mission comes from the daily practical application of spiritual principles.  The foundational principles are:

      Chanting 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra each day.

      Following the four regulative principles of:

      • No meat eating
      • No intoxication
      • No illicit sex
      • No gambling
