Students are encouraged to participate in the contact classes as there is no real substitute to learning directly from the guru. In addition to the lessons, some mantra initiations are also done during these classes which enable you to be a perfect jyotiṣa paṇḍita. Please note that students opting for certification will have to participate in the contact classes for one week (at least) in the third and fifth academic years.

Guru Dakṣiṇa
The traditional method of giving a gift in cash or kind to the teacher is called guru dakṣiṇa. It is your wish and only if you wish to do so, you can make a goft or donation. What you give cannot be refused by the guru especially when he is in this mode of teacher of vedāñga jyotiṣa. So please think before giving anything as dakṣiṇa. If you wish to give money, please cover it in an envelope to avoid the effects of the strong rajas guṇa associated with money.
The appropriate time to give this is after the class and normally, in private.

The location is exceptional, right on the banks of Bhim Tal. You can actually see the lake from your rooms, forget the balconies which almost feel like dropping to the gleaming surface of Bhim Tal during moon lit evenings. It is at Bhimtal so very well accessible. And most importantly, though it overlooks the lake, it is not on the main road. So it can not get any better than that. It is a walking distance from the touristy market of Bhim Tal and hence on location and access.
22kms away from Nainital and at a height of 4500 feet above sea level Bhimtal is centrally situated among the famous lakes of Kumaon. A total of 9 lakes in the region offer excellent rowing paddle boating, trekking , fishing, swimming and picnic opportunities. This lake town has the distinct advantage of a very pleasant weather all around the year because of its ideal altitude. Bhimtal takes its name from mighty Bhim (one of the Pandavas). In Hinduism. This picturesque lake perked by an island is believed to be full of Mahabharata legends. Today this lake interlude has emerged as a ‘different’ tourist destination.
There are many government and private institutions in Bhimtal which include Tassar Regional Research Center (Ministry of Textile, Govt. of India), National Cold Water Fisheries Institute, Jan Sikshan Sansthan, Birla Institute of Applied Sciences (a Institute if Higher Technical Education), Kumaon University Campus (Faculty of Management and Pharmacy) and District Institute of Teachers Education (DITE).
