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.
Note: Students opting for certification will have to participate in the contact classes for one week (at least) in the third and fifth academic years.
Contact Classes are held at Bhimtal, Kumaon, Himalayas annually in September/October.
