Common kitchen and administration

The common kitchen (Langar) daily provides vegetarian food for the workers and volunteers. This facility also benefits the needy. The tradition of common kitchen, in which no distinction is made due to social rank or religious affiliation, goes back to Guru Nanak (1469-1539). At certain celebrations (Bhandaras) there are sometimes thousands of people who take part in the meals.

The Langar is supplied with biogas from the nearby farm. Through the farm, the project is self-sufficient as far as basic food is concerned.

The two-storied Langar building houses various offices, a telephone exchange and a small print shop. A large part of the first floor serves as living space. Directly next to the Langar building is a large guest house for Indian visitors.

Guest house

During the preparation for the World Conference in 1994, a guest house was built according to western standards. It offers visitors from all over the world a pleasant stay in Kirpal Sagar.

Sixteen rooms, each of them equipped with two to three beds and a private bathroom, are available. The kitchen in the guesthouse provides vegetarian food for everyone. Surrounded by green parks, the guest house is located in a low traffic area, close to the Sarovar and the library.

Mainly for special celebrations, groups from abroad travel to Kirpal Sagar in order to participate in these events or to help with renovations and further development of the project. If you are interested in joining, please feel free to contact us and we will help you organize your trip.

Power supply

Since 2018, Kirpal Sagar solar is provided with solar energy. After over a year of planning, the first part of the photovoltaic system with an output of 250 kW was ready for operation in August 2018.

In two further steps, an additional 250 kW and 150 kW were connected to the grid. The supplied energy quantity of approx. 3300 kWh per day is sufficient to cover the majority of the electricity demand in Kirpal Sagar.
