COURSE FEE GUIDELINES
PLEASE CAREFULLY REVIEW
Each student is asked at the commencement of the course to make a financial contribution in exchange for their instruction. This type of equitable exchange is a practice dating back thousands of years from India (GURU DAKSHINA) and is an effort on our part to maintain the purity and consistency of the teaching tradition. The Course Fee is tiered. This ensures that everyone, employed, unemployed, or retired, have access to the same high-quality meditation instruction. It also ensures that all students approach this course with the same level of personal commitment and value the teaching equally. This system sets up a powerful and reciprocal relationship between teacher and student—something of great value is offered in exchange for something of great value. There are two payment options. You can choose to to pay the entire Course Fee upfront at a discount or set up monthly credit card payments for a more manageable amount.
Your Course Fee covers a lifetime of follow-up and support. That means once you take the course, you may have continued access to the teacher for support and may repeat the program, attend knowledge meetings, group meditations, office hours and other events at no additional cost.
The Course Fee is set up on the following tiers:
(A) Adults: Three monthly payments of $330 -or- one-time payment of $990.
(B) Full-time undergraduate and graduate students: Three monthly payments of $150 -or- one-time payment of $450. Proof of enrollment status required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about eligibility.
(C) Children ages 12-18: Three monthly payments of $120 -or- one-time payment of $360.
(D) Children ages 4-11 learn for free, although they require a parent or guardian who is an existing Vedic Meditator.
Please note that the Course Fee is non-refundable and due prior to instruction. For payment plans, once you are signed up and have made your first payment, you are responsible for the remainder of your Course Fee.
If you have questions or concerns regarding the Course Fee, or if you would like to learn more about a private course, please email email@example.com.

A limited number of need-based full or partial scholarships are available for those unable to pay the course fee or volunteer service. Please email info@benturshenmeditation to inquire.
