Both airports are the same distance from the center, which is approximately 80 miles.

Transportation to/from Airport

FBIT Limo, a private transportation company, provides the most affordable rates compared to getting a taxi or shuttle at the airport. They provide professional and timely services all hours of the day, 7 days a week. If you are looking for safe, fast, reliable, and flexible transportation, this option will be best for you. Reservations are required, even if it is last minute. Please call (972) 979-4529 or visit their website at http://www.fbitlimo.com.

Option 2
Car rentals are available at both DFW and Dallas Love Field airports. If you will be visiting the center for only a few days then renting a car might be the most affordable option, also providing you with the most freedom for flight arrival times.

Items to Bring


We encourage bringing clothing that is comfortable and helps you feel more relaxed. Also, bring your personal towel and hygiene items. Due to the many seasons of Texas, it is important to bring the appropriate clothing by checking the weather ahead of time.

In the winter, it is especially important to bring warm sweaters, a heavy jacket, leggings, hat and gloves. In the spring and summer, it is important to bring light clothing as it can get very hot. If you plan on hiking, bring boots. In the spring, summer and fall, bug repellant is a good idea.
We recommend bringing an umbrella when raining, and a flashlight for walking at night.

For classes, please make sure to bring a notebook and 2-3 pens, so that you can take notes. Also, you may bring a shawl for mantra & meditation classes. Because this is a spiritual center, please do not wear short shorts, short skirts, tank tops, and similar revealing clothing.

WiFi Options


If you need internet access during your stay, you can purchase or bring your own internet USB or sim-card. Past guests have purchased the StraightTalk Web prepaid card at Wal-mart and it worked great for them.

You can also visit two local libraries (5-10 miles away) that offer free internet access.

We do not provide wifi/internet service at Siddhayatan.
