Aug 30 2014 Ukraine Update

Hare KrishnaBy Niranjana Swami

We have good news and bad news from Ukraine. The good news is that practically all devotees from the Lugansk region have been safely accommodated elsewhere. Meanwhile, the bad news is that as of today, August 29, 2014, it appears that the conflict could very soon be moving into Mariupol, a seaport of 500,000 and home to a very large devotee community. We must be prepared to assist these devotees should the battlegrounds extend into Mariupol and therefore different options for them are already being considered.

Aug 16 2014 Spiritual Torchlight

Hare KrishnaBy Yogesh Jhanwar And Naman Kashyap

Books are Basis- The same holds true for these students too. Nadia Nath Nimai prabhu is determined to help these devotees to have access to the books of Srila Prabhupada in a language they can read- Braille. However, since BBT doesn’t have any Hindi publication in Braille, this seems to be a long haul. Nevertheless, Nadia Nath Nimai prabhu is unfazed and has even acquired a Braille printer recently as donation. Therefore we humbly appeal to the BBT to help these devotees by proving Hindi pdf copies of books of Srila Prabhupada.

Aug 6 2014 Krishna Lunch Forever Strengthens Ties with University of Florida

Hare KrishnaBy Bhaktin Amy

As most devotees can attest to, not every town receives its local Hare Krishna community with arms wide open. But through Srila Prabhupada’s plan, Gainesville has proven itself to be incredibly favorable. A quiet college town, Gainesville welcomed the University of Florida (and its 102 students) in 1906. Today, UF is known as one of the nation’s top universities, enrolling 50,000 students, many of which have heard the Holy Name, associated with devotees, and taken prasadam on the UF campus since 1971. Krishna Lunch is an integral part of the student experience at UF with students being introduced to Krishna Lunch during official campus tours and alumni reminded of Krishna Lunch in alumni magazine.

Jul 15 2014 An Appeal from Niranjana Swami, co-GBC for Ukraine

Hare KrishnaBy Ukrainian Vaisnava Refugee Fund

Needless to say that the military operation badly affected our devotee communities in those cities as well. By Krsna’s grace, no devotee has been killed or injured in the conflict, although a few have had a very narrow escape. But while some of them continue risking their lives trying to maintain temple worship and programs, many find it necessary to relocate their families to safety, leaving their homes and possessions behind.

May 14 2014 A New Temple for London!

By Murli Manohara dasa

Our bold request of requiring land in Regents Park is in pursuit of Srila Prabhupada's instructions to his disciples when he was personally present in London, but we are also taking into consideration that Srila Prabhupada was very pragmatic in his plans to spread Krishna Consciousness. In this regard, Srila Prabhupada was also requesting his disciples to consider other locations in London for a temple should Regents Park not be available. Our New Temple Committee is thus also pursuing this same mood.

Apr 30 2014 ToVP and Akshaya Tritiya: A good day to give a Golden Brick

By Vraja Vilasa das

Friday, May 2nd, is Akshaya Tritiya, considered to be an extremely auspicious day on the Vedic calendar. It is a day bereft of all inauspiciousness and any endeavors engaged in on this day will have all success. It is totally unnecessary to check the muhurtha (time of day) for any activity undertaken on this day. The word Akshaya means “that which never diminishes”. Whatever services or dana (gifts) offered to the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna or his devotees on this day receives manifold eternal benefits.
