Damodara Vamsidhari Das: Dear devotees

Please accept my respectful obesisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

With blessings of His Grace Vaisesika Prabhu and more recently by His Holiness Radhanath Swami, i am pleased to announce that we have sold around 76 Tiles by last Sunday. This brings us more than 50% of our Target till 12/31. But lot of things are still to be done.
More importantly devotees have started reaching out to their friends and relatives and attracting them to be part of this history. e.g Balimardan Prabhu got 2 friends from India who purchased tile, Ravindra Prabhu influenced his company CFO to buy a Tile, Vishaka Lila Mataji Uncle from east coast got a Tile, and there are few more stories that i can write.

We request more devotees to take pledge of bringing more Tile donors.

Also, Radhaastmi is on 22 Sep and it would be a very auspicious occasion to donate Tile/s to be part of this history
You can pay us in installment in 60 or 90 days.

In case you wish to donate please visit isvnewtemple.com/donate to donate a tile or any amount and contact us at isvnewtemple@gmail.com

1 Akruranatha

Actually at ISV on Radhasthami, Srimati Radharani inspired an outpouring of donations. On Radhasthami itself we received pledges for over 50 tiles, and several more tiles were pledge in the days after.

One pledge was received from a senior devotee in another state who saw this article on Dandavats and was inspired. (If he gives permission I will tell his name).

Also, when Radhanatha Maharaja was hear he instructed his local disciples to donate tiles for each member of their family. Many devotees are sacrificing a lot and stretching their budgets to become part of the Wall.

So, we can announce that we have received pledges now for over 130 tiles! Our goal was to distribute 150 tiles by December 31, 2012, and it appears that with Sri Sri Radha Madanamohana’s grace we are well on our way to smashing that goal.

Granted, not all the pledges have been fulfilled yet. I myself pledged for one tile but have not yet scraped together the money. I hope to get my donation in soon and donate for more tiles from my family as I can. My stepson Ananta has also pledged for a tile of his own.

Dhrti and Ramdas were here and have already made some preliminary drawings for the wall. We are not ready to unveil any of the sketches, but in due course we will be revealing the design. From what I have seen I can say it will be beautiful. Also, Ramdas has done similar works and donor walls for other venues, all of which are very nice.

The plan is to have two separate panels with 250 tiles each in the entrance patio of the temple, along the same wall. Even though our goal is for 150 tiles by year end, I am hoping we can distribute 250 tiles so that one completed panel can go up early next year, perhaps even in time for opening of the temple.

We were thinking of different kinds of short-term “capital campaign” fundraising drives, even considering raffles and so on, when Govinda Caran Prabhu told us about a similar drive that succeeded in Seattle, where the devotees built a 500 tile parikram path. Damodar Vamsidhari and others supported the idea, and it has proven to be quite successful. The amount, $2,000 per tile, seems to be low enough that most devotees here can somehow or other afford it, yet high enough that it is quite a significant contribution.

Of course, the program is successful because we are all enlivened by getting tangible bliss, knowledge and detachment from our community devotional activities under Vaisesika Prabhu’s guidance.
