With winter taking hold accompanied by a light drizzle to extract the last remaining colors of the fall leaves we bring you this update from Camp Bhaktivedanta Archives. The quiet sleepy hollow of Prabhupada Village will for the next few weeks resonate with the sounds of construction in the service of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada!

By the blessings and financial help from Vaisnavas all around the world, the long awaited new vault construction has started and is well on its way!!!  
“All systems are go” and the excitement here is palpable.

Vapor/dust barrier put in place.

Demolition of old climate-controlled room begins.

Demolition in progress.

Backhoe ripping out the floor.

Pre-cut concrete slabs being removed.
Ceiling was repaired beforehand. 

The 24 x 24 inch footer with re-bar in place. 

It took two trucks to fill the
massive footer 
with concrete

First set of wall-forms put in place.

The actual thickness of the concrete wall will
be 8″ plus 2.5″ of insulation on either end
and fireproof boards in addition.

Over the last 28 years, I have had the great fortune to develop a wide array of both hard and soft skills. From planning, organizing, directing and realizing construction projects, to assisting individuals achieve a more fulfilling and balanced life through life coaching and leadership training.

I started in construction in 1988 while a full time resident of the Montreal Hare Krishna Temple. Construction has been my livelihood since 1989. Since then, I have been involved in a broad variety of construction projects: from completely rebuilding pre-American-Civil-War plantation homes, to contracting modern 3-story highly energy-efficient residences, to constructing a timber frame structure using almost exclusively non-electric tools, etc.

While living for 9 years in Prabhupada Village, Sandy Ridge, North Carolina, I obtained a State contractor’s license and built about a dozen homes, specializing in Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF’s), the medium we will use to build Srila Prabhupada’s vault. It is during that period that I have met and successfully completed many projects with Barry Moxley, from Moxley Construction, Inc., with whom I will partner on this vault project.

Today, I own a small volume, hands-on, high quality construction company specializing in low maintenance, energy-efficient construction. I work in the residential, institutional and light commercial markets.

In the last 2 years, I have developed an interest in natural building techniques, hoping to use a combination of some of such techniques in developing a devotional Eco-village project.

In the last 3 years, I have trained for, and completed 3 full marathons (26.2 miles or 42.2 KM), including, in 2011, the highly revered Boston marathon.

Some additional abilities I have developed over the years are a capacity to communicate clearly in high stress situations, being teamwork-oriented as well as adapting smoothly to changing conditions.

Compassionate yet authentic communication are my trademarks, I’m a personal development coach and an enthusiastic speaker. I love to assist people resolve conflicts and work together. I have recently embarked on a 2 year training on Conflict Resolution and Consensus Building.

I’m a Canadian citizen. I live in Florida with my wife, Bhakti-lata, my 2 daughters, Manjari & Ulupi, and their family.


Thank you for your time.
